News: 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." Impact: Ruf has made consecutive starts just once since July 25. He has hit .231/.382/.385 with a home run since he was recalled from the minors on July 22 and will continue to find playing time hard to come by in the Phillies' crowded outfield.(RotoWire, )
