He demolished that second pitch. Kid’s got fast hands. Reminds me a little of Rendon’s swing in that respect. Ruiz is obviously a bit bigger and should have better power. 
 

Honestly if defense is the only thing keeping him from being a big leaguer next year I’d move him to 1B ASAP. We can find catchers. And he should stay a lot fresher at first than being behind the plate all the time.

To date we've found:

Wilson Ramos.

Yan Gomes.

 

Its way easier to find 1st baseman than a catcher who can hit like Ruiz. There are about 4 full time catchers with a WRC+ over 100 in the majors right now.

Kurt Suzuki.

 

What do you do with Riley Adams when Ruiz is called up? Is he a candidate for a switch to 1B?  He's played a couple of games in the minors there.

How could I forget about Kurt?! I'm ashamed of myself.

 

Long term, Adams is probably more of a backup. Barrera is awful defensively--I just stole a base off him. Move him to 1st if you want to move anyone.
