The Seattle Mariners will sign free-agent C Humberto Quintero (Phillies) to take the roster spot of C Mike Zunino (hand).
Fantasy Tip: It was initially believed that Jason Jaramillo would come up from the minors to provide catching help, but that's not the case now. Quintero should split duties with Henry Blanco behind the dish.

The Philadelphia Phillies are unlikely to carry three catchers on their 25-man roster after the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Humberto Quintero appears to be the odd man out, with Erik Kratz returning from the disabled list. Expect Carlos Ruiz to continue getting the bulk of the starts behind the plate, with Kratz spelling him once or twice a week.

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.
