DARIN RUF RUMORS & GOSSIP

Outfield Shakeup In Near Future As Darin Ruf Is Activated While Sizemore Deadline Looms

The Phillies outfield production has been consistent in 2014. Unfortunately, it has been consistently awful. John Mayberry Jr. (.219 average with .718 OPS), Domonic Brown, (.224 average and .596 OPS) and Tony Gwynn Jr. (.165 average with .499 OPS) have helped make the Phillies one of the worst offenses in...

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...

Darin Ruf's MLB Man Cave Interview

I was searching for something on Darin Ruf, since he's one of the few good things going for the Phillies right now, and I came across this video from last year. He seems like a levelheaded guy and I hope he can continue to improve defensively in the outfield, because the Phils need his bat in the lineup. Perhaps he secures a starting gig for next season, along with Revere and...

The future for the Philadelphia Phillies begins now

Ruf Watches his Drive During April in Lehigh Valley. The Philadelphia Phillies record going into their game Sunday stands at 33-36 and 7 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Braves who are leading the NL East. With this being said, where do the Phillies go from here? Do they continue to play sub .500 baseball, do they make some big time trades by trading the likes of a Cliff Lee, Chase Utley...

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 is ready

The 25th spot on the Philadelphia Phillies will probably go to Darin Ruf, if a corner outfielder is not added.

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? TAL’S HANDY CAPS   WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I published after every battle that was not washed out.  I had many summer-long highlights of puzzle pieces, which were especially important after drubbings and defeats.  Please go to my author...

Phillies give rookie Darin Ruf best silent treatment ever (VIDEO)

The whole “don’t acknowledge your teammate after he hits a big home run” is definitely one of the better baseball pranks of my time.  Usually it’ll last 30 seconds, maybe a minute – long enough for the hitter to come in, put his helmet away, maybe grab a drink and take his seat on the bench. The Phillies took the silent treatment to epic proportions Tuesday night following...

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. But something strange has happened: those big numbers have turned into gigantic numbers and Ruf is now the talk of...
