Ruiz likely to return from DL on Saturday
PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz is expected to rejoin the club on Saturday, manager Charlie Manuel said. Ruiz will play a rehab game for Class A Lakewood on Friday as the designated hitter.
Ruiz has been on the disabled list with a concussion he suffered on June 18 after being hit in the head by a broken bat by Minnesota's Jason Kubel. He has played in two Minor League rehab games so far, going 2-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI on Thursday.
"I like the two doubles," Manuel said. "RBIs are always good."
