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 Humberto Quintero is catching SP Roy Halladay Monday, April 8, instead of C Erik Kratz. Halladay was particularly upset with a pitch location that Kratz called in his first start against the Atlanta Braves. The pitch wound up being hit for a home run, and Halladay later called the pitch "half-hearted." "We went in with a low target, which isn't what we wanted to do," Halladay said. "You're not going to get him out there. What I wanted to do wasn't executed."
Fantasy Tip: Quintero has now started two of the last three games over Kratz. Don't read too much into this right now, but Kratz's game-calling skills may be starting to hurt his playing time. Remember, Carlos Ruiz will be back after serving his 25-game suspension, too.
