THE PHILLIES placed Carlos Ruiz on the 7-day disabled list with concussionlike systems yesterday, about an hour before the game against the Braves. In the 11th inning of the team's 14-inning win Thursday night, a 1-1 breaking ball from Marlins righthander A.J. Ramos plunked Ruiz in the head. The Phillies' catcher remained in the game for the final few innings. Cameron Rupp caught Kyle Kendrick last night. To fill Ruiz's spot on the active roster, the Phillies selected the contract of Koyie Hill from Triple A Lehigh Valley.

CINCINNATI - The Phillies conceded another mistake Friday when outfielder Tyson Gillies cleared waivers and was removed from the 40-man roster. Gillies, 25, will remain in the organization. This designation was a formality; Gillies was never close to reaching the majors. He was one of three players acquired in December 2009 from Seattle for Cliff Lee. The Lee trade, to this point, is a total failure. Righthander J.C. Ramirez lasted 18 games in the majors with a 7.50 ERA before being jettisoned.

FOR ITS FINAL five matches before the Major League Soccer season breaks for the World Cup, the Union had prepared for life without one of its best players. Maurice Edu, summoned to Palo Alto, Calif., for World Cup training camp, was certainly in the mix to make the team to represent the United States in Brazil. But after last Thursday, the night U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann unveiled the 23-man roster, Edu found himself on a flight to Los Angeles to rejoin the Union a few weeks early.

UNION MIDFIELDER Maurice Edu, a member of the U.S. men's national soccer team that played in South Africa in 2010, was left off the final 23-man roster for this year's FIFA World Cup in Brazil. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced the roster yesterday, the absence of Landon Donovan coming as the biggest surprise. Donovan, 32, is the all-time leading goal scorer in the history of the U.S. national team. Edu, one of 30 players who had been in World Cup training camp in Palo Alto, Calif., will rejoin the Union and be available to play in Sunday night's road match against the LA Galaxy, according to the club.

NATE SMITH, 22, a baggage handler at Philadelphia International Airport and father of a 2-year-old girl, says he experiences pretty much all of the downsides of work - the constant aches and back pain from lugging more than 1,000 heavy bags every day. But earning the federal minimum wage of $7.25, the Southwest Philadelphia resident says he is not enjoying the full benefits of his labors. Smith said that he, his fiancee and his daughter are living with his grandmother to make ends meet, and he's frustrated when he can't buy his little girl a toy because he can barely pay the monthly bills.

THIS IS NOT the final passenger list. It's more like the 30 guys who got called to the gate to see whether their names will be selected off the standby list. Some guys have no doubts they will be in first class, others are pretty sure they are booked for coach, and about five to seven will be sweating bullets for a little bit longer, while USA national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann determines who will make the final 23-man World Cup roster that must be submitted to FIFA by June 2. For now, however, being among the 30 players invited to the pre-World Cup Camp that begins tomorrow at Stanford University means you still have a shot at making the roster for the trip to Brazil and the 2014 World Cup. That will make for an interesting stay in Palo Alto, Calif., as there is time for players to perform their way onto and off the USA final roster.

The team that entered Citizens Bank Park this weekend on a 93-win pace was without its third baseman, leftfielder, catcher, and fourth starter. The Phillies, for once, could boast health while Washington adjusted without key pieces like Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman. A middling first half is what doomed the Nationals a season ago, and there were lessons learned by a team widely predicted to win the World Series, not watch the entire postseason from home. "You have to start with depth," Jayson Werth said, "and you need depth right behind that.

WITH TWO first-round picks and five picks in the second round of the June 26 draft, there is little doubt the 76ers roster will look drastically different next season. Here's a look at who may be going and who may be staying: * Michael Carter-Williams ($2.3 million, signed through 2017-18): It seems to be a no-brainer that the soon-to-be-announced NBA rookie of the year will be back. But this time last year, I wrote about another young point guard who would be a key building block of the future in Jrue Holiday.
