Ryan Howard signs minor-league deal with Colorado Rockies

Former Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hasn't given up on baseball.

Howard, 37, had signed a minor-league deal with the Atlanta Braves earlier this season and hit.184 (7 for 38) in 11 games with the team's triple-A affiliate in Gwinnett before being released May 8.

Yes, that Ryan Howard, the 37-year-old former Phillies MVP who played in his last major league game almost 11 months ago. One season later, he was named as the league's Most Valuable Player, logging 58 homers and 149 RBI while totaling 383 total bases.

Wozniacki ends Stephens' Toronto run, roars into final
After beating Spain's Rafael Nadal yesterday, the 18-year-old wild card entry overcame Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. Wozniacki is a 2010 Rogers Cup victor .

The Rockies are hoping to hit the same kind of gold with Howard they did with Mark Reynolds, who was signed to a minor league contract before the 2017 season began.

Howard was the NL Rookie of the Year in 2005 and MVP in 2006, and he led the Phillies to the 2008 World Series title. Throughout his career, Howard has blasted 382 home runs and drove in 1,194 runs at the major league level.

A three-time All-Star and former National League MVP, Howard once ranked among the game's premier power hitters during a prime that stretched from 2006-2011.
