Sources: Free-agent catcher Carlos Ruiz re-signing with #Phillies.

No word yet on specifics but a legit report from Fox Sports' Ken Rostenthal that catcher Carlos Ruiz will return to Philadelphia to play for the Phillies will almost assuredly make fans in this town happy. More on the details of the deal when they become available. Do you think Ruben had to overpay here too?

UPDATE: That was quick. Matt Gelb of the Inquirer says it's 3 years for $26 million which seems pretty fair in terms of yearly pay but may be a bit generous in years. Still, Chooch is back and that's exciting.

Source: Phillies have re-signed Carlos Ruiz to a three-year, $26 million contract.

I've heard #RedSox were in Ruiz negotiations right to the end. It appears #Phillies guaranteed 3rd year & hiked AAV to keep him.
