Carlos Ruiz (C, PHI) - Waiver Wire Analysis

The Mechanic - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Two Catcher Leagues and Deep Standard Leagues

ANALYSIS: Ruiz is only 31% owned in Yahoo! leagues which means he's plenty available even in ~10 team 2 catcher leagues.  Ruiz has racked up 13 hits in his last 8 games, with an impressive 7:2 BB:K ratio, 7 RBI, 4 2B, and 9 runs.  He's on fire! His .419 OBP is off the charts and his elite batting eye should help him bat for a very high BA (for catchers at least).  It was only 2 years ago that Ruiz batted .325 with 16 HR and 68 RBI in just 372 AB. He has huge upside as a 2nd catcher, and is serviceable in 1-catcher leagues for those of you still hurting from the loss of Wilson Ramos.
