Ryan Howard agrees to minor league deal with Rockies

Rockies agree to minor league deal with slugger Howard

Should he secure a spot on the active roster come September, he figures to slot in behind starting first baseman Mark Reynolds, who's already mashing.278/.363/.504 with 23 homers and an.867 OPS, and No. 3 infield prospect Ryan McMahon.

The Colorado Rockies announced today that they have agreed to term on a Minor League contract with former Philadelphia Phillies great, Ryan Howard. He was struggling with the Atlanta Braves Triple-A affiliate with a.184 batting average over 11 games before being released.

Howard has appeared in the three All-Star games (2006, 2009, 2010) and won the Rookie of the Year award in 2005 followed by the National League MVP in his sophomore season in 2006.

Yes, that Ryan Howard, the 37-year-old former Phillies MVP who played in his last major league game almost 11 months ago. Howard was also plagued by a lack of discipline at the plate and struck out 636 times between 2012-2016.

Now 37 years of age, the former National League MVP (2006) and World Series champ (2008) will get another chance to play ball. He led the league in home runs in both 2006 and 2008, and has almost 400 homers (382 to be exact) in his 13-year career.

He left the city as one of the best players in Phillies' history.
