PITTSBURGH -- First baseman-outfielder Darin Ruf was activated off the disabled list today by Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Ruf broke his left wrist while playing for the IronPigs on June 2. He had been on a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Phillies for the past week.

Ruf batted .130 with a .437 OPS in 23 at-bats for the GFC Phillies.

Earlier this year for the Phillies, Ruf had one hit (a home run) in 10 at-bats.
