Darin Ruf continues to rehab with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but Sandberg said the Phillies were in no rush to activate the first baseman/outfielder. He began the season on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique.

"I think a guy in his case, he'll show when he's ready, and whenever that might be, I don't think there's any rush," Sandberg said. "He'll dictate and he'll be looked at when people think he's ready to compete at this level."

Ruf played in his second rehab game with the IronPigs on Tuesday. He previously appeared in three games with Class-A Advanced Clearwater.

• Sandberg said he had been recovering from food poisoning since Sunday, adding that it may have come from a burger he ate in the clubhouse at Citi Field in New York. The manager estimated that he had lost six pounds.

"A couple of coaches took a bite, and then they threw it away, they looked at it, but I was rushing so I ate the whole thing," the manager said.
