Chooch Gets Closer to Return

Halladay Has the Stuffed ChoochCarlos Ruiz will begin a rehab assignment tomorrow with Class A Clearwater.

Ruiz is serving a 25-game suspension for using a banned stimulant. Assuming there are no postponements in the Phillies’ schedule, Ruiz can join the Phillies on Sunday against the Mets at Citi Field.

Phillies catchers have a combined .614 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, which ranked 25th in baseball entering tonight’s games. Ruiz has a career .781 OPS and a career-high .935 OPS last season.


Is it possible that Chooch can possibly bat higher up in the lineup and have Revere down in the 8 hole causing problems on the bases as the Phils play small ball at the bottom of the lineup?

Man I wish they would do a giveaway for those Chooch pillows….
