NEW YORK -- The Phillies have issued a new lineup for today’s game at Citi Field against the New York Mets. Catcher Carlos Ruiz, originally slated to hit cleanup, has been pulled due to right hamstring tightness.

“We’re just being cautious with it,” said Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock. “(Brian) Schneider will catch and it’s a day to day thing.”

Proefrock said he thought Ruiz hurt his hamstring during Sunday’s 8-3 loss in St. Louis

“He stayed in (the game) and we took look this morning and decided to take him out of the lineup and give him another day off,” Proefrock said.
