07:13 AM ET 05.28 | Chase Utley, Carlos Ruiz and Roy Halladay have all been placed on the DL this month. Along with Ryan Howard, they were the three injured players that defined a lost 2012 season that saw the Phils finished with a non-winning record for the first time since 2002. Howard hasn't joined the trio of injured Phils on the DL, but he has sat out of the starting lineup three times in the last seven games. His left knee pain, is at best, troubling. ... Q: Are you fearful this is going to go on all year? Howard: Right now I'm just looking at it day to day. Sometimes it's a little more, sometimes it's a little less. Obviously that's going to be something. Right now I'm looking at it day to day, and trying to run with the good days.
