Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has lowered the hand positioning during his swing. After the suggestion came from OF Marlon Byrd, Howard first tried it Sunday, July 7, during a pinch-hit appearance and used it in each of his at-bats Monday, July 8. In his last 18 games, Howard is hitting just .185 with no homers, one double, two RBI, a .484 OPS, 16 strikeouts and eight walks.
Fantasy Tip: Maybe it will lead to harder hits. It's a decent reason to stash Howard in deep leagues, but if you're in a shallow game, you shouldn't be clinging to him. He's still losing AB to John Mayberry Jr.
