Orioles on Ryan Howard's pre-approved list for trades
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/13/14) The Orioles and the Phillies discussed a package deal that included outfielder Marlon Byrd and first baseman Ryan Howard during the winter meetings, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports Saturday.
According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, the Orioles are one of eight teams on Howard's pre-approved list for trades. An American League team seems like an ideal landing spot for the veteran, who could spend the final two years of his contract as a designated hitter. However, according to Heyman, there's "not a lot there at the moment" between the two clubs.
Howard has two years and a guaranteed $60 million remaining on his contract, with a $23 million option for 2017. He slashed .223/.310/.380 with 23 homers, 95 RBI while also striking out 190 times over 569 at-bats last season
Report: Phillies, Orioles discuss 1B Ryan Howard
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) The Phillies and Orioles have talked about first baseman Ryan Howard this week, the New York Daily News reports.
It's unclear how much interest the Orioles have in Howard, a player who has declined in recent years and is owed $25 million in each of the next two seasons as well as a $10 million buyout of his 2017 option. He hit .223/.310/.380 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 569 at-bats in 2014.
Royals interest in trading for Ryan Howard is minimal

|(11/11/14) While the Royals talked to the Phillies about first baseman Ryan Howard, Kansas City showed little interest in trading for the veteran slugger, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
The Royals responded to Philadelphia's inquiry by saying, "We're concentrating on pitching."
Report: Royals have talked about acquiring Ryan Howard
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/11/14) The Royals are showing interest in acquiring Phillies veteran first baseman Ryan Howard, according to USA Today.
The Phillies are trying to trade Howard and the $60 million remaining on his contract. The Royals are unlikely to take on that much money, but if the Phillies will pay most of the contract, the Royals could be interested in trading for Howard, who turns 35 on Nov. 19.
The Royals have had internal discussions about acquiring Howard, according to the report. They believe Howard could replace Billy Butler as the team's DH and be the 20-homer, 75-RBI threat they need to get back to the World Series.
Although, a source told the Philadelphia Daily News that Howard isn't considered the top option for the Royals. Trading for Howard could be an option down the road, if the team's first few options don't pan out.
Report: Phillies hoping to trade first baseman Ryan Howard
|(11/4/14) Looking to rebuild their roster after a disappointing 2014 season, the Phillies have begun seeking trade partners for first baseman Ryan Howard, according to ESPN senior writer Buster Olney.
Howard, 35, hit .223 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 2014, but his production has begun to dip below his salary, which stands at $25 million for 2015 and 2016.
|2014 summary: Staying off the surgeon's table and away from the disabled list represented a victory of sorts for Ryan Howard, but 2014 was still a frustrating season for the Phillies' veteran first baseman. With just 23 homers over a full season, Howard didn't hit with his customary power, and a .223 batting average and 65 runs scored were further signs of his lagging production. In addition to his on-the-field troubles, Howard was strained by an ongoing legal battle with his family.|
Playing time status: Howard has been the target of frequent trade rumors, but should he remain with the Phillies, it is likely that he will sit against left-handed starting pitchers, even though he hit southpaws better than he hit righties last season.
2015 outlook: Howard could hang on as a top 20 first baseman, and that gives him some late-round value in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues as a potential utility or CI option. In points leagues, Howard no longer has the power or playing time to offset a high strikeout total, so he can be saved for mixed league formats with 14 teams or more.
