Ruf was 10-for-66 for the Mets after being acquired from the Giants in 2022, and went 5-for-30 with 9 strikeouts this spring
I would've put Ruf on the IL and sent him upstate to rehab his wrist and show if he's got anything left.
I'm not a Pham phan, but I hope he'll surprise me.
Might as well just let the pitchers hit right now. What's Bartolo up to?
The trade was a lopsided dud, but at least someone is smart enough to not get caught in the sunk costs fallacy. I bet the old regime would have pretended Ruf would be fine till July.
