Phillies manager Pete Mackanin indicated Tuesday that Ryan Howard could be platooned against left-handed pitching in 2016.
The arrangement worked well during the second half last season, with Darin Ruf thriving against southpaws. Mackanin hasn't made an official decision about how the playing time will shake out in 2016, but Howard will need to perform. "I’m going to make that decision in the spring," said Mackanin. "But at this point, I’m going to have a discussion with Ryan and tell him, ‘If you want to face lefties, you have to hit them better. If you don’t hit them better, I’m going to platoon.’ That’s basically what we’re looking at. It’s gotten to that point." Howard, who is entering the final guaranteed year of his contract, hit just .130 with a .418 OPS vs. left-handers last season. Jan 20 - 10:15 AM
