Cameron Rupp went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run as the Phillies lost 9-4 to the Padres on Sunday.

Rupp made it a 2-1 game in the second inning with a solo home run to the opposite field off of James Shields. It's his fourth home run in his last six games, continuing a torrid month of August during which he is hitting .327 (18-for-55). Rupp is batting .254/.320/.426 overall with eight home runs and 34 RBI in 219 plate appearances.

Cameron Rupp homered and drove home four runs on Friday, leading the Phillies to a 7-1 victory over the Padres.

He got the Phillies on the board with an RBI ground out in the fourth inning, then capped off the scoring with a three-run blast off Odrisamer Despaigne in the eighth inning. Rupp finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .255/.316/.417 with seven homers and 23 RBI on the year.

Cameron finished 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

Rupp hit a two-run double in the eighth inning as the Phillies attempted to erase a six-run deficit. Getting a majority of the starts behind home plate lately, the 26-year-old is riding a nine-game hitting streak. He's batting .254/.313/.402 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 208 plate appearances, emerging as the superior option -- both offensively and defensively -- over veteran Carlos Ruiz.

Cameron Rupp went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run as the Phillies took down the Marlins on Sunday.

Rupp gave the Phillies some late insurance, boosting the Phillies' lead to 2-0 with a solo home run off of Chris Narveson in the seventh inning. The catcher is on a seven-game hitting streak and has homered four times in the month of August. Rupp also looked strong defensively, throwing out two of three would-be base-stealers on Sunday. On the season, he owns a .247/.305/.379 batting line with five home runs and 16 RBI. Rupp is likely looking at increased playing time next season, but his fantasy value will be limited to NL-only leagues.
Aug 23 - 4:03 PM

Cameron Rupp homered in the top of the 12th to lead the Phillies past the Padres 4-3 on Friday.

It was Rupp's third homer, two of which have come in his last three starts. Even with his modest .226 average, he's exceeded expectations offensively this year while sharing time with Carlos Ruiz. That's because he was one of the worst hitters in Triple-A last year, finishing at .165/.257/.299 for Lehigh Valley and then hitting .183/.234/.250 in 60 major league at-bats.
Aug 8 - 2:51 AM

Phillies recalled C Cameron Rupp from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

He'll function as a third catcher for Philadelphia now that rosters have expanded. Rupp is hitting .190 (11-for-58) over 17 games with the Phillies this season.

Phillies recalled C Cameron Rupp from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Rupp is batting just .167/.295/.370 in 129 plate appearances this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old catcher is doubtful to receive much playing time.
Thu, Jun 19, 2014 11:33:00 AM

Phillies prospect catcher Cameron Rupp has been placed on the 7-day disabled list with Triple-A Lehigh Valley due to an oblique strain.

Rupp was off to a good start from a power perspective, hitting .231 (6-for-26) with four home runs and eight RBI nine games. Oblique injuries are tricky, so the 25-year-old could have to miss more than the minimum.

Phillies optioned C Cameron Rupp to Triple-A Lehigh Valley; reassigned C Sebastian Valle to minor league camp.

Rupp was very productive this spring, hitting .346 (9-for-26) with a home run, a double, and five RBI over 13 games, but he was never expected to make the Opening Day roster. Wil Nieves will serve as Carlos Ruiz's backup.

Cameron Rupp picked up the first two RBI of his MLB career, leading the Phillies to a 5-4 victory over the Braves on Saturday.

The 25-year-old backstop who is serving as additional catching depth in September, drew a rare start and responded with a 2-for-4 game, including a two-run single off Mike Minor in the first inning. He's unlikely to hold any fantasy value next season.
