Phillies | Carlos Ruiz has strained right hamstring

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz (hamstring) was removed from the game Sunday, May 19, because of a right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, this is an injury which usually requires a trip to the disabled list, especially for catchers. C Humberto Quintero is expected to be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley if a DL stint for Ruiz is required, but C Erik Kratz will get the bulk of the work behind the plate. Kratz has minimal value in NL-only leagues.
