Phillies | Ryan Howard surgery result creates optimism

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard (knee) underwent a successful debridement of the left medial meniscus on Wednesday, July 10. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said that what the surgeon saw was better than expected. The GM suggested that the team is likelier to be a buyer as the trade deadline approaches because he's confident that they'll get Howard back in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Howard may still be limited when he gets back into action, so fantasy owners may only be looking at a player who was performing at about the level he was before he landed on the DL. Amaro has yet to prove that he's a long-term thinker, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him remain on the offensive.
