DARIN RUF RUMORS & GOSSIP

And the Phillies starting rightfielder is...

The Phillies officially announced Domonic Brown has been placed on the Disabled List and will not be available for Opening Day. And now the question remains, how can the Phillies possibly replace the player who was quite literally the second-worst player in baseball last season?

Ruf Suffers Oblique Injury, Roster Spot in Doubt?

Not good news for Darin Ruf. The outfielder suffered an oblique injury during BP and will be evaluated tomorrow, according to CSNPhilly.com.
