CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard missed workouts again on Wednesday, after a procedure Monday to remove an infection around his surgically repaired Achilles tendon.
Howard, who had the original surgery in October, took part in workouts when camp opened, but stopped after batting practice Saturday. He's been held out of all baseball activities since, and left the team on Monday to see Dr. Mark Myerson in Baltimore.
Phillies head athletic trainer Scott Sheridan could not give an accurate timetable for when he expects Howard to resume his rehabilitation.
"I truly don't know that answer," he said.
