    News

    Ruiz has slashed .440/.464/.680 with four extra-base hits and two RBI over 28 plate appearances this spring.

    Impact

    Although he didn't display extraordinary power numbers over his limited sample size, Ruiz was able to get on base with consistency. The 25-year-old will likely serve as the Orioles' starting third baseman to open the season. However, he could eventually face some competition, as Renato Nunez has also been working at the hot corner ahead of Ryan Mountcastle's likely debut at some point in 2020, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
