News: Ruiz is out of the lineup Saturday in Oakland. Impact: This is just a standard day off, and Wil Nieves will get the start behind the dish Saturday. Ruiz has only started five of the last 11 games for the Phillies, so there are probably better options at catcher in standard leagues.(RotoWire, )
