Carlos Ruiz to have shoulder examined after season

|(9/19/14) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz will have his shoulder examined after the season, according to CSN.
Ruiz tweaked his shoulder during spring training, and has dealt with nagging pain all season. He said the issue normally gets better with some rest. He added that he wasn't sure whether surgery would be an option.

|(9/2/14) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz went 2 for 3 with a walk, a home run and two RBI in his team's 4-0 win over the Braves Tuesday.
Ruiz opened the scoring with a solo home run in the fifth inning, and he tacked on another run on a double in the eighth. It was his first game with multiple extra-base hits since recording two doubles on July 26. Ruiz has hit .264/.362/.385 with five home runs and 25 RBI in 330 at-bats.
Carlos Ruiz clubs third home run Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(8/9/14) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 2-1 loss to the Mets Saturday.
Ruiz evened the game with his seventh-inning home run, but it was the only offense the Phillies could muster in the 11-inning loss. It was Ruiz's first home run in more than two months, and he now owns a .265/.360/.376 line with three homers and 18 RBI in 279 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Carlos Ruiz was a top 10 catcher in 2012, but the following year, he reverted to being a singles hitter, and last season there were some signs of slippage in his typically stout contact rate. That's not unexpected for a 35-year-old hitter, but unfortunately for Ruiz, it meant he took a big step towards Fantasy irrelevance. With a .252 batting average, six home runs and 31 RBI, Ruiz was 18th among catchers in Fantasy points, and he fell outside the top 25 in Rotisserie value.|
Playing time status: Ruiz will spend another season as the Phillies' primary catcher, and with no established backup on the roster, he shouldn't get a serious challenge for playing time.
2015 outlook: With his recent decline, Ruiz has lost appeal in most two-catcher mixed leagues. The exception is in points leagues, where his ability to draw walks makes him a useful second catcher. Otherwise, Ruiz can be ignored in most formats other than NL-only leagues.
