News: Manager Ryne Sandberg confirmed Thursday that Ruf would be used in a platoon with Ryan Howard at first base, CSN Philly reports. "I look at it as a scenario where against some left-handed pitchers it could be a platoon situation going forward, depending on the numbers," Sandberg said. Impact: Ruf got a start against righty Tim Hudson on Thursday, but Sandberg said that was because he wanted to see Ruf play a couple games in a row. The Phillies will face lefties on Friday and Sunday, which could result in a couple of starts for Ruf this weekend.(RotoWire, )

News: Ruf was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday. Impact: Wrist inflammation sent John Mayberry to the DL, and Ruf will be up to take his spot on the active roster. The 27-year-old Ruf just recently returned to action at Lehigh Valley after missing more than a month with a small fracture in his wrist as well as a knee laceration, and he's hit just .265/.308/.373 with one homer in 23 games with the affiliate this season, so it seems likely he'll be deployed primarily as a bench bat in the short term.(RotoWire, )
