|Carlos Ruiz, who leads all NL catchers in multiple offensive categories, including batting average, OPS and RBIs (tied), is looking to make is first All-Star team this season. But, as of today’s balloting update, he currently sits in fourth place among NL catchers, trailing Yadier Molina (Cardinals), Buster Posey, (Giants) and Brian McCann (Braves).|
Carlos Ruiz needs your help!
Here are the tallied votes so far…
- Yadier Molina, Cardinals: 1,000,048
- Buster Posey, Giants: 707,508
- Brian McCann, Braves: 707,508
- Carlos Ruiz, Phillies: 562,021
He’s currently the #2 hitter in the the National League in hitting at .371, but as we all know the All-Star game is popularity contest, and he’s got to contend with Brian McCann and Yadier Molina in the NL.
McCann has been ill with the flu lately, but is hitting . 323 with seven home runs and 28 RBI.
Molina is tough competition, too. Ruiz has the highest batting average, highest slugging percentage, and highest OPS among NL catchers, but is tied with Molina in homers and RBI.
