Ruiz, Young, Morrison all back from DL tonight

Three teams will get significant players back from the disabled list on Friday.

The Phillies are activating catcher Carlos Ruiz, who missed the last 12 games with a lower back strain. The Twins are activating Delmon Young, who missed the last 19 gaems with an oblique strain. And the Marlins are activating Logan Morrison, who was out 21 games with a sprained arch in his left foot.

The Phillies have rolled on in Ruiz's absence, going 8-4 without him. But if anything, Ruiz has raised his profile among scouts with his play this year. Just this week, a group of scouts were talking about how he now ranks very near the top of any list of major-league catchers.

Ruiz takes Brian Schneider's roster spot. Schneider went on the DL with a left hamstring strain.

Ruiz played in a rehabilitation game Thursday night for Class A Clearwater, as did Chase Utley and Roy Oswalt. The Phillies have been quiet on a projected date for Utley's return, but it's worth remembering that he tends to keep these rehab assignments as brief as possible. As for Oswalt, the Phils have been hoping he'll be able to start on Tuesday in St. Louis, although his lack of velocity Thursday night must be a concern.

The Twins haven't done nearly as well without Young, going 6-13 while he has recovered from a strained oblique. While Joe Mauer's health and Justin Morneau's struggles justifiably get more attention, Young's absence has been felt. Young drove in 112 runs last year, although he wasn't off to a great start (.228, 6 RBI in 16 games) before he got hurt.

The Twins optioned Rene Tosoni back to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Young.

Morrison was a big part of the Marlins' early-season success, hitting .327 with 11 RBI in 15 games. The Marlins went 12-9 in his absence.
