The Phillies have placed starting catcher Carlos Ruiz on the 15-day disabled list with concussion like symptoms. Ruiz has played in 51 games this season for the Phillies and he is 42 of 153 (.275 avg, .764 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 2 homers and 13 RBIs. 33-year old Brian Schneider and 31-year old Dane Sardinha will have to hold down the fort until Ruiz returns to action. Schneider will get most of the work. He has played in 17 games this season for the Phillies and he is 11 of 44 (.250 avg, .648 OPS) with 5 runs scored and 2 RBIs. Dane Sardinha played in 38 games in AAA-ball this season and he was 32 of 126 (.254 avg, .678 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 4 homers and 20 RBIs. But he has struggled mightily with a bat in his hands in the majors. He has played in 31 games in his major league career and he is 10 of 80 (.125 avg, .325 OPS) with 3 runs scored and 6 RBIs. The Phillies have activated starting shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the D.L. to replace Ruiz on the active roster. Rollins has played in 12 games for the Phillies this year and he is 14 of 41 (.341 avg, 1.096 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 2 homers, 7 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The offense will get a nice boost if Rollins can stay healthy this time around.
