Orioles' Rio Ruiz: Claimed by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Monday.

Ruiz appeared in 72 games for the Braves over the last three seasons, hitting just .189/.282/.302. His .264/.333/.409 line in three seasons at the Triple-A level suggests the potential for at least competent performance, but as a player who is limited to the corners defensively, his ceiling is quite low. He now finds himself in an organization which lacks established players all around the diamond, but it would be a surprise to see him break out and become a real asset in 2019.

Braves' Rio Ruiz: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Ruiz was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Lucas Duda, who was acquired from the Royals via trade Wednesday. With rosters set to expand Saturday, the 24-year-old should be back in the majors as a bench bat when first eligible.

Braves' Rio Ruiz: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Ruiz from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday, David O'Brien of The Athletic Atlanta reports.

He'll be available off the bench for the series finale in Miami, assuming the active roster spot of catcher Chris Stewart, who was designated for assignment. The 24-year-old third baseman has seen action with the big club in both of the past two seasons, slashing .197/.283/.318 across 180 plate appearances, but this will mark his first callup of 2018. Ruiz will likely play only a bit role off the bench over the final few weeks of the season as the Braves look to solidify a playoff spot.

Braves' Rio Ruiz: Optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Ruiz just missed out on an Opening Day roster spot and will head back to the Triple-A level for the beginning of the 2018 campaign. Last season, he wound up playing in 53 games for the Braves, but hit just .193 with four home runs and 19 RBI in 173 plate appearances. Since Ruiz has the ability to play multiple positions in the field, he could find himself back at the major-league level in due time, though it's unlikely that he will make much of a fantasy impact either way.

Braves' Rio Ruiz: Strong candidate for Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ruiz is likely to make the Braves' Opening Day roster, especially if Johan Camargo (back/oblique) does not recover in time, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Ruiz could start at third in Camargo's place or could fill a utility role on the bench if Camargo is healthy. Ruiz appeared in 53 games for the Braves last year, hitting .193/.283/.307 with a 13.4 percent line drive, which would have tied for last among all qualified hitters. He's still just 23 and has time to improve but seems unlikely to be much of a fantasy asset this season even if given unexpected playing time.
