LHP J.P. Howell, sent back to St. Petersburg on Wednesday to have his left foot checked by Rays team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Koco Eaton, said the exam showed he has gout.

Howell is expected to rejoin the team tonight in Houston.

Howell said the problem surfaced Monday, but he pushed on, pitching in the first two games of the Rays series with Milwaukee.

They weren’t his best outings, as he surrendered a home run in Monday’s win then allowed a walk, two singles and allowed three runs to score in Tuesday’s loss.
