Ruiz went smacked a solo home run in his only plate appearance during Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz made it back-to-back round trippers for the Mariners in the third when he launched a 422-foot shot to left immediately following fellow backstop Mike Zunino's solo blast. The 38-year-old has provided solid offense throughout his career, although he's found success at the plate hard to come by thus far in a Seattle uniform. Ruiz could be starting to snap out of his funk, however, as he's hit safely in five of his last eight contests overall, raising his average 86 points to .204 over that span in the process.

Ruiz went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The three-hit effort was Ruiz's first of the season and only his second multi-hit game of the year in 60 plate appearances. Chooch is hitting just .180 on the season with no home runs and six RBI. He's unlikely to see consistent at-bats as the current backup to Mike Zunino.

Ruiz is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Mariners bringing Mike Zunino back from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the week, Ruiz has been stuck on the bench for the previous two games and looks like he'll resume serving in a backup capacity for the time being. It was take another prolonged cold spell from Zunino before Ruiz sees regular at-bats again.

Ruiz is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

"Chooch" posted another 0-for in Thursday's contest to lower his season batting average to .119, so he'll head to the bench for a night off. Duffy Gosewisch will take over for Ruiz for the evening.

Ruiz is not in the lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite knocking in four runs during Wednesday's win over the Phillies, Ruiz will head to the bench for the second time in three games. Duffy Gosewisch will draw the start behind the plate in his stead.

Ruiz went 1-for-4 with a three-run double and a sacrifice fly in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He also struck out twice, but Ruiz still stuck it to his former team, delivering the day's most unexpected four-RBI line. Unfortunately, he's still sitting on a hideous .129 average; even more unfortunately, he's the Mariners' starting catcher anyway. The 38-year-old Panamanian looks like he's close to the end of the line, but he'll retain the No. 1 role behind the plate in Seattle at least until Mike Zunino can hit his way back to the big leagues.

Ruiz is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ruiz is hitless in May (0-for-5) so he'll head to the bench to clear his head as Tuffy Gosewisch gets the nod behind the dish in his place.
