Ruiz to begin rehab assignment

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz is eligible to return on Sunday from his 25-game suspension for amphetamine use, but he will have a brief minor league rehab assignment first.

Ruiz will begin his rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Clearwater, the team announced.

He was hit in the left wrist with a pitch on Friday during an extended spring training game, but reported he is ready to play after a second set of X-rays were examined.

Ruiz hit .324 with 16 homers last season.
