The Phillies have placed Ryan Howard on the 15-day disabled list with a left quadriceps strain. Howard was off to an awful start to the 2007 season before the Phillies decided to shut him down. In 29 games so far, Howard was 20 for 98 (.204 avg., .809 OPS) with 13 runs, 6 homers, 23 RBIs and an amazing 39 whiffs! The Phillies have brought up Chris Coste to replace Howard on the roster. Coste has played in 29 games in the minors this season and he was 25 for 100 (.250 avg, .634 OPS) with 11 runs scored and 11 RBIs. Look for Coste to help out the Phillies quite a bit as he played well for them in 2006.
