Phillies 1B Ryan Howard belts ninth home run on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/21/15) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard is going to miss Coors Field. Howard homered for the second straight game, going 1 for 4 with the solo bomb in Thursday's loss to the Rockies. Howard's fifth-inning home run was his ninth on the season.
"I mean all that stuff is cool," Howard said about moving up the home-run leaderboard, per MLB.com. "For me, it's just a matter of just getting back to playing ball and just playing my game. That's been my focus all year, is just playing ball. Everything that comes with it, you have good days, bad days, just try to stay even keel and just do what you do."
Howard's bat is really catching fire lately. He now has 13 hits in his last 31 at-bats over his last eight games.

Phillies' Chase Utley, Ryan Howard out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Phillies second baseman Chase Utley and first baseman Ryan Howard are not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Diamondbacks.
Utley is 3 for 6 with a walk, two doubles and two RBI in two games since being moved from third to sixth in the lineup, but he'll get a break Sunday, with Andres Blanco filling in at second base and batting second.
Howard had started seven straight games coming into Sunday's contest, hitting .259/.310/.444 with one home run and three RBI in 27 at-bats during that stretch. Darin Ruf is drawing the start at first base.
The Phillies are home underdogs (+115) against the Diamondbacks Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.
Phillies 1B Ryan Howard goes 3 for 4 in win over Pirates
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/14/15) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hit his seventh home run of the season during Thursday afternoon's 4-2 win over the Pirates.
Howard went yard in the fifth inning off of Radhames Liz, hitting a solo shot to right field. Howard finished the game 3 for 4 as he also recorded two singles. He's now hitting .230/.293/.478 this season.
Howard is now hitting .293 in his last 12 games.
|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.
