Ryan Howard fell a double short of the cycle but went 4-for-5 with a triple, a home run, three RBI and three runs scored against the Rockies on Sunday.
Howard's four-hit performance was just the second multi-hit game of the season for the big lefty, and just his first since Opening Day. He is currently sporting a .262 average with four home runs and 10 RBI, but his production has been sporadic at best. With that said, those in head-to-head leagues will want to play the matchups when using Howard in your starting lineup, because the way he is performing could actually hurt you more then help you in the early going.

Blue Jays prospect Miguel Castro left Friday's game with a right hand issue.
Castro officially left the game with forearm tightness, which does not sound good at all. As we've seen too many times over the past couple of seasons, forearm tightness generally leads to Tommy John surgery. Castro showed a lot of promise with the Blue Jays early this season, stepping in as closer for a couple weeks, but the 20-year old struggled with command, leading to his demotion.
