News: Ruf has arrived early to spring training to continue working on his transition to the outfield, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Ruf, a first baseman through most of his career, has played 140 games in the outfield the past two seasons in the majors and minors. It looks like he will be given a shot to platoon with Grady Sizemore in left field this season. There is some power potential here if Ruf can keep his bat in the lineup on a semi-regular basis.
