Worth noting

• Ruiz, who is 2-for-10 in three rehab games at Clearwater, could return to the Majors by the end of the week.

"He could be looking at the end of the week here possibly, something like that, if everything goes well," Sandberg said. "He needs some time to get his timing back, to get some quality at-bats and how he feels, along with building up his game strength and everything for nine innings, catching nine innings. That'll all be monitored and checked out each game that he plays."
