SAN FRANCISCO - Carlos Ruiz took part in his daily pregame routine during batting practice at AT&T Park yesterday. He fielded ground balls at third base alongside Michael Young. But for the second time in the last five games, Ruiz did not start behind the plate when the Phillies took the field later in the night to take on the San Francisco Giants. Erik Kratz started at catcher in place of Ruiz, who is hitting .100 (2-for-20) since returning from his 25-game suspension. Over the weekend, Ruiz said he's still attempting to get into a comfort zone at the plate after his near monthlong absence.

ATLANTA - Carlos Ruiz had to watch the video to make sure what he saw with his two eyes in the seventh inning of the Phillies' 10-2 rout of Atlanta on Saturday was correct, because it was too hard to believe at first. The Phillies catcher cued up the second pitch Braves reliever Scott Linebrink threw him, a 94-m.p.h. fastball high and inside. Swing and a miss. That put Ruiz, pinch-hitting for the first time this season, in an 0-2 hole. With the bases loaded, Ruiz could not have been expecting a strike from Linebrink.

A woozy Carlos Ruiz, still feeling the effects of being hit in the head by a broken bat the night before, left Citizens Bank Park an hour before Saturday's game began. The Phillies don't expect Ruiz to need a stint on the disabled list, but the injury is serious enough to keep the catcher sidelined for a few days. That necessitated the recall of catcher Dane Sardinha from triple-A Lehigh Valley. To free space for Sardinha, righthander Scott Mathieson was designated for assignment.

The mathematics being performed by the Phillies in the coming weeks and months is going to involve only addition, subtraction, and multiplication. The degree of difficulty, however, must seem more on the level of advanced calculus for general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and his team of decision makers. Perhaps the most complicated problem of them all will be at catcher. What to do about Carlos Ruiz? This dilemma is a reflection of just how fast the game of baseball can change.

IN ADDITION TO righting their ship, the Phillies also must avoid taking on more water, a task that became more challenging yesterday when a couple of their stars were sidelined with injuries. Carlos Ruiz and Ryan Howard will both undergo MRIs today as the Phillies prepare to start a three-game series against the Marlins in Miami. At least for the moment, Ruiz' injury appears to be more significant. The catcher suffered a right hamstring strain while moving from first to third on a single in the second inning.

Eleven years ago, former Phillies scout Allan Lewis told Sal Agostinelli that a short, stocky second baseman from Panama could hit and throw a baseball. "I think part of our job is to dream a lot when you sign a guy," said Agostinelli, the Phillies' international scouting supervisor. "I liked this kid because Allan told me he could hit. He didn't think he ran fast enough to play the middle infield, but he thought he could catch because of the way he could throw. " Scouts dream.

Citizens Bank Park was half empty when the Phillies finally won Sunday, probably because these fans too often have seen games like this one evolve into a horror show. The nightmare fuel is a tie game, an open bullpen door, and extra innings. So there was satisfaction in the Phillies clubhouse after a 4-3, 12-inning victory over San Francisco - no matter how close to irrelevance the team stands. Above the field, where general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and his lieutenants sit, the same feeling likely existed for far different reasons.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Carlos Ruiz had not yet attempted to catch an R.A. Dickey knuckleball, but the Phillies catcher already knew what he preferred. "Man, he's tough," Ruiz said. "If you're catching, it's OK. But if you hit, that ball is moving so much. " Ruiz tossed with Dickey during batting practice Monday and will enter Tuesday's All-Star Game when Dickey does. That is National League manager Tony La Russa's plan to contain the knuckleball. Dickey was a favorite to start the game.

NEW YORK - The easiest catching decision Charlie Manuel must make Sunday morning is writing Carlos Ruiz's name on his lineup card, probably batting fifth. Before that, the Phillies must decide whose roster spot Ruiz takes. There are pros and cons to keeping either Erik Kratz or Humberto Quintero as Ruiz's backup. Assistant general manager Scott Proefrock said the team had not reached a verdict Saturday. Ruiz played once more at double-A Reading on Saturday night. "Any decision you make like that is difficult," Manuel said.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - There's about to be another "Chooch" in town. Carlos Ruiz was excused from spring training Monday to attend the birth of his latest child, a boy also named Carlos. Father and son have different middle names. Ruiz also has an 8-year- old son named Carlos, his agent said yesterday. Ruiz, whose popularity in Philadelphia has exploded over the last three seasons, is expected back in camp tomorrow. Veteran backup Brian Schneider took his place behind the plate in the Phillies' 6-5 loss to the Orioles yesterday.
