|(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.

Ranking catchers for 2015
Ranking the catchers for the 2015 season, and be warned the position lacks depth and sizzle.
|Carlos Ruiz had a major letdown in 2013 following a career campaign in 2012, when he hit .325 with a .540 slugging percentage, .935 OPS, 16 home runs, 32 doubles and 68 RBI -- all career highs. Ruiz's 2013 season got off to an ominous start as he was limited to 16 appearances through first 71 games because of a 25-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy and then suffered a hamstring injury. Ruiz wouldn't start to hit like the player we saw in 2012 until late August, when he collected a .298 average, a .465 slugging percentage, .825 OPS, three home runs, 10 doubles and 23 RBI over his last 31 games. For the season, however, Ruiz hit just .268 with a .368 slugging percentage, .688 OPS, five home runs, 16 doubles and 37 RBI in 92 games. Still, despite the down year, the Phillies re-signed Ruiz to a three-year, $26 million contract. He has shown in the past he's capable of hitting for a decent average and has a penchant for doubles, but don't expect many home runs or for Ruiz to be a major RBI contributor. Ruiz is more of an NL-only and low-end No. 2 Fantasy catcher in Rotisserie formats.
