Ryan Howard Activated From Disabled List; Ross Gload Put On DL To Make Room

Ryan Howard is almost back. MLB.com's Phillies writer Todd Zolecki tweets that the Phillies have activated him from the 15-day disabled list:

The Phillies have activated Ryan Howard from the DL. They placed Ross Gload on the DL (strained right groin) to make room for him on roster.

Howard would be the last big piece to get healthy for the Phillies' stretch run. The team has been bolstered by the recent returns of Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins.

It is unclear whether Howard will play tonight against the Washington Nationals, though Zolecki indicates he might. If he does, it would be the first time he has faced Nats phenom Stephen Strasburg.
