Dodgers' Keibert Ruiz: Hits first long balls in Texas League
Ruiz went 2-for-5 with two home runs in Monday's game for Double-A Tulsa.
This was a much-needed slump buster for one of the game's top catching prospects, as the two home runs represented his first two extra-base hits of the season. He is now hitting .225/.262/.375 through 42 plate appearances, although he has had some bad luck on balls in play (.226 BABIP). His strikeout rate (16.7 percent) remains elite, and he is the second-youngest hitter in the Texas League (behind Fernando Tatis), so there is no cause for concern. Ruiz turns 20 in July.
