Reports: Phillies bringing back Carlos Ruiz
Multiple news outlets have reported that the Phillies have re-signed catcher Carlos Ruiz. FOX Sports‘s Ken Rosenthal had it first on Monday morning, and the Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Matt Gelb reported it is a three-year, $26 million deal.
Ruiz, 34, was an All-Star in 2012 and hit .268 with five homers and 37 RBIs in his 2013 season which was limited to 92 games because of a suspension for an amphetamine, which began at the beginning of the year.
