Carlos Ruiz is headed back to Eastern Pennsylvania. The Phillies' all-star catcher will play for the Reading Fightin Phils on Friday and Saturday nights in preparation of being activated for Sunday afternoon's big-league game against the Mets in New York. Ruiz, who is serving a 25-game suspension for testing positive for a banned stimulant last season, will play games at Single A Clearwater on Tuesday and Wednesday before traveling north on Thursday.
