Ryan Howard is healthy, and now that the weather is warming up, we should see Ryan bloom back into one of the league’s most feared hitters.
A combination of Howard and Byrd could be a one-two punch for the Phils this season.
So far, Howard has only 1 HR on the season and he has yet to catch that home run swing at the plate that we’ve all loved for many years now. Howard’s injuries of the 2012 and 2013 seasons impacted a quest to be the Phillies all-time homerun leader, and now with 312 total HR’s – it would seem almost impossible for him to eclipse Mike Schmidt’s 548 HR as a Phillies player.
For a while, Howard seemed to be on a path to Cooperstown and the Hall of Fame, can he regain that momentum again and help this Phillies team like he did now some years ago?
