 CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Darin Ruf says he's making progress in his transition to left field and manager Charlie Manuel expects the young slugger to contribute to the Philadelphia Phillies this season.
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.''
