After seeing Ruf struggle a bit in Spring Training this year, I think it surprised fans because it seemed like this guy would only get better. 

So far in 2013 Spring Training, Ruf is hitting .246, and according to team officials, the main concern was his defense. 

Hopefully this is just a minor setback and he can get back into the majors soon and help the Phillies win ball games.
