Phillies catchers had an .861 OPS last season, which was the best in baseball. Ruiz has a career .781 OPS with a career-high .935 OPS last season.
Humberto Quintero was scheduled to catch Phillies right-hander Kyle Kendrick on Tuesday. He entered the night hitting .222 (2-for-9) with one double. Erik Kratz entered the night hitting .171 (7-for-41) with two doubles, one home run and three RBIs.
Asked if he might use these final 12 days to evaluate his catchers, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said, "They can count. When people start coming back, we're going to have to make some changes on our roster."
But Manuel added anytime any of his hitters feel like stringing together some hits, he will take it.
