MLB free agency: Carlos Ruiz likely to re-sign with Phillies
Ruiz has multiple suitors, but seems likely to re-sign with Philadelphia.
Ruiz has emerged as one of the hotter names early in the offseason. The Colorado Rockies offered Ruiz a multi-year deal, while the Boston Red Sox have also shown interest in the catcher. Ruiz reportedly has a two-year, $20 million offer on the table but has not yet signed a contract.
Ruiz struggled offensively last year, batting .268/.320/.368. The 34-year-old is a career .274/.358/.412 hitter and is considered one of the top defensive catchers in baseball. Ruiz is hitting free-agency for the first time, and could looking for the biggest payday of his career.
