Ryan Howard is training "furiously" and remains positive about his chances of getting an opportunity to continue his playing career, per FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
"I think I can still go out there and compete, and compete at a high level," said Howard, who is "open" to taking on a DH role at this point in his career. "I understand that I’m not going to play every single day. With the way that the game has changed, with teams having analytics and all that, I understand all that stuff." Howard fits best as a designated hitter against right-handed pitching, but other bats still remain on the market like Brandon Moss and Pedro Alvarez. It's not surprising that he's waiting around. The 37-year-old was better during the second half last year and finished with 25 homers in 362 plate appearances, but he hit just .196/.257/.453 overall. Jan 25 - 8:55 AM
