Ryan Howard will be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing a procedure to have stitches removed from an infected area of his surgically-repaired left Achilles tendon.

Howard was also put on antibiotics to combat the infection. The important part is that the Achilles repair remains intact, but the new wound must heal before he can resume his rehab. The Phillies were previously saying that Howard was "ahead of schedule," but it's increasingly clear that he won't be a factor until at least May.
