Ryan Howard Signs With Colorado Rockies

Former Philadelphia Phillie Ryan Howard is returning to baseball as he signed a minor-league contract with the Colorado Rockies, the team announced via Twitter on Saturday afternoon. It is unclear to which Rockies affiliate Howard will report.

Howard won Rookie of the Year honor with the Phillies in 2005, swatting 22 homers and hitting.288.

He left the city as one of the best players in Phillies' history.

The following five seasons, Howard finished in the top 10 in MVP voting.

Howard signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves in April, but never appeared in a game and was released on May 8 after struggling in the minors.

However, Howard's run as a franchise centerpiece came to an end in October 2011 when he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in the postseason against the St. Louis Cardinals. The following season, Howard was voted the National League MVP after registering a league-leading 58 home runs and 149 RBI while hitting.313.

Famously, Howard was signed to a massive contract by the Phillies after so much success and began to decline nearly immediately. Reynolds not only made the team but has been one of Colorado's biggest offensive contributors and a defensive stalwart at first base.
