Ryan Howard looking to get career back on track
One of the most feared sluggers in the game when he’s right, Howard missed the start of last season after rupturing his Achilles during the 2011 playoffs.
Howard played in just 71 games in 2012 and hit .219/.295/.423 with 14 home runs and 56 RBI in 260 at-bats.
The 33-year-old is signed for $95 million over the next four years with an option for 2017 that contains a $10 million buyout, so, for better or worse, the Phillies are essentially stuck with him for the foreseeable future.
That’s just fine if he keeps hitting like he has this spring, where he has gone 13-for-39 with four home runs and 12 RBI.
I hope he will make his season better. He has been well known by public
