Spencer Howard could begin season in Phillies' rotation

Phillies pitching prospect Spencer Howard could wind up beginning the season in the team's rotation.

Fantasy Impact

The original plan for Howard was to limit his starts in the early part of the season so that he could be with the big league club for the stretch run. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic the team might not have to be as cautious with Howard as they otherwise would've. Basically, the innings limit won't be as big of an issue in a shortened season. Aaron Nola, Jake Arrieta, Zack Wheeler, and Zach Eflin figure to take the first four spots of the rotation. Howard earning the fifth starters' job would then bump Nick Pivetta and Vincent Velasquez to the bullpen.

Spencer Howard tosses scoreless inning in Spring debut Tuesday

Phillies pitcher Spencer Howard made his Spring debut on Tuesday, allowing two hits and striking out one over a scoreless inning of work against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Philadelphia's top prospect, Howard had been dealing with a knee injury early in camp. However, he progressed to bullpens recently and made his Spring debut without issue yesterday. With a number of question marks on the Philadelphia staff, Howard is likely to make his big league debut at some point this season.

Fantasy Impact

Howard tweaked his knee back in mid-February, which got him off to a late start for spring training. The 23-year-old has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game. Howard should ultimately be ready for the start of the minor league seasons and is generally considered a top-30 prospect in the sport. He could debut with the Phillies later this summer if all goes well.
