News: Ruiz is out of the Phillies' lineup Saturday against the Giants, Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports. Impact: Ruiz was just afforded a rest with the team off day Thursday, but he's 8-for-38 (.211 average) in his career against Tim Hudson, so manager Ryne Sandberg will turn to Wil Nieves to man the backstop Saturday. The 35-year-old Ruiz is batting just .184/.244/.289 so far in August, after going 11-for-25 in his first six games back from a concussion.(RotoWire, )

Thu. Aug 14, 2014
News: Ruiz went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Angels. Impact: All three hits were singles, which has become a very familiar outcome for Ruiz since the .540 slugging percentage peak he posted in 2012. Ruiz is hitting for marginally more power than he did last season, but now that he's 35 years old, he shouldn't be counted on as more than a No. 2 catcher in most mixed leagues.(RotoWire, )
