Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz (hamstring) will land on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 21, with a Grade 2 hamstring strain.
Fantasy Tip: Ruiz was disappointing at the plate after missing the first 25 games of the season thanks to a PED suspension. In single-catcher mixed league formats, it's probably safe to drop Ruiz at this time. Erik Kratz is expected to take over the primary catching duties, although he could split with Humberto Quintero.

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.

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz went 0-for-2 Sunday, May 5, and is 2-for-20 to start the season since returning from his 25-game suspension.
Fantasy Tip: Remember, Ruiz has only been back for a week since serving his suspension, so give him some time to get his rhythm against major league pitchers back. For now, it might be wise to keep him benched until he starts showing signs of life.

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is batting fifth against the New York Mets Sunday, April 28. OF Ben Revere (quadriceps) remains out of the lineup and 1B Ryan Howard is getting a day off.

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz will begin a rehab assignment for Single-A Clearwater Tuesday, April 23, and he's eligible to return from his 25-game suspension Sunday, April 28.
Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is unlikely to be available on many waiver wires, but if he is, you must acquire him immediately. Ruiz will return as the club's starting catcher, and he's one of the most reliable hitting backstops in the game.
