Ross over Ruiz?

The Phillies could be interested in

Ross over Ruiz?

Fox's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies have shown interested in Reds catcher David Ross, who the Reds released yesterday.

Ross hit .231 with a .381 on-base percentage this season.

Carlos Ruiz is hitting .220 with a .322 on-base percentage.

Charlie Manuel has been dying for more more production from the bottom of his lineup. Ross wouldn't provide a huge boost, but he at least would get on base more often than Ruiz and provide Jimmy Rollins a few more RBI opportunities at the top of the lineup.
