Ryan Howard: Out Friday And Saturday
Update: Howard will not play Friday or Saturday, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Recommendation: There's been no word of an injury to Howard, but he's been really struggling at the plate this week (0-for-his-last-16), and with two lefties due up for the Dodgers, the Phillies will take this opportunity to let Howard clear his mind. He is still scheduled to take part in hitting drills over the next two days, so it seems likely Howard will be back in there for Sunday's finale.
