Howard's rehab complete

By Tim McManus

Ryan Howard went 0-for-3 on Thursday in his final rehab assignment with the Class-A Lakewood BlueClaws.

Howard flew out, walked, struck out and hit into a double play as Lakewood fell to the Hagerstown Suns, 8-6. That's in sharp contrast to Wednesday's performance, when the slugger hit a three-run homer, doubled and finished with four RBI.

The first baseman is expected to rejoin the big-league club in Atlanta on Friday, and will likely be activated from the disabled list at that time.

Howard drew well over 16,000 fans during his two-day rehab stint in Lakewood.
