Darin Ruf News Archive
Ruf is starting in left field Wednesday and batting sixth, CSN Philly reports.
Ruf, who has played sporadically of late, said he is doing what he can to be ready to produce when he gets an opportunity, CSN Philly reports. "I'm just doing what other guys do in my position," he said. "I'm getting in the cage as much as possible and getting in the weight room to keep my body fresh. Just swinging the bat in BP and trying to keep my swing as consistent as possible."
Ruf is no longer being used in a platoon with Ryan Howard at first base, the Phillies' official site reports.
Ruf was used as a pinch hitter Saturday and stayed in the game to play third base.
