And now your daily Phillies injury report:
Catcher Carlos Ruiz met with concussion specialist Michael Collins in Pittsburgh and was cleared to begin a rehab assignment for triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Ruiz, who has been on the disabled list since June 19 with a concussion after being hit by a broken bat, will play between seven and nine innings for the IronPigs.
Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said it's still possible Ruiz could return before the All-Star break.
Third baseman Placido Polanco (left triceps tendinitis) can resume baseball activities on Saturday. The hope, Amaro said, is to have Polanco back in about two weeks from now.
