Former Phillies slugger Ryan Howard is joining ESPN as a baseball analyst. The three time All Star will make appearances on a number of shows to talk about Major League Baseball including Get Up! and SportsCenter.
“I’m very excited to join ESPN’s baseball coverage and contribute across their various platforms,” Howard said in a press release. “Can’t wait to get started next month.”
The addition of Ryan Howard comes just a month after it was revealed that ESPN would not be returning a daily baseball show to its weekday schedule. It was noted in the press release that Howard will make appearances on the current incarnation of Baseball Tonight.
