Ruiz activated, Utley's destination clouded

Ruiz activated by Phillies

Carlos Ruiz is back with the Phillies Tuesday following a successful rehab stint.

Ruiz, who rehabbed with the IronPigs over the weekend, told reporters that he expected to catch in Reading on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

However, on Monday, Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro said that Ruiz is progressing ahead of schedule and his timetable for a return to the Phils may move up.

Amaro also said that Chase Utley is expected to start a rehab assignment in the next day or two. 

He didn't say where or when, but Reading would be the logical destination since the IronPigs are on the road this week.
