Philadelphia, PA – Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Phillies activated catcher Carlos Ruiz from the disabled list prior to Wednesday night's game against the San Francisco Giants.
He will catch and bat fifth.
Ruiz had been out for nearly a month with a concussion after being hit in the head by a pitch in a game against the Miami Marlins. He was placed on the seven-day disabled list on June 27 and moved to 15-day DL on July 11.
The 35-year-old was batting .257 with two home runs and 14 RBI in 66 games for the Phillies this season prior to his DL stint.
Philadelphia also recalled pitcher Phillippe Aumont from Triple-A Lehigh Valley after Tuesday's 14-inning loss to the Giants. Aumont is 0-1 in two games for the Phils this season. He has allowed two hits -- both home runs -- and four runs in 1 2/3 innings.
To make room for Ruiz and Aumont on the roster, the Phillies optioned catcher Cameron Rupp to Lehigh Valley and designated pitcher Jeff Manship for assignment.
