Phillies | Concerned about Ryan Howard
The Philadelphia Phillies are a little concerned that 1B Ryan Howard's (knee) meniscus issues may be related to his Achilles' injury that he suffered in the playoffs back in 2011. "When you look at the meniscus, there's a little piece of it that we're concerned about," trainer Scott Sheridan said. "There's certain tests that make it look like he has a meniscus tear, and that's not as clear cut. If you did an MRI on all of it and you find these changes in the meniscus, the question is – is that what's really causing the symptoms?" Howard is hitting .245 with six home runs and 22 RBIs in 41 games, and his .713 OPS is the lowest mark of his career.
Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on how Howard progresses over the next several days. He's out tonight, and the team is listing him as day-to-day. These could very easily become a situation that lands the lefty slugger on the disabled list. In that event, Freddy Galvis would likely be a regular in the lineup at third base with Michael Young shifting across the diamond to first.
