Howard (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

The highly touted rookie recorded an unimpressive 5.92 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in his first six big-league starts before being sidelined with shoulder stiffness in mid-September. He isn't expected to be ready to start any of the Phillies' final three games, but he could make an appearance out of the bullpen.
