Transaction: Luna elects free agency, Ruf on the way?
Slugging utility something-or-other Hector Luna has chosen free agency over playing out the string with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate. Luna, who was outrighted off the 40-man roster - which now stands at 39 - hit .226/.273/.355 with a pair of homers over 66 plate appearances, spanning a couple of stints with the Big Club. Luna, a career Triple-A journeyman, had the honor of batting cleanup once - and fifth once - for the depleted Phillies. The move is reflected in the Phillies' transaction page. It could be a precoursor to adding a non-roster player, like Darin Ruf, to the roster when it expands Saturday.
