Ruiz was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

Ruiz will take the roster spot of Freddie Freeman (wrist), who was recently placed on the disabled list. This will be Ruiz's second stint with the Braves, as he appeared in five games with the big club in 2016. The 22-year-old was slashing .262/.305/.447 across 37 games with Gwinnett before being promoted. While he's batting eighth and starting at third base Thursday against the Blue Jays, he could also see some starts at first base with Freeman out for at least 10 weeks.
