Baseball: Rio Ruiz negotiations continue

June 19, 2012 |  4:25 pm

It still could go either way whether former La Puente Bishop Amat infielder Rio Ruiz ends up at USC or signs with the Houston Astros.

He was a fourth-round draft pick and has an important doctor's appointment on Thursday when he hopes to be cleared to resume playing after being sidelined following a procedure to remove a blood clot last March.

Rudy Ruiz, Rio's father, said, "We're trying to make it work," regarding negotiations with the Astros.
