Phillies | Ryan Howard resting again

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard (knee) isn't in the lineup Wednesday, July 3. It's the fourth time in the club's nine games on their current road trip that Howard won't start, and it's his fifth day off in the last 10. Manager Charlie Manuel said he notices by the way Howard walks when the first baseman's knee hurts more than usual.

Fantasy Tip: It's something his owners will have to deal with the rest of the way, but with his recent turnaround, he could still be a productive mixed CI. His owners will simply have to prepare contingency plans and, in daily-lineup leagues, watch for his lineup status.
