C Carlos Ruiz will start at catcher and is batting sixth, while OF Tyler Goeddel will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf, Ruiz and Goeddel are all hitting under .200 over the first few weeks of the season and are not strong candidates for fantasy owners.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz catching Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 07:55:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz will bat sixth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Sunday, April 10. C Cameron Rupp is being given the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is receiving the starting nod behind the plate because the Phils are playing a day game following a night game. He is 3-for-7 with a home run and two RBIs in two games this season but does not have a favorable matchup versus Harvey, with just one hit in seven career at-bats versus the right-hander.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp to remain primary catcher

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 17:25:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is still expected to see the bulk of the playing time behind the plate for the team this season, even though C Carlos Ruiz started on opening day.

Fantasy Tip: The 27-year-old Rupp hit .233 with nine home runs and 28 RBIs in 270 at-bats last season and is considered to be superior offensively to Ruiz at this stage of his career, although he is not as polished on defense. He should only be used in daily fantasy games when he has a favorable matchup.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz will have starts monitored

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 16:41:58 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies manager Pete Mackanin thinks C Carlos Ruiz would benefit if he has his starts limited throughout the year.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is now 37 years old, and his power at the plate has been in decline the last three seasons. He doesn't offer much to fantasy owners these days, and he should be left to two-catcher or NL-only leagues this year.

Fantasy Tip: Since Aug. 1, Ruiz ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 9-for-45 and he is just 1-for-6 against Miley in his career. FantasyScore owners should only turn to him this afternoon if they need the cap relief.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:37:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the New York Mets. C Carlos Ruiz is batting eighth against Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has slowly gained more playing time over Ruiz, thanks mainly to a .438 batting average in the last week and a .249-6-17 season line. Rupp has played the past four days, so this looks like a normal night off to get Ruiz ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) some time. Ruiz has a .198 average at Citizens Bank Park, but he is hitting .375 in the last week.
