Phillies | Carlos Ruiz may be shut down

Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said C Carlos Ruiz (foot) may be shut down for the rest of the season as a precautionary measure. "It's a risk-reward assessment," Amaro said. "I know he wants to play. I know he was upset when it happened. I know he's worked hard to be in the position to be activated. But we'll see." Ruiz will be unable to go on a rehab assignment because the organization's minor league affiliates will have concluded their seasons by the time he is ready for game action.
