Phillies placed C Carlos Ruiz on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
According to MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki, an MRI revealed a “partial tear,” and Ruiz is expected to miss four to six weeks. He won’t be a candidate to return when first eligible, and the injury could put his season in question. Brian Schneider will assume the majority of his at-bats, with Erik Kratz seeing semi-regular starts. Hector Luna was recalled in a corresponding move.
