Phillies' Carlos Ruiz staying fresh this spring


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz won't be used much this spring, according to MLB.com.

The 36-year-old won't catch much during camp in order to keep him fresh. Manager Ryne Sandberg confirmed that the team has a plan with Ruiz. "We kind of have a program for him," Sandberg said. "I'm going to get him behind the plate as needed the first half of Spring Training here. Get him to DH the other games. We also have a chance to get him some at-bats when they start [in the Minor League camp]."

Ruiz is on board with the move. "That's the plan until the middle of Spring Training, to be in good shape for the end of the season," Ruiz said. "I'm still catching bullpens in the morning and doing all my work. To keep fresh."

Ruiz hit .252/.347/.370 over 381 at-bats last season.

According to the depth chart on the team's official website, Carlos Ruiz remains the starting catcher and Cameron Rupp, who has played just 22 games at the major-league level, is his backup. Freddy Galvis is listed as the only shortstop in the wake of Jimmy Rollins' trade to Los Angeles.


Phillies GM on catching situation: 'We're short there'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(2/5/2015) The Phillies enter spring training with a severe lack of depth behind starting catcher Carlos Ruiz, who is 36 and could be trade bait to a contender at the July deadline, reports Philly.com. "We're short there," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. admitted.

Cameron Rupp is the current backup. He batted .183 in 60 at-bats last year.

Tommy Joseph is the only other catcher on the 40-man roster. The highly-touted 23-year-old prospect is coming back from August wrist surgery and might start the season at Double-A. He took his first batting practice a couple weeks ago.

“We’d be in trouble if Chooch goes down, so we have to continue to keep an eye on that,” Amaro said recently. “We’ve had some dialogue with some clubs about possible trades to add depth there, too. We’ll see. I think that may be something that gets more resolved in spring training than anything else.”
