Orioles claimed 3B Ruiz off waivers from the Braves during the Winter Meetings. Elias and the Astros drafted him in the fourth round of the 2012 draft.

Ruiz had a strong game at 3rd today.  Looks very solid defensively.   Nice double to left as well.

Ruiz is a guy that I think the O's really hit the jackpot on. 

 

He has a good batting eye and patience in general - his big limitations are that he doesn't really create launch angle, and he's not aggressive enough in the zone. 

 

I realize his numbers haven't really manifested, but he is the kind of player that makes me think of Justin Turner.  The kind of player that's just looking for a tweak or two to really unlock his potential.

UZR is 3.1 and his UZR/150 is 13.8.

Ruiz has certainly gone cold. He had his OPS over .700 on May 20th.  Down to .622 currently, after a .511 OPS in June (62 ab's). 

Ruiz has had a lot of good ab's this year though imo, good approach. Sprays liners when going right. Do question if he can hit enough overall though. Plays a very solid 3rd.

Apparently it has something to do with getting him back east with his wife expecting to give birth any day.
