Phillies GM Ruben Amaro on Ryan Howard

Here are quotes from Phillies GM Ruben Amaro on first baseman Ryan Howard's injury status, courtesy of Matt Gelb from the Philadelphia Inquirer. Howard is currently wearing a walking boot.

"I don't know when he's going to start baseball activities," Amaro said. "I don't have any idea. I don't have any time frame one way or another. Hopefully he can get the boot off as soon as possible and we can be sure. We're not going to do anything with him unless we're sure the infection is out.

"He could be backed up for a while. I don't know. I really don't know. I don't have any time frame."

Howard's current ADP of 159.48 looks too optimistic after these comments from Amaro. Gelb stated that Howard started wearing the boot shortly after the procedure to remove the infection on Feb. 27th, and was told he needs to wear it for 7-10 days. So look for Howard to stop wearing the boot anywhere from March 5th to March 8th. But, according to Amaro, he doesn't know if Howard will start baseball activities right away. Howard has been told to stay away from the team spring training complex, so this is a setback for the Phillies first baseman.

I will stick with my June timeframe for him to return to the Phillies lineup.
