Astros' Erik Kratz: Makes first big league pitching appearance in blowout loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz, 35, made his first big league pitching appearance during Tuesday's 11-1 blowout loss to Seattle, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits during his lone inning of relief.

Short on relievers coming into the game, the Astros were able to save their bullpen some work and use Kratz in relief when the game was out of reach in the eighth inning. The backup catcher threw 17 of his 27 pitches for strikes and even mixed in a few knuckleballs during his appearance.

Astros' Erik Kratz: Records first hit of the season Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts before he was removed for a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning during Monday's loss to Seattle.

Kratz reached on a bunt single to third in the fifth inning for his first hit of the season in 17 at-bats. The veteran's time in Houston may soon be coming to an end, however, as Max Stassi (wrist) is expected to return in May and Evan Gattis will return to action behind the plate in the coming days.

Astros' Erik Kratz: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees.

Kratz was acquired from the Padres in late March and will now make his first start at catcher for the Astros in order to give regular starter Jason Castro a day off. The 35-year-old will hit ninth and owns just a .217 career batting average, making his fantasy value slim to none.

Astros' Erik Kratz: Traded to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erik Kratz has been traded to Houston for Dan Straily, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Katz spent the 2015 season bouncing between the minors and major leagues, playing for multiple teams. At 35-years-old, holding a career .218 average in the majors, the catcher will likely serve as organizational depth for Houston during the 2016 season.

Padres' Erik Kratz: Signs with the Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Erik Kratz signed a minor league contract with the San Diego Padres on Friday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Kratz spent time with four different clubs last season, but struggled to catch on anywhere as he hit a combined .256 in the minors with a slash line of .192/.214/.269 in 16 major league games in 2015. At 35 years old, he'll serve as organizational depth behind the plate for the Padres.
