Howard now with Phillies
I learned tonight that Kevin Howard signed with the Phillies earlier this week and was assigned to High-A Clearwater. While Howard was a borderline Double-A/Triple-A guy, he was released by the Yankees on the final day of spring training, limiting the teams with the roster space for him. So it's very likely that his Florida State League assignment is very temporary, and he should be up in Reading sooner rather than later.
