The Phillies have activated catcher Carlos Ruiz from the disabled list just a day after catcher Brian Schneider was sent to the DL.
Ruiz was placed on the DL on May 8 with a lower back strain, but played five innings with the Cleawater Threshers on Thursday night. He will be active for Friday night's game against the Braves. In 21 games, Ruiz is batting .226, with two home runs and nine RBIs.
