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

Phillies Injury Update: Darin Ruf placed on DL at Triple-A

The Philadelphia Phillies have struggled to a 24-32 record this season and have been shut out seven times in their last 27 games. Although the pitching has been an issue at 24th in the league in ERA, the offense has been even more disappointing.

After Being Sent To AAA Since The Phillies OF Was Too Good, Darin Ruf Injured

The Phillies sent outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf to AAA the other day, since they were not willing to use him and since their putrid team needed Phillippe Aumont more than they needed a power hitting right-handed outfielder/first baseman.

Ruf Recalled, Replaces Lee on Roster

Let’s all welcome back Darin Ruf. He has been recalled to the Phillies as the team places Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow strain. Ruf, activated from the DL last week, hit .316 with a home run and two RBI for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. While Ruf should help the bench, it does not fill the void left in the rotation. That means another move is on it’s way...

Phillies activate Darin Ruf, send him to Triple-A

The Philadelphia Phillies have struggled to a 17-21 start, last in the National League East.  One of the problems is an offense that ranks 27th in the league in runs scored. They have gotten very little production off the bench, particularly from the right side of the plate. Hopes are that Darin Ruf will be able to provide some punch off the bench, but he will need some time at...
