    • Phillies' Darin Ruf: Found power stroke in minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ruf went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. Ruf is hitting .256/.292/.628 with five home runs in 43 at-bats since being sent back to minors earlier this month. Tommy Joseph has gotten off to a solid start in the majors, so it may be a while before Ruf gets another opportunity with the Phils.

    • Phillies' Darin Ruf: Optioned to Triple-A on Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ruf was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. Ruf had been getting somewhat consistent playing time on the short side of a platoon at first base with Ryan Howard, but he did nothing to warrant a spot on the roster, batting a mere .158 with three RBI on the season. He'll head to the minors to try and get back on track at the plate. The Phillies called up first baseman Tommy Joseph from Triple-A to take his spot on the roster.

    • Phillies' Darin Ruf: Headed back to Triple-A?
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ruf could be sent to Triple-A if the Phillies opt to promote Tommy Joseph from the minors soon, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports. Manager Pete Mackanin confirmed Wednesday that the Phillies have discussed promoting Joseph. He would take Ruf's spot in a platoon at first base with Ryan Howard. Ruf, who has an option left, has hit just .161/.210/.196 this season and has yet to homer. Perhaps some time in the minors with consistent playing time will get his bat going again.

    • Phillies' Darin Ruf: Out of the lineup Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Ruf is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers. Ruf will sit on Sunday while Emmanuel Burriss will start in left field and bat seventh. Ruf started the last two games against Milwaukee in left field and produced two hits in six at bats.

    • Manager Pete Mackanin said Ruf might play the entire series against the Brewers this weekend, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports. Peter Bourjos is expected to sit this weekend while he works on his approach at the plate. Ruf got the start in left field Friday and went 1-for-4 with a RBI. The Phillies are not scheduled to see a lefty this weekend, so Ruf should see two more starts in left field. If he has some success against righties, it could lead to additional playing time.
