Carlos Ruiz homers and doubles

Carlos Ruiz went 2-for 3, hitting a solo-shot and a double in Seattle's 10-2 drubbing of Oakland on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

After an 0-for-13 slump over six games, Ruiz has now gone 4-for-7 in his last two games with two home runs and two RBIs. Manager Scott Servais gave the veteran backstop a breather in the ninth inning, allowing catcher Mike Marjama to make his Major League debut. Ruiz playing time is limited (he has appeared in only 46 games this year) and thus he offers little fantasy value other than a cheap play in daily formats.

Carlos Ruiz hits solo shot

Carlos Ruiz deposited a Sonny Gray fastball into the Yankee Stadium left field bleachers for a solo homer in Seattle's 6-3 loss Saturday against New York. He also singled, finishing the day 2-4.

Fantasy Impact

The solo shot and single were Ruiz's only hits in August. The seldom used backstop was 0-15 for the month coming into Saturday's affair. Ruiz has appeared in only 45 games this season, logging a .213 AVG, 2 HR and 10 RBI over 108 at-bats. Unfortunately, his fantasy value has been long gone since his glory days in Philadelphia.

Carlos Ruiz chips in with his first two hits as a Mariner

Carlos Ruiz had a productive game in his second start, with an RBI double in a 2-4 day at the plate, as well as a walk.

Fantasy Impact

Ruiz is a 38 year-old backup, and not a reliable fantasy option.

Carlos Ruiz has been traded to the Dodgers

Former Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz and cash have been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for catcher A.J. Ellis, RHP Tommy Bergjans and a player to be named later.

Fantasy Impact

Carlos Ruiz has similar tools to Ellis and view their leadership style to be very similar. Neither catcher should have much fantasy relevance but Ruiz is worth looking at if you are desperate.

Carlos Ruiz continues to produce in limited role

Carlos Ruiz reached base three times in the Phillies 6-3 win over the Rockies on Saturday. Ruiz finished 1-for-2 with a double and two walks. His solid game raised his batting average to .268 for the season.

Fantasy Impact

Ruiz has only appeared in 44 games this season, but has made the most of it. His on-base percentage is impressive, at .381 and has a respectable .750 OPS. Expect Ruiz to continue to see a couple starts per week and isn't a bad backup catcher for teams with extra spots on their roster.
