The Philadelphia Phillies are encouraged that 1B Ryan Howard's (knee) injury could have been worse, although he's slated to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery. It's unknown when he'll go under the knife, but the team is hopeful that he'll return this year. General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. is comparing Howard's knee injury to C Erik Kratz's, who had surgery June 12 and is on a rehab assignment.
