Phillies | Darin Ruf could be the real deal

The Philadelphia Phillies plan on recalling 1B Darin Ruf up to audition him in left field in the final few weeks of the season. "He might be Matt Holliday. … I saw him eight or nine games. And I saw him hit everything. I saw him take a 97 mph heater from Zack Wheeler off the wall for a double. I saw him hit a changeup for a home run. I saw him barrel up junk-ballers, guys who throw hard and everything in between. And defensively, I actually thought he was better in the outfield than he was at first base. He's an interesting guy," one scout said.
