The team is dying for a right-handed bat in the line-up and Ruf, while not tearing it up at AAA could add a spark on the major league line-up.  Last season in 12 big league games, Ruf provided three home runs, Young has hit seven homers in 47 games this season.

Ruf, 26 has just seven home runs in 72 games at Lehigh, but the Phillies need to find out if  what they have sooner then later.
