Phillies | Ryan Howard in good shape

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 08:35:50 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is in the best shape manager Ryne Sandberg has seen him in the last three years after Howard spent the winter in a conditioning program.

Fantasy Tip: Howard indeed looks trim, but if that translates into on-field performance is another question. He had a rather productive season for someone that hit .223 with 190 strikeouts in 2014. He hit 23 home runs and drove in 95. After a season of turmoil, on and off the field for Howard, he could be a nice flyer for a corner infielder spot late in drafts.

Phillies | Ryan Howard will start at first

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:08:14 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard will be the starting first baseman this season, according to manager Ryne Sandberg. Howard played in 153 games in 2014 after missing half of each of the previous two seasons. He hit .223 with 23 home runs and 95 RBIs, led the majors with 190 strikeouts and had a career-low .380 slugging percentage.

Fantasy Tip: At 35, Howard has little upside at this point of his career. However, he is still a capable power hitter and a viable option in the late rounds of drafts, if your team needs a power spike.

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 17:36:16 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard could play better this year, in the opinion of MLB.com's Todd Zolecki. Howard endured a legal battle with his family last year that has been resolved, and Zolecki said many have wondered if a clearer mind would help him on the field. Howard could also be motivated to silence his critics, one of whom is Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard isn't the primary focus of the Kansas City Royals. Instead, the team is "concentrating on pitching." The Royals have basically no trade interest in Howard, and he's not even a fit with the current offense. The Royals have talked to free-agent SP Ervin Santana (Braves) and have looked at free-agent SP Brandon McCarthy (Yankees), Jason Hammel (Athletics) and others.
