Ryan Howard on Track for Friday Return
Howard said he felt fine after fielding grounders for 45 minutes before the Phillies' 5-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays and plans to play at Atlanta when he's eligible to be activated this Friday.
Howard is scheduled for a rehab assignment as the DH Wednesday and Thursday for the Class-A Lakewood BlueClaws. He's batting just .204 with six homers and 23 RBIs, and has 39 strikeouts in 98 at-bats - a bit of a slump after hitting .313 with 58 homers last season.
