Carlos Ruiz... again...

Postby B-Chad » Sat Apr 07, 2007 2:42 am

Any news on him... it looks like he's getting the majority of the starts and hitting well. Is he likely to continue to get the majority of the starts? His minor league numbers were pretty good last year in AAA.

I don't see it....

Barajas was signed during the offseason to be the full time catcher, and got good money, to do just that.....

But the kid has shown upside, in the early goings

Alot of Vmart owners including me are trying to find some info on this guy, appears he started the last 3 games and has hit well. What's the deal, it's basically him, Brian Schnyder or John Buck for me. His minor league numbers look pretty good. Why hasn't Barajas started the last 3 games?

Ruiz has started 2 of the last three, not all three. Barajas also started 2 so far. (I'm a Phils fan)

I believe Ruiz will be catching for Hamels all year. But the kid was highly touted and basically flamed out at the MLB level last season. The announcers kept talking about him being a very good hitter, but I thought that was bs until this season. I would monitor it closely over this first month to see if there's a trend developing.

Also a Phils fan here. The organization is still holding out hope that Ruiz will be the catcher of the future. For this year though, Manuel has said he'd ride the hot hand at catcher. Ruiz hita HR in his first start, so he got another one. Not sure who's starting tonight.

I would think Chris Coste would get some ABs whenever he comes back, he hit pretty well last season.
