Ruf's bat, Hamels' arm lead Phillies past Padres

The Phillies have begun a stretch of five straight games against left-handed pitchers and that could mean some extended playing time for the man fans often clamor to see more of -- Darin Ruf. Ruf got the start at first base on Wednesday night and was the offensive pacesetter in the Phillies’ 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres. He started a four-run rally with a single in the fifth...

Ruf Suffers Oblique Injury, Roster Spot in Doubt?

Not good news for Darin Ruf. The outfielder suffered an oblique injury during BP and will be evaluated tomorrow, according to CSNPhilly.com. Ruf was hitting .217 with two homers and seven RBI this spring and had a very good shot at one of the final bench spots. This clearly will change things as the season begins on March 31 in Texas. I’ve long thought Ruf should be on this roster...

Lunch Break: Darin Ruf playing himself off the Phils

Darin Ruf is hitting .130 this spring and seemingly every time he comes to the plate, he faces an 0-2 or 1-2 count. The man we had such high expectations for has fallen out of favor because of his inability to hit through 10 games, but more so because of his poor defense in left field. Ruben Amaro admitted Wednesday that Ruf will need to improve to make the team. I joined Rhea Hughes...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Ruf’s October

Darin Ruf went south for winter ball in Venezuela, which started last month on the 11th and runs to almost Thanksgiving.  How has he done so far?

Darin Ruf Will Complete 2012 in Reading

Ruf will complete 2012 in Reading says Phils' scouting director Jordan. Photo by: Ian Riccaboni Darin Ruf, age 26, is no longer a traditional prospect. Playing at a level that he is considered too old for, Ruf was expected to put up big numbers for the R-Phils.
