Yankees | Looking at Carlos Ruiz

The New York Yankees are throwing Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz's name around as the trade deadline approaches for an upgrade at the catching position, according to a baseball executive. The Yanks could also be interested in Phillies 2B Chase Utley and 3B Michael Young, whom the Phillies may be willing to part with. Utley and Young can both play first base now that 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) is out for the year. Utley and Young are in the final year of their contracts with Philly.

Fantasy Tip: If any one of this trio of players were to move to the Yankees, it wouldn't drastically affect their values, other than the heavy FAAB bids with their move to AL-only universes.
