Is Ruf Ready?

The Phillies are not known for prospects in their minor league system outside of pitchers. However, Darin Ruf at AA is having a great season. He’s not young at 26 (he stayed in college for 4 years) but he may hit 30 home runs this year to go along with a .300 batting average. He plays first base (Howard isn’t going anywhere), but has been playing a little left field this year, too. There is talk of calling him up in September. So we shal see.
