Ruf has Grade 1-2 Oblique Strain, Out 4-6 Weeks



The nightmare continues. The Phillies have announced that in addition to a serious infection for Freddy Galvis, Darin Ruf will now miss 4-6 weeks with a Grade 1-2 oblique strain.

Ruf said he’d felt something about a week ago yet played through it, then felt a grab during batting practice that was bad enough to warrant an MRI. The test revealed a significant strain and just like that, the Phillies nightmare grew more nightmarish.

In line to be one of the Phillies top bench bats, Ruf will be sidelined opening a door for possibly Bobby Abreu, Tony Gwynn, or another outfielder.
