Three cases of Carlos Ruiz bobbleheads were placed next to the catcher's locker Tuesday. He could not play on his day, but Ruiz is optimistic about a return within two weeks from his strained right hamstring.

He is targeting a return for June 17, when the Phillies arrive home after a long road trip. Ruiz ran Monday and took swings in the cage Tuesday for the first time.

"It feels good," Ruiz said. "I feel real close."

He will accompany the team to Milwaukee and could head to either double-A Reading or triple-A Lehigh Valley for a rehab assignment from there. 

>>> Pitching coach Rich Dubee said he did not know whether John Lannan (strained left knee) would pitch in an extended spring training game or begin his official minor-league rehab assignment Thursday. As it stands, it appears Lannan will require more than the original eight weeks prescribed April 18 for his recovery.

>>> Roy Halladay was scheduled to see Michael Ciccotti, the team's physician. Halladay will provide an update Wednesday on his recovery from shoulder surgery.
