Seconds after I posted a piece, where MLB.com’s Phillies beat reporter Todd Zolecki told me that we would soon have an answer on Carlos Ruiz’s MRI, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Daily News has our answer.
Ruiz has grade two strain, probably out 3-4 weeks.

Not that Carlos Ruiz was ripping the cover off the ball, but the idea of three to four more weeks or Erik Kratz and Humberto Quintero behind the plate, and at the plate for that matter, scare me. Hurry back Chooch.
