As reported by Phillies.com:

Former MVP Ryan Howard has been traded today by the club to the  Texas Rangers for RHPs Brennan Garr (expected to start for AA Reading), Thomas Diamond (also expected to start for AA Reading), and Omar Poveda (expected to start for High A Clearwater), LHP Zach Phillips (expected to start at Low A Lakewood), and SS Joaquin Arias (expected to take Howard’s place on the major league roster).  Reportedly, the club has considered Howard to be “overpaid for his value to [the team],” and wants his “cancerous” attitude out of the clubhouse.  When asked who would start at first base in his place, Manager Charlie Manuel replied “Most likely Helms, Feliz, or maybe even Burrell.  The season is still early, and we will get that settled when the time is right.” Later asked what he thought of the trade, Manuel said “I believe Gillick knows what he is doing, and this club is headed in the right direction with this move.”  Also traded today was starting pitcher Adam Eaton, who was sent to the San Francisco Giants for a player to be named later, or cash.”
