Idea of Phillies trading Ryan Howard starting to look doubtful
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The idea of the Phillies trading struggling first baseman Ryan Howard at some point this season is starting to look doubtful, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Friday.

Howard is off to a rough start, and was bumped down to the No. 7 spot in the batting order. He is hitting .167 (5 for 32) with three doubles and one RBI in eight games. Scouts believe that Howard's timing has been off this season.

"He looks lost," one scout said. "Sometimes big guys just lose it, just like that."

Phillies drop 1B Ryan Howard down to No. 7 spot in order
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg bumped struggling first baseman Ryan Howard down to seventh in the batting order for Thursday's contest against the Nationals. Howard batted cleanup in his first seven games with the Phillies before receiving the night off on Wednesday.

Howard mired in a 4-for-27 slump with three doubles, 10 strikeouts and no walks in seven games. It will be the first time he'll hit seventh in the order since April 21, 2006, per MLB.com.

"I talked to him this afternoon and just told him, 'Hey, it's creating a lineup, trying to win the baseball game,'" Sandberg said. "And so [I told him], 'In the meantime, just keep working.' Howie's doing everything that's asked on the defensive side of the ball, and the offensive side of the ball. If he could get hot, then I'd have some flexibility and choices in the lineup, so that would be the best scenario."

Phillies want first baseman Ryan Howard swinging more at fastballs
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg wants to see more production from first baseman Ryan Howard, reports Philly.com.

Howard, who is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game, is scuffling along with a .148 average in 27 at-bats so far this year. Sandberg said although Howard is getting closer to the plate in the batter's box, he needs to be more aggressive when he sees fastballs.

"The amount of fastballs that he's getting, for me he should look fastball and really disregard the breaking ball until he gets two strikes," Sandberg said.

Phillies' Utley, Howard both off to rough starts in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Through the Phillies' first seven games, veterans Chase Utley and Ryan Howard are a combined 6 for 43 with no home runs and four RBI.

"It sucks," Howard said of their coinciding slumps, per The Philadelphia Daily News. "Yeah, it sucks. Obviously, we want to get off to a better start. We're what, six or seven games in? It's definitely going to turn around. Nobody plans on trying to get off to a slow start.

"The only thing we can do is keep grinding and keep swinging, try to put together good at-bats. We've had opportunities, you just have to come through in other situations."

This is the worst start of Utley's career, while it is the second worst of Howard's. Utley is 2 for 22 with six strikeouts, two walks and no extra-base hits, while Howard is 4 for 24 with three doubles, eight strikeouts and no walks. In 2013, Howard began the season mired in a 4-for-27 slump.

"It's just a matter of time with Chase," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "I have no worries there. He gets quality at-bats. And no worries there. Chase will be fine. We just need to create some opportunities with men on base for those guys in the middle of the lineup."
