News: Ruf (oblique) has begun taking swings off a tee, the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Impact: GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said he was unsure when Ruf would be ready to start an official rehab assignment. It shouldn't be far off, provided there are no setbacks to his strained oblique.(RotoWire, )

News: Phillies GM Ruben Amaro hopes Ruf (oblique) will begin baseball activities early next week, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Impact: Ruf will almost certainly require either a rehab assignment or a stint at extended spring training, if not both. A late April return looks like his best-case scenario, with early-to-mid May the more likely target. Once healthy, Ruf will likely be the top bat on the Philadelphia bench, and he should see a decent amount of playing time at first base and the corner infield spots. When the Phillies play in an American League park, he'll likely be a regular lineup presence.(RotoWire, )
