Phillies | Ryan Howard not part of platoon

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard will rest against tough left-handed pitchers, according to manager Charlie Manuel. However, Manuel indicated that Howard isn't in a platoon situation at first base with OF John Mayberry Jr.

Fantasy Tip: You'll have to check on a daily basis whether Howard is in the lineup against a left-handed pitcher. He's hitting only .169 against southpaws this year. If you have the luxury, you may just want to sit him against all lefties.
