Phillies | Carlos Ruiz not playing Monday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't have much offensive upside for the Phillies, and he should be considered a low-end catching option on FantasyScore this evening. Rupp has just one home run and six RBI in 95 at-bats this year.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz out again

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:19:54 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup for the second straight day Monday, June 22. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting seventh against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has started four times in the past week with Ruiz (.227-0-11) struggling all season long. This may start to become more of a trend with Rupp seeing more playing time over Ruiz. It's just another reason why Ruiz shouldn't be owned in shallow mixed leagues if you were hanging on. Rupp is a weak catching option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz will not start

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 12:25:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Wednesday, June 17. C Cameron Rupp will be the starting catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is likely receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next game or two. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has five hits and two RBI over his last four starts but may not be the top option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz will not play

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 13:20:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Monday, June 15. C Cameron Rupp will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) caught 11 innings Sunday, June 14, so he is likely receiving a day off. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has five hits and two RBI in his last three starts, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options at the position.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz back behind the plate

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 12:59:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is starting at catcher and batting eighth Saturday, June 13, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hasn't provided a lot offensively this year, and it's not likely that he will today against Gerrit Cole. While he is a cheap investment on FantasyScore, it's probably best not to roster him.

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:40:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a very weak catching option on FantasyScore, even against the struggling Locke. Rupp has 14 hits in 60 at-bats (.233) with no home runs and four RBI in 2015.

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Jon Moscot.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided everywhere. He has only 12 hits in 56 at-bats in 2015 as the team's backup.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz sitting vs. Giants

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 12:12:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Friday, June 5. C Cameron Rupp is starting behind the plate and batting ninth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is well on his way to his third consecutive season with a decline statistically, and outside of NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats, he isn't worth a roster spot. Even in those formats, Ruiz holds limited upside. With Tim Lincecum pitching well this season, there isn't a lot to like about Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in FantasyScore contests, either.

Sun, 31 May 2015 09:26:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. C Cameron Rupp will take his place in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .204 this season and likely is not a great option on FantasyScore.
