Howard is day-to-day after getting a cortisone shot in his sore left knee.

The Phillies earned a comeback victory Sunday, thanks to the heroics of Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz. On Monday, the focus was more grim as the team awaited the MRI results of Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz.

Ruiz was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. He’s expected to miss three to four weeks after being placed on the 15-day disabled list. Howard received a cortisone shot and remains listed day-to-day. Michael Young filled in for Howard yesterday for a second straight game. After Sunday’s game, Howard admitted that he has been dealing with a sore left knee since spring training.

“If he doesn’t respond to the treatment we’ve provided so far, you’ve got to re-evaluate what you’re doing,” trainer Scott Sheridan told reporters. “At no point are we going to put Ryan out there to risk it.”
Adams recovering from back spasms

Phillies setup man Mike Adams has been placed on the 15-day DL.

The move is retroactive and the Phils could bring him back Sunday, if he’s feeling better. Adams hasn’t pitched since May 10 while battling back spasms. Adams plans to throw off a mound Thursday. He is targeting a Monday return.

Adams is 1-3 with a 3.00 ERA this season in 17 appearances.
