The thing with Ruf is he's 27 years old. He's not a prospect. The thing I think the Phils are holding out hope for is that he becomes Jayson Werth, which doesn't really happen all that often. There's a lot more John Mayberry Jr's than there are Jayson Werth's.
That said his numbers in the major's are better than most of his numbers in the minors, and comparable to his one big year down there. The question is whether he turned the corner at 25-26 and this is what he is now, or if its the fact that he was 25 in A ball and 26 in AA that made him appear better than he was.
We'll have to wait and see what happens as he gets more AB's.
