Phillies Exercise 2013 Option For Carlos Ruiz

The Phillies exercised their 2013 option for Carlos Ruiz, Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports (on Twitter). As expected, the catcher will earn $5MM in 2013 instead of a $500K buyout.

Ruiz, 33, posted a .325/.394/.540 batting line with a career-high 16 home runs in 421 plate appearances this past season. Exercising the All-Star catcher's option appears to have been an easy decision. All option decisions must be in within three days of the end of the World Series.
