Phillies | Darin Ruf struggling

Philadelphia Phillies OF Darin Ruf struck out three times in an exhibition game against the Dominican Republic Tuesday, March 5, and he also continued to struggle with his defense in the outfield. Ruf is currently 3-for-23 with one extra-base hit this spring. "That's probably got something to do with his hitting," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's trying too hard right now and things are not going good for him. He'll be all right. He is going to get some more hits. He's fine. He's not going to go his whole life with all collars." OFs John Mayberry Jr. and Laynce Nix are an alternative to Ruf in left field to start the season.
