Only five players in the history of Major League Baseball have ever hit 60 homers in a single season. In 2006 Ryan Howard fell just two short, finishing with 58 homers and a .313/.425/.659 triple slash line. In a four year span from 2006-2009 Howard was one of the game's most dominant offensive players. During that time he averaged a whopping 50 home runs and143 RBI while finishing in the top five in MVP voting every year.
Unfortunately he hasn't been the same since suffering an Achilles injury on the Phillies' final at bat of 2011. Save for one season he hasn't hit over .229 since 2011 and in 2016 he batted just .196 (although with 25 home runs). It was reported this past week that he's open to a part time, DH role. While there's a glut of platoon/DH types currently on the market, including guys like Pedro Alvarez and Chris Carter, it would be surprising if Howard isn't in a camp come Spring Training.
