Ryan Howard: (Achilles) Rehab Assignment Looming

Update: Howard (Achilles) hopes to begin an official rehab assignment in the next week, the Phillies' official site reports.

Recommendation: GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said in an interview on KYW Radio that Howard has been improving each day. "He's getting a little bit better and stronger," Amaro told KYW. "He's getting a lot of at-bats in simulated games and such. That's a good sign. He's starting to move around the bases a little bit better each day. Once we get him to as close to 100 percent on the bases as we can get him, we'll probably start an actual official rehab on him."
