Phillies 1B Ryan Howard helped in his efforts to be traded
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) While the Phillies were unable to trade first baseman Ryan Howard this offseason, it wasn't because of a lack of effort on Howard's part, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Howard, who was trying to accommodate the Phillies' wishes, redid his approved trade list of nine teams by replacing NL teams that has been on his list for a long time.
The Orioles, Royals and Rays were among the new nine-team list Howard provided. All three teams are believed to have contacted the Phillies, but all three teams went in different directions. The Royals signed Kendrys Morales, the Orioles re-signed Delmon Young and the Rays traded for John Jaso to help with their DH needs.
The remaining organizations on Howard's list of nine teams he could be traded without approval include Tigers, Angels, Mariners, Yankees, Rangers and Red Sox, as ESPN first reported.
Howard is batting .217 (10 for 46) with one double, three home runs and eight RBI in 16 spring games. He also has 13 strikeouts and one walk.

Report: Phillies willing to swallow $50 million to trade Ryan Howard
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) The Phillies are willing to swallow a "significant sum" -- approximately $50 million of the $60 million -- remaining on first baseman Ryan Howard in order to move him in a trade this season, according to Anthony Castrovince of Sports On Earth.
Howard has struggled at the plate in recent years, and is in search of a pain-free 2015 campaign. The 35-year-old hit .223/.310/.380 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI in 569 at-bats last season. He has a career .265/.355/.526 slash line in 11 seasons. Howard has not hit 30-plus home runs in a season since 2011.
Phillies 1B Ryan Howard: My legs are 'pretty much pain-free'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/16/15) Phillies slugger Ryan Howard went 2 for 4 with a double and a home run in a spring game on Sunday. After the game, he told reporters his legs feel fine and pain-free leading up to the season opener, per MLB.com.
"If it seems like it's night and day to you, then it's night and day," Howard said. "I feel good. My legs feel good. My legs feel fine. I did what I needed to do. I was pretty much pain-free this offseason, so I was able to get back on my workouts to do what I need to get my legs stronger."
Phillies' Ryan Howard hits first homer of spring
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hit his first home run of the spring on Friday.
Howard hit a two-run shot to right off of Rays starter Chris Archer. He went 1-for-3 with one strikeout to bring his spring average to .200.
Howard hit .223 with 23 home runs and 95 RBI last season.
|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.
