Phillies | Ryan Howard in homer drought

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard hasn't hit a homer in his last 67 plate appearances and has just one in 130, with his last big fly coming on May 29. Manager Charlie Manuel said he has no plans to move Howard out of the cleanup spot. Howard is batting .289 (24-for-83) with 10 extra-base hits over his last 24 games and was 11-for-33 on the road trip that just ended.

Fantasy Tip: Howard may very well start looking like the early-season version of himself soon, but how much his balky knee will let him take advantage of it remains to be seen. He's looked a bit healthier lately, though, and his extra-base knocks could start turning into dingers soon. What's his owner's asking price?
