Mariners' Carlos Ruiz: Bangs out pair of hits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz went 2-for-2 with an RBI single in Thursday's 6-2 Cactus League win over the Brewers.

The veteran catcher is now hitting .333 after Thursday's effort, which included a run-scoring single that drove home Ben Gamel in the fourth. Ruiz has built a rock-solid offensive resume over his 10-plus major league seasons, and, although he's slated to be Mike Zunino's backup, the plan is for him to receive a greater degree of playing time than a typical reserve catcher.

Mariners' Carlos Ruiz: Could see more playing time than expected
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ruiz, who came to the Mariners in a Nov. 7 trade with the Dodgers, is slated to potentially receive more playing time than is typically afforded to back-up catchers, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

The 38-year-old backstop brings a wealth of experience and a productive bat to the Mariners as starting catcher Mike Zunino's primary backup, having hit .264 with eight doubles, three homers and 15 RBI over 62 games last season with the Phillies and Dodgers. There appear to be no plans to coddle Ruiz in terms of managing his playing time either, with manager Scott Servais emphasizing that they're not looking for Zunino to "play or catch 125 or 130 games." As such, Ruiz could potentially see a similar degree of opportunity as he did last season, particularly given Servais' lofty view of what he can still bring to the table. "He's been on a World Series team, lot of good teams over in Philadelphia, gets traded for his first time last year over to the Dodgers and really does a nice job with them, helps them in their playoff run. Just the experience level he brings and he can still play, he can still hit, there's no doubt. Not a power guy by any means but handles the bat, controls the strike zone. It's a really nice fit with Mike Zunino."

Mariners' Carlos Ruiz: Dealt to Mariners on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was traded to the Mariners in exchange for left-handed pitcher Vidal Nuno on Monday.

Ruiz was a solid backup catcher down the stretch after being acquired by the Dodgers, but given the younger options behind the dish (Yasmani Grandal, Austin Barnes), the veteran backstop was deemed expendable. It's unclear how playing time will be distributed between the 37-year-old and incumbents Mike Zunino and Jesus Sucre, but either way, Ruiz has an opportunity to appear in the lineup more now that designated hitting is an option to keep his bat in the lineup.

Dodgers' Carlos Ruiz: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ruiz is out of Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.

After getting a start on Yasmani Grandal's day off Friday, Ruiz is back to the bench, where he will be more often than not down the home stretch. While neither catcher is hitting the cover off the ball, Ruiz's .200 batting average since mid-August won't move him up the depth chart.

Dodgers' Carlos Ruiz: Making Dodgers debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ruiz is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs.

Ruiz will make his Dodgers debut Friday evening when Los Angeles hosts the Cubs. Ruiz is hitting a respectable .261/.368/.352 for the year, but has gone just 2-for-12 over the last seven days.
