Ruf led the minor leagues with 38 homers last season and earned the nickname ``Babe'' in the process. He moved from first base because that's Ryan Howard's spot in Philadelphia.
Ruf's adjustment to a new position is taking longer than hoped and it seems he's ticketed to start the season in Triple-A. He says he's ``come a long way'' and continues taking extra fielding drills in spring training.
Manuel says Ruf ``works hard and he wants to do it and somewhere along the line, he's going to help us because he can hit.''
