Carlos Ruiz had a perfect night at the plate, finishing 4-for-4 with a double and two runs scored as the Phillies won 4-1 against the Cardinals on Monday.

Ruiz had been in a two-week-long funk, batting 4-for-33 (.121) dating back to April 13. The catcher singled and scored in the seventh, then doubled and scored in the ninth. Ruiz, 36, has the most fantasy value in two-catcher leagues that use on-base percentage, but that isn't saying much.

Jonathan Papelbon escaped two-out trouble in the ninth inning to convert his fifth save of the season in Monday's victory over the Cardinals.

Papelbon got two outs quickly, but served up a double to Kolten Wong and hit Jon Jay with a pitch to bring the tying run to the plate. Cody Stanley, however, struck out swinging to end the contest. Papelbon has picked up all five save opportunities with a 1.08 ERA and a 9/1 K/BB ratio in 8 1/3 innings. Fantasy owners are hoping he gets dealt to a contender sooner rather than later, which will increase his amount of save chances.

Phillies transferred RHP Jonathan Pettibone from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Severino Gonzalez. Pettibone will now be out until at least June while working his way back from shoulder surgery.

Phillies purchased the contract of RHP Severino Gonzalez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Gonzalez will make his major league debut on Tuesday in St. Louis. Ranked before the season by Baseball America as the club's 19th-best prospect, the 22-year-old posted a 3.57 ERA with nine strikeouts over his first 17 2/3 innings at Lehigh Valley. He could stick around for a couple outings until Chad Billingsley (elbow) is ready.
Apr 27 - 11:10 PM

John Lackey took the loss on Monday against the Phillies, giving up three runs in seven innings of work.

All three runs scored with two outs in the seventh inning as Ben Revere knocked in a pair with a ground-rule double and Odubel Herrera then plated Revere with a single. Overall, Lackey surrendered nine hits and a walk while striking out one. The right-hander will take his 4.21 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 14/5 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings into next weekend's home start against the Pirates.
Apr 27 - 11:08 PM

Phillies optioned RHP Hector Neris to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Neris tossed 2 2/3 scoreless relief innings during his brief time with the big club. He's clearing out to make room for Severino Gonzalez, who will start on Tuesday.
Apr 27 - 11:06 PM

Cole Hamels finally won his first game, yielding just one run over seven innings on Monday versus the Cardinals.

Though the Phillies only provided him a total of six runs of support over his first four starts, Hamels hadn't pitched particularly well either. It was a different story on Monday night. The Phillies scored three times behind Hamels (four total) while the lefty limited the Cardinals to four hits and four walks with nine strikeouts. Hamels' control is a bit concerning as he has 16 walks in 31 innings now. Nevertheless, he heads into a weekend start against the Marlins with a 3.19 ERA.
Apr 27 - 11:05 PM

Jimmy Nelson gave up seven runs (six earned) in 2 1/3 innings, taking the loss as the Brewers were handed a 9-6 defeat by the Reds on Monday.

Nelson had poor control in this one, walking five Reds batters while allowing six hits and striking out only one. The 25-year-old had been superb in his first three starts, but some bumps in the road are to be expected in his first full season in the rotation. Nelson, now with a 3.63 ERA and an 18/9 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings, will hope for better results in a start at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.
