Carlos Ruiz re-signs with Phillies for three years and $26 million with option

I choo-choo-Chooch you.

The noise you hear coming from Philadelphia way is “Choooooooooch.” The Phillies signed popular catcher Carlos Ruiz to a three-year deal Monday for $26 million that includes an option for a fourth season. Reporter Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer had the terms first.

Jayson Stark of ESPN says the contract/fourth-year buyout breaks down like so.

Ruiz, who turns 35 in January, batted .268/.320/.368 with five homers and 16 doubles in 341 plate appearances — though nearly all of his power came in the second half. About this time a year ago, Major League Baseball announced that he was suspended for the first 25 games of the 2012 season because he tested positive for a banned stimulant.

Boston Red Sox might be willing to overpay free-agent catcher Carlos Ruiz - FOX Sports on MSN

I am not a huge fan of Ruiz but he very well might be a decent stop gap for the Red Sox.
