Phillies | Ryan Howard making good progress

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard (knee) has been rehabbing at the team's spring training facility in Clearwater, Fla., and he has reportedly made good progress. He will head to the Florida instructional league to continue his recovery. "He's really getting into shape," interim manager Ryne Sandberg said Tuesday, Sept. 10. "He's lost some weight and he seems to be going about it great. He's taken to it well, preparing himself to play in Instructional League games. All reports are things are going well for him."

Fantasy Tip: Howard is expected to be ready for spring training, but fantasy owners will want to think long and hard about drafting him. That's now two seasons in a row where he has had a difficult time staying healthy.
