Ruiz went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz has made just four starts in the month of July, but has hits in each of those games. Manager Pete Mackanin said last month that he was going to cut back a bit on Cameron Rupp's playing time due to issues with his game calling, but that has not materialized. Ruiz is a candidate to be traded this month or perhaps in August should a playoff-bound team need catching depth.

Ruiz will start Sunday in order to catch for Aaron Nola, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelpia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Pete Mackanin is hoping Ruiz can help Nola turn things around after going 0-3 with a 15.83 ERA over his last three starts. If Nola has success it might help Ruiz pick up some additional playing time as he would likely be paired up with Nola moving forward. He has also recently become Jared Eickhoff's personal catcher.

Ruiz is in the lineup and batting sixth for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz will get the start in place of Cameron Rupp, but his lack of consistent playing time makes him a questionable fantasy option. The 37-year-old is hitting .225 with three home runs and seven RBI through 25 games this season.

Ruiz is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reports of late had indicated Ruiz could be in line for further playing time, but that won't be the case for Sunday's matinee affair. Cameron Rupp will get the start behind the plate, batting cleanup in place of the resting Ryan Howard. Ruiz has offered a higher batting average (.286) and more home runs (3) than Rupp this year, though one can understand why the Phillies would lean towards developing the younger Rupp, as Ruiz is nearly a decade his elder.

Manager Pete Mackanin is considering giving Ruiz some additional playing time, Bill Whitehead of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz has been splitting time behind the plate with Cameron Rupp, who has been seeing the majority of the playing time. He has hit for a better average than Rupp, and has three homers to Rupp's one. Ruiz is unlikely to see regular playing time as Mackanin believes he needs to keep him fresh with days off, but the time share behind the plate could become more evenly split if Rupp doesn't get his bat going.

Ruiz is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz will rest while Cameron Rupp starts at catcher and bats fifth. Ruiz splits time at catcher with Rupp, but since he started Saturday night, Rupp will get the start Sunday afternoon. Ruiz has gotten five hits in his last 10 at-bats.

Ruiz is batting fifth and starting at catcher Wednesday against the Mets, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz will slot in the lineup with Cameron Rupp getting the day off. Ruiz isn't the hitter he used to be, but he has flashed some pop early on this season, already having belted two home runs and a double in only 24 plate appearances thus far.

Ruiz went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk Sunday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz's second blast of the season gave the Phillies an early lead in a game they eventually go on to win in extra innings. Despite the homer, he's mired in a 1-for-14 slump that has lowered his batting average to .190.
