Koyie Hill Acquired for No Reason

Carlos Ruiz- starting catcher.  Wil Nieves- MLB backup.  Cameron Rupp- waiting in Triple A.  Lou Marson- released.  Naturally, acquire a 35 year old catcher that can't hit, at all. Ruben Amaro, the mad genius that he is, got Koyie Hill from the Nationals for a player to be named later or cash considerations (basically, not too damn much).  Over 10 MLB seasons with the Cubs...

Prospect Nation 2014: #16 Catcher Cameron Rupp

Phillies Add Another Catcher- Wil Nieves

Heading into the offseason, catching was a priority. Hence, Carlos Ruiz was re-upped for 3 years. Leaving Erik Kratz and Cameron Rupp in a battle for backup backstop. Nope, not so.

Lou Marson Among Non-Tendered Players Could Give Phillies Catching Depth

The Phillies are pretty short on catching depth. Yes, the team re-signed catcher Carlos Ruiz to a three-year deal, but the other options are pretty light. Erik Kratz hit a few home runs, but barely kept to the Mendoza line in 2013. Cameron Rupp was rushed to the big leagues...

Cameron Rupp as Phillies starting catcher...not yet

Cameron Rupp had a good go at it in his four September starts with the Phillies last season, hitting .308 with two ribbies in 13 at-bats. Nice job, but it doesn't trump a combined .258 average in 2013 combined between Reading (.245) and Lehigh Valley (.269). In fact, you probably would not be reading about Rupp at all if it wasn't for a few words and a hearty endorsement...
