The Phillies have designated 31-year old righty swinging catcher Dane Sardinha. Sardinha played in 13 games for the Phillies this year and he was 8 of 39 (.205 avg, .712 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 3 homers and 8 RBIs. The Phillies will replace him on the roster with Carlos Ruiz who is getting activated from the D.L. Ruiz has played in 51 games for the Phillies this year and he is 42 of 153 (.275 avg, .764 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 2 homers and 13 RBIs. It’s good to have Ruiz back in action and I feel confident that Sardinha will accept a minor league assignment if he clears waivers.
