26-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Darin Ruf is awaiting his next chance with the Phillies. He played in 12 games for the Phillies last year in his first taste of the majors and he was 11 for 33 (.333 avg, 1.079 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers and 10 RBIs. Ruf has played in 33 games in AAA-ball for the Phillies so far this year and he is 35 for 123 (.285 avg, .845 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 5 homers, 21 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Ruf has now played in 491 games in his first five years in the majors and he is 533 of 1,755 (.304 avg, .902 OPS) with 275 runs scored, 72 homers, 304 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. He came into this season as the Phillies’ #9 prospect according to Baseball America. I think Ruf will make it back to Philly at some point in 2013.
