Ruiz injured the hamstring running the bases in the second inning Sunday in a 3-2 victory over the Reds at Citizens Bank Park. He had hit .235 (12-for-51) with two doubles and two RBIs in 16 games after missing the first 25 games of the season because of a suspension for using a banned stimulant, although he had hit .325 (10-for-31) in his previous 10 games.
Phils catchers have a .582 on-base-plus-slugging percentage this season, which ranks 27th in baseball. The club was counting on Ruiz to boost that position upon his contract, but he lasted less than a month before injury sidelined him.
"We were comfortable with the [catching] situation we had to start the season," Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said. "[Humberto Quintero] did a good job for us. I think we're comfortable with what we have. We're not going to stop looking, but I don't think we're actively out there pursuing anything. But you keep your eyes and ears open."
