  • Mets' Darin Ruf: Back for wild-card round

    Ruf (neck) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday and is on the roster for the Mets' NL Wild Card Series against the Padres, Deesha Thosar of Fox Sports reports. Ruf spent the final and a half of the season on the shelf with a neck strain, but he's back with the team for the start of the playoffs. The 36-year-old had a .152/.216/.197 slash line in 29 games for the Mets and will provide depth at first base and the corner outfield.

  • Mets' Darin Ruf: Could return this weekend

    Manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that Ruf (neck) will be an option for this weekend's NL Wild Card Series against the Padres, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. Ruf has been sidelined for the last week due to a neck strain, but he's eligible to be reinstated from the injured list ahead of Friday's series opener against San Diego. Whether he's added to the Mets' postseason roster remains to be seen, but it's at least encouraging that the 36-year-old will be in the mix to return.

  • Mets' Darin Ruf: Lands on 10-day IL

    Ruf was placed on the 10-day injured list with a neck strain Friday, retroactive to Sept. 27. Ruf has had limited playing time over the last few weeks, but he's apparently been dealing with a neck injury that has kept him off the field recently. Although the move was backdated, the 36-year-old will be forced to miss the rest of the regular season. It's not yet clear whether he'll be healthy in time for the postseason.

  • Mets' Darin Ruf: Draws start versus lefty

    Ruf will serve as the Mets' designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. The Dodgers are bringing a lefty (Tyler Anderson) from the second straight day, so the righty-hitting Ruf will pick up another start at the expense of platoon mate Daniel Vogelbach. Since being acquired from the Giants on Aug. 2, Ruf has hit .206 with zero home runs, three doubles, six RBI and five runs in 15 games.

  • Mets' Darin Ruf: Sent to Mets on Tuesday

    The Mets acquired Ruf from the Giants on Tuesday in exchange for designated hitter J.D. Davis and minor-league pitchers Thomas Szapucki, Carson Seymour and Nick Zwack, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Ruf is expected to provide an upgrade over Davis as the right-handed-hitting option in a platoon at DH with the lefty-hitting Daniel Vogelbach or Dominic Smith (ankle). The 36-year-old Ruf owns an .886 OPS versus southpaws on the season.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Back on bench versus righty

    Ruf is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Ruf went 2-for-14 with a home run and three walks while starting in each of the past five games, but he benefited from the Giants opposing four left-handed pitchers during that stretch. Right-hander Zac Gallen is on the bump for the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, and Ruf now appears likely to settle into a short-side platoon role at either first base, left field or designated hitter moving forward.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Homers in Sunday's loss

    Ruf went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Sunday's 7-4 loss to the Dodgers. Ruf had the Giants' biggest hit of the game, a game-tying, two-run homer off Clayton Kershaw in the fifth inning. It's been boom or bust for Ruf lately, as his last four hits have all been homers. The 35-year-old is up to 11 long balls, 38 RBI, a career-high 44 runs scored and two stolen bases through 296 plate appearances. He's maintained a .225/.334/.391 slash line, and it appears he'll continue to share playing time at first base and designated hitter with Brandon Belt and LaMonte Wade.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Slugs first career grand slam

    Ruf went 1-for-3 with a grand slam in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers. LaMonte Wade began the game as San Francisco's designated hitter and leadoff man, but Ruf came in to replace him during an at-bat in the sixth inning. That plate appearance resulted in a strikeout, but Ruf made his mark in his following trip to the plate, slugging a game-tying grand slam to center field. The grand slam was the first of his career, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. Ruf has now homered in three consecutive contests, pushing his total to 10 on the season.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Homers in consecutive contests

    Ruf went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Brewers. Ruf opened the scoring in the sixth inning with a blast off Brewers starter Eric Lauer. This was Ruf's second straight game with a homer, and he's up to nine long balls on the year. The 35-year-old has hit safely in nine of 15 games in July, though he hasn't record a multi-hit effort since June 23. He's slashing .227/.336/.376 with 32 RBI, 41 runs scored and two stolen bases through 283 plate appearances. Ruf should continue to work his way into the lineup regularly versus southpaws.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Swats solo shot

    Ruf went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-5 win over the Brewers. Ruf's ninth-inning blast got the Giants within a run. He's mostly been limited to a timeshare role at first base and in the outfield lately, though he's hit safely in eight of 14 games in July. The 35-year-old is up to a .227/.337/.366 slash line with eight homers, 31 RBI, 40 runs scored and two stolen bases through 279 plate appearances. He should continue to play regularly versus left-handed pitchers.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Takes seat Wednesday

    Ruf isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Ruf has started mainly against left-handed pitchers recently and will be out of the lineup for the fifth time in the last 10 games since right-hander Zac Gallen is on the mound for Arizona. Brandon Belt is serving as the designated hitter while LaMonte Wade starts at first base.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Not starting Monday

    Ruf isn't starting Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Ruf went 1-for-5 with a run and two strikeouts during Sunday's series finale against the Padres, and he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Brandon Belt is serving as the designated hitter while Luis Gonzalez enters the lineup in right field.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Excluded from Thursday's lineup

    Ruf isn't starting Thursday against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Ruf will be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game after he went 4-for-11 with a homer, two doubles, four RBI and two runs over his last five contests. Tommy La Stella is serving as the designated hitter while David Villar starts at third base.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Swats big pinch-hit homer

    Ruf hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat during Wednesday's 7-5 win against Arizona. With the Giants trailing by two in the eighth inning, Ruf was brought in to pinch hit for Lamonte Wade. The former smashed a 429-foot, two-run shot to left field to tie the game. Ruf didn't remain in the contest to play defense, but his mark was already made, and San Francisco ultimately pulled out the win. Ruf's homer was his first since June 22 and his seventh of the campaign. He slugged a career-high 16 long balls over 262 at-bats last season.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Gets rare start versus righty

    Ruf will serve as the Giants' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Sunday's game against the White Sox, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Since both Brandon Belt and LaMonte Wade returned from the injured list in June, Ruf has faded into a short-side platoon role, but he'll get a look in the lineup versus a right-handed starting pitcher (Lucas Giolito) in the series finale. Ruf will be filling in as the Giants' DH in place of the lefty-hitting Tommy La Stella, who looks to be receiving some routine maintenance.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Making fifth straight start

    Ruf will serve as the Giants' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Sunday's game against the Reds, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. With Brandon Crawford (knee) joining LaMonte Wade (knee) and Luis Gonzalez (back) on the injured list Sunday, Ruf appears to be one of the beneficiaries of added playing time. He'll pick up his fifth consecutive start Sunday after going 4-for-16 with a home run, three runs and two RBI across his previous four contests.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Swats sixth homer

    Ruf went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday. Ruf gave the Giants an early 2-0 lead with his fourth-inning solo shot, and he scored another run after reaching on a hit by pitch in the ninth. The veteran has mostly struggled this season, posting a .225/.345/.358 slash line through 223 plate appearances. He's hitting .262 against lefty pitchers but only .205 against right-handers.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Back on bench in Belt's return

    Ruf is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Ruf had started each of the Giants' last seven games at first base and went 6-for-25 with two home runs and two doubles over that stretch, but he'll retreat to the bench Wednesday with Brandon Belt making his return to the lineup after being activated from the 10-day injured list earlier this week. Belt is serving as a designated hitter Wednesday but should eventually settle back in as a full-time first baseman, which will likely result in the righty-hitting Ruf seeing most of his starts against left-handed pitching moving forward.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Lifts pair of homers

    Ruf went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Dodgers. Ruf's contributions Friday were enough to lift the Giants to the win. He took starter Walker Buehler deep in the fourth inning and tacked on another homer in the eighth off David Price. Ruf is now 4-for-15 in four games since returning from the bereavement list. The 35-year-old is up to a .226/.344/.354 slash line with five homers, 20 RBI, 29 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases in 50 contests. He's made three straight starts at first base, so Ruf should be in line for a regular role until Brandon Belt (knee) returns from the injured list.

  • Giants' Darin Ruf: Back from bereavement list

    Ruf (personal) was activated from the bereavement list Tuesday. Ruf was away from the team for the past week following the death of his father, but he's now back with the club. The 35-year-old won't immediately rejoin the starting lineup, with Wilmer Flores and Tommy La Stella starting at first base and designated hitter, respectively.
