• Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said during Thursday's broadcast that Triple-A outfielder Darin Ruf has a fractured left wrist, although it does not change the timetable for his return. The Phillies never previously offered a timetable, although it seems to be weeks away.

• Class A Advanced Clearwater announced it had released outfielder Anthony Hewitt, who was the organization's first-round pick in the 2008 First-Year Player Draft. He had a .223/.264/.370 line over seven seasons in the organization. He had just been demoted to Clearwater after hitting .140 in 103 plate appearances with Double-A Reading.
