by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Howard has been out of the Phillies lineup in five of the last six games, with Jeff Francoeur taking his familiar No. 4 spot in the lineup. Part of that is due to Philadelphia's youth movement and part of it had to do with the team facing four left-handed pitchers.
