Catcher Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 7-day disabled list Friday night with concussion symptoms after being hit by a pitch from Miami's A.J. Ramos in the 11th inning Thursday.

Ruiz remained in the game during the Phillies' 14-inning win over the Marlins, but he was not in manager Ryne Sandberg's starting lineup Friday. Sandberg said Ruiz's condition was being monitored, but indicated that he was all right earlier in the day.

The Phillies, however, sent out a release later in the day about Ruiz's condition. HIs spot on the roster was taken by Koyie HIll, a veteran catcher who was hitting .240 with three home runs and 17 RBIs at triple-A Lehigh Valley this season. HIll, 35,has played in 331 big-league games with four different teams and has a career .206 average.

With Ruiz and backup Will Nieves both on the disabled list, rookie Cameron Rupp will be the starting catcher for at least the next week.
