Philadelphia Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz completed his 25-game suspension for a positive drug test and was activated from the restricted list on Sunday.
Ruiz, 34, had tested positive for an amphetamine after a career year in 2012 when he hit .325 with 16 home runs and 68 RBI in 114 games. He was in the lineup and batted fifth on Sunday for the Phillies' game against the New York Mets. He went 1-for-4. To make room for Ruiz on the 25-man roster, the Phillies designated catcher Humberto Quintero for assignment. ---The Chicago White Sox placed right-hander Gavin Floyd on 15-day disabled list with a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow.
