Ryan Howard agrees to minor league deal with Rockies

The Rockies inked first baseman Ryan Howard to a minor league contract on Saturday, per a team announcement.

Howard signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves in April, but never appeared in a game and was released on May 8 after struggling in the minors. His final season in the majors yielded uneven results, pairing an impressive 25 home runs with a less impressive.196/.257/.453 batting line in 362 PA.

Equity Research Analyst's Stock Ratings: BioLine Rx Ltd (BLRX), Internap Corporation (INAP)
The firm acquired 685,018 shares of the information technology services provider's stock, valued at approximately $2,514,000. As of the end of the quarter Principal Financial Group Inc had bought a total of 4,499 shares growing its holdings by 44.4%.

In exchange for a player to be named later (who would eventually be left-hander Fabio Castro), the Phillies acquired first baseman/outfielder Matt Stairs from the Toronto Blue Jays. Howard was also plagued by a lack of discipline at the plate and struck out 636 times between 2012-2016. The team bought out his contract for $10 million.

Howard was an integral member of the Phillies 2008 World Series Championship campaign, finishing second in MVP voting while leading the league in home runs (48) and RBI (146).

Howard won Rookie of the Year honor with the Phillies in 2005, swatting 22 homers and hitting.288. Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level. The 37-year-old Howard, if given a chance to play, could give the Rockies a left-handed power bat off the bench in September and potentially October.
