Ruf Recalled, Replaces Lee on Roster

Let’s all welcome back Darin Ruf. He has been recalled to the Phillies as the team places Cliff Lee on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow strain.

Ruf, activated from the DL last week, hit .316 with a home run and two RBI for the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs. While Ruf should help the bench, it does not fill the void left in the rotation.┬áThat means another move is on it’s way.

The likely candidate to get the start in Lee’s spot is David Buchanan. He’s 5-1 with a 3.98 ERA at Lehigh Valley this year and is scheduled to make his next start this weekend.
