News: Batting fourth in the Phillies' lineup, Ruiz mashed in Monday's 7-0 blowout of the Dodgers, going 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI, two runs and a walk. Impact: And, just like that, Ruiz's season-long rate numbers look just fine, despite his modest April slump. Monday's four RBI represent his total for the season, but he already has 12 runs, and the Phillies haven't faced many lefties. Ruiz's career-long handedness splits aren't particularly noteworthy, but he's batted either second, third, fourth or sixth against southpaws this season, while typically batting seventh against right-handers.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Ruiz hit third in the order for the second straight game, as Chase Utley continues battling the flu. His two-hit performance brings his average up to .231 on the young season, although he remains without an RBI and was 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position Wednesday. When Utley returns, look for Ruiz to return to the sixth or seventh spot in the order, with the occasional opportunity to bat second against lefties.(RotoWire, )
