Ryan Howard takes batting practice

Ryan Howard took batting practice yesterday, the first time he’s done so since being cleared for baseball activities at the end of April.  Ruben Amaro was pleased, calling it “progress.”

The next step will be a minor league rehab assignment, though there’s no timetable for that.  The thinking is still that he’ll return to the bigs in June. Though it is worth noting, nothing has been on schedule in his rehab so far.
