Ryan Howard on Disabled List; MRI Scheduled for Today

Ryan Howard is out of play for the next two weeks, having been placed on the disabled list on Saturday following problems with his left knee. An MRI is scheduled for today, with Ryan telling the AP that he “want[s] to be smart about it” and not cause any further injury. However, Howard did play through the pain Saturday because he thought he “could go out and play and try to give it a go.” With all this trouble for the Phils this season, perhaps the city should just send the whole team a card: “Get Better. Soon.” [ESPN]
