Braves Vs. Phillies: Ryan Howard In Lineup For Philadelphia

Ryan Howard will make his season-debut for the Phillies on Friday night, as Philadelphia activated him from the DL today and put him in the No. 4 slot in the lineup. Howard has been out since recording the final out of last season and rupturing his Achilles. His return comes sooner than expected.
