Rockies sign former NL MVP Ryan Howard to minor league contract

The Colorado Rockies have agreed to terms on a Minor League contract with former National League MVP and Rookie of the Year, Ryan Howard.

The 37-year-old hit.196 last season over 112 games for the Phillies but did manage to smack 25 home runs.

The Rockies' announcement didn't specify which level of the minors Howard would start with, but their social media account did take the chance to defend the decision to bring in Howard, who hit.184 with one home run, 11 strikeouts, and two walks in 42 plate appearances with the Gwinnett Braves. The team bought out his contract for $10 million. One season later, he was named as the league's Most Valuable Player, logging 58 homers and 149 RBI while totaling 383 total bases. He is second on the Phillies' career home run list with 382 and third in RBIs with 1,194. He led the league in home runs in both 2006 and 2008, and has almost 400 homers (382 to be exact) in his 13-year career.

A three-time All-Star and former National League MVP, Howard once ranked among the game's premier power hitters during a prime that stretched from 2006-2011.
