  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Begins rehab assignment

    Ruf (knee) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Nashville, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Ruf has been sidelined since early June due to a non-displaced fracture in his right kneecap, so he'll probably need several rehab games to get back up to speed. The 37-year-old holds a weak .224/.333/.286 batting line in 57 major-league plate appearances this season between San Francisco and Milwaukee.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Recovering from broken kneecap

    Ruf, whom the Brewers transferred to the 60-day injured list earlier Monday, has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of his patella in addition to a deep laceration in his right knee, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Ruf was placed on the 10-day IL on Saturday after he was revealed to be dealing with only the deep laceration, but the fractured kneecap explains why the Brewers wasted little time in shifting him to the 60-day IL. Though he's expected to avoid surgery since the fracture is non-displaced, Ruf is still projected to require 6-to-8 weeks of recovery time. He suffered the injury last Friday when he collided with the tarp while chasing after a pop-up.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Moved to 60-day IL

    The Brewers transferred Ruf (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.

    The right knee laceration Ruf sustained last Friday when he collided with the tarp evidently must have been a serious one. As a result of his move to the 60-day IL, Ruf won't be eligible for activation until early August.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Battling knee laceration

    Ruf was pulled from the Brewers' game against Cincinnati on Friday due to a right knee laceration, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Ruf came up bleeding after colliding with the tarp while chasing a foul ball. It's not yet clear how much time he might miss due to the injury.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Pulled from game early

    Ruf was pulled from Friday's game against the Reds with an apparent injury, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Ruf ran into the tarp while chasing a foul ball and came up bleeding from his leg. He should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Lands on injured list

    The Brewers placed Ruf on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right knee laceration.

    Ruf had to be pulled from Friday's game against Cincinnati after colliding with the tarp while chasing a foul ball, and apparently the damage was significant enough to warrant him being shut down for 10 days. Jon Singleton was selected from Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Out of lineup Wednesday

    Ruf is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

    Ruf has seen a good amount of playing time since joining the Brewers in mid-May, even taking some turns at leadoff, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday versus the Jays and right-hander Alek Manoah. William Contreras is filling the DH role with Victor Caratini playing catcher.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: In leadoff spot Tuesday

    Ruf is serving as the Brewers' designated hitter and batting leadoff Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

    Ruf could be in for an uptick in playing time with Jesse Winker landing on the injured list Tuesday due to a cervical strain. The 36-year-old got a turn at leadoff last Friday versus the Giants and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

  • Brewers' Darin Ruf: Signed to active roster

    Ruf signed a one-year contract with the Brewers on Monday.

    Milwaukee opened up a spot for Ruf on the 26-man active roster by placing Luke Voit (neck) on the 10-day injured list. While Voit is on the shelf, Ruf should assume his duties as a short-side platoon option at first base or designated hitter. Ruf has a career .886 OPS versus left-handed pitching, although he hasn't been as effective against southpaws the last two seasons.

  • Darin Ruf: Elects free agency

    Ruf cleared waivers and elected free agency Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Ruf declined his assignment to Triple-A Sacramento and is now free to sign with another club. The 36-year-old hit .261 with two doubles, a run scored and three RBI with the Giants before being designated for assignment after coming off the injured list May 9. A team looking for a bench bat that can handle left-handed pitching could show interest in Ruf's services.
