Phillies place Ruiz on DL, call up Marson

Phillies call up Lou Marson from the IronPigs after Carlos Ruiz lands on DL

Lou Marson has been called up to the Philadelphia Phillies to replace catcher Carlos Ruiz, who suffered a right oblique strain on Friday night.

Catcher Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies recalled catcher Lou Marson from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Ruiz, 30, suffered the injury during yesterday's game at Coors Field against the Colorado Rockies. He was removed from the game in the 7th inning. Ruiz was 3-for-11 (.273) with a double so far this season. This is his first stint on the disabled list in his major league career.

Marson, 23, was the Opening Day catcher for Lehigh Valley and went 1-for-4 in his only game this season before being recalled. He was a September call-up for the Phillies last season and went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in his only major league game.
