FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE BREAKING NEWS: PHILS RE-SIGN CATCHER CARLOS RUIZ FOR THREE YEARS AND $26 MILLION

                                                     

The Philadelphia Phillies re-signed free agent catcher Carlos Ruiz to a three-year deal for $26 million.  Ruiz got interest from the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox before re-upping with the Phils.

Analysis:  This is a lot of dough for a shoddy hitter who is past the age of 30 and who also has a PED bust on his ledger.  Ruiz has zero fantasy baseball value as his 2012 season is now a complete fluke given the PED suspension.  A.J. Pierzynski, Brian McCann, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia now headline the remaining class of catcher.
