Anyone have any updates on these two players that were given to the Yankees in exchange for Tony Womack?

Just curious to see how they are doing this year.

Any information, or a link to the information would be appreciated.

Howard is in AA Trenton. .255/.309/.391. He is also 1/7 in stolen bases. Nothing impressive.

Ben Himes is in A+ Tampa. .227/.283/.338. Nothing impressive.

Actually quite bad.

Thanks, doug. I never really had high expectations for Ben Himes. Thought at best he'd be a AAAA player. Howard, on the other hand, I thought had a higher ceiling. Maybe not perennial All-Star, but I thought he could blossom into a decent everyday player. Guess not.

Thanks again for the information.

Remember the tears about not protecting Howard in the Rule 5...then he slipped through. Then we made a sweet trade for him.....
