Phillies C Carlos Ruiz homers, doubles in losing end of rout Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/11/15) Catcher Carlos Ruiz was a bright spot in an otherwise forgettable night for the Phillies on Friday. Ruiz went 3 for 4, including his second home run of the year in the 15-2 loss to the Giants. Ruiz's solo shot actually tied the game at 1-1 in top of the fourth inning, but the Giants would pour on eight runs in the bottom half.
Ruiz homered and doubled off Giants starter Madison Bumgarner on Friday. Both of Ruiz's homers this year have come in his last 10 games, and he is batting .264 over that stretch.

|(7/5/15) Catcher Carlos Ruiz had two hits and drove in a pair of runs as the Phillies pulled out a 10-inning victory over the Braves on Sunday.
Ruiz's biggest hit came in the 10th, when Philadelphia had just grabbed a 1-0 lead on a Ryan Howard sacrifice fly. Ruiz followed with a double to deep left field, giving the Phillies the insurance runs they needed to pick up the win.
Ruiz's offensive numbers are down from his prime, but he does have four RBIs and three hits in his last four games to raise his season total to .223.

|(6/13/15) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz will start on Saturday against the Pirates.

Phillies C Carlos Ruiz avoiding extended slumps
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz hasn't enjoyed a spectacular game since April 27, when he slammed four hits and scored twice in St. Louis. But his recent run has been marked by consistency.
Ruiz has just five hitless games since May 11. He has one or two hits in the rest of them, though he is trending downward with a 3-for-17 drought in the last five starts.
His slash line sits at .243/.319/.285.
|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.
