Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz was suspended 25 games Tuesday after testing positive for amphetamines, MLB announced.

Barring a rainout prolonging the ban, Ruiz should be eligible to return to action April 28, against the Mets at Citi Field. The Mets and Phillies will have played five games at that point.
