33-year old righty swinging catcher Carlos Ruiz is ripping the ball so far this year for the Phillies. Ruiz has played in 35 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 41 for 113 (.363 avg, 1.024 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 7 homers, 27 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Ruiz has only walked 8 times this year, but he has only whiffed 12 times. So he is swinging at a lot of pitches and he’s hitting them really hard. Ruiz has career highs of 49 runs scored, 9 homers and 54 RBIs in his major league career and he’s likely to smash those numbers as long as he can stay healthy.
