Ryan Howard had been swinging the bat well before a recent skid, which continued on Monday. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Philllies 6-2 win over the Marlins. Howard is now 3-for-22 with 13 strikeouts over the last eight games.
Howard is winding down his time in Philadelphia and is likely to see decreased playing time over the final few weeks. Howard can still provide power, but it's hard to see many fantasy owners relying on him for the stretch run.
