Profile: In 2016 Ruiz hit .264/.365/.348 in 233 plate appearances split between the Phillies and Dodgers. That’s a far cry from his peak 2012 season where he hit 16 home runs with a .325 batting average, so he was probably better known last year for breaking up the relationship between Clayton Kershaw and long time battery mate A.J. Ellis, who was shipped to the Phillies for Ruiz in late August. There’s a good chance that’s where Ruiz’s notoriety ends, though it ended for fantasy owners several seasons ago despite his continued ability to make well above league average contact in the zone (95%). Ruiz was traded to the Mariners in November for Vidal Nuno, so there’s a chance he could see a small playing time increase for 2017, but that possible playing time is more likely to expose his age-induced decline than to sustain it.  (Trey Baughn)

The Quick Opinion: Ruiz won’t be relevant as a starting fantasy catcher in leagues in 2017 unless he unexpectedly receives a large increase in playing time due to injury, but even then his only path to value would (unlikely) be based on a high batting average only, which only appears possible due to his continued high rate of contact. You should look well past Ruiz for even average production at the catcher position in 2017.
