Phillies | Cameron Rupp out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:34:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is not starting Tuesday, May 24, against the Detroit Tigers. C Carlos Ruiz is batting sixth against Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: This is merely the Ruiz half of the platoon getting a chance to play in a game. Although Ruiz is .294-2-4 in away games, he still carries little fantasy value in all formats because of the platoon situation and the low numbers this month (7-for-33, .212 average in May).

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:14:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Andres Blanco will bat third and start at second base against SP Williams Perez Saturday, May 21, with 2B Cesar Hernandez receiving the day off. In addition, C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat sixth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco and Ruiz have both been productive in limited playing time and are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests. However, Lough has struggled at the plate and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp, Peter Bourjos out

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:22:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp and OF Peter Bourjos are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Sunday, May 15. C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat fifth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is batting .291 with three home runs and six RBI in just 55 at-bats and makes an excellent value play in DFS this afternoon. Lough has limited upside and does not offer much more than salary cap relief.

Phillies | Tommy Joseph making major league debut

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:05:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Tommy Joseph is starting at first base and is batting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan in his major league debut Friday, May 13. 1B Ryan Howard is starting on the bench against the left-hander. C Carlos Ruiz is in the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph was tearing it up in the minors and is finally healthy after three concussions in previous seasons. He should at least platoon with Howard at first base and face and is worth the immediate pickup in dynasty and NL-only leagues. Ruiz has looked much better this year at the plate than last and is certainly worth a low-priced flier in daily formats if you're looking to save money at the position against Finnegan.

Phillies | Ryan Howard, Carlos Ruiz resting

Sun, 08 May 2016 08:35:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard and C Carlos Ruiz are out of the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Sunday, May 8. 1B Darin Ruf will bat cleanup and play first base, while C Cameron Rupp starts behind the plate and bats fifth. In addition, OF Tyler Goeddel will play left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp, Ruf and Goeddel should all be viewed as desperation sources of salary cap relief in daily fantasy games. Ruf has the most upside because of his career success versus lefties but he is hitting just .157 with three RBI in 57 at-bats this season.

Phillies | Three regulars out for Phillies

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 10:14:45 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard, C Cameron Rupp and OF Cedric Hunter are not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Sunday, April 17. 1B Darin Ruf will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup. 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, 17 Apr 2016 07:40:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is batting sixth and starting behind the plate against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Sunday, April 17. C Cameron Rupp is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ruiz is just 3-for-18 at the plate this season and should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option for daily fantasy contests.

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.
