Phillies Issue Statement in Ryan Howard’s Defense Amid PED Scandal

USA Today Sports

Yesterday evening, a report came out from Al Jazeera regarding the use of performance enhancing drugs in sports, listing a list of notable athletes in the report.

Major League Baseball Stars Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Howard were on the report. Howard, who has been a member of the Phillies his entire 11-year career had his attorney deny the allegations about PED’s, and now the Philles have as well:

Howard batted .229 with 23 home runs and 77 runs batted in over the duration of 129 games. He is due over $40 million over the next two years with a $10 million buyout option for 2017, which could be likely for the Phillies to do in their rebuild.
