Carlos Ruiz will miss 4-6 weeks with a plantar fascitis and a partial tear in his his left foot. Ruiz will be replaced by Hector Luna who is being recalled from Leigh Valley.
This season might be one of Chooch’s best seasons, he is 4th in the National League in hitting with a .334 average, 6th in the NL with a .959 OPS. He was likely a top-5 MVP candidate for his work in the box and behind the plate. It is uncertain what Chooch will contribute with one of the worst Phillies baseball seasons in a long time.
