Royals facing decision on backup catchers Erik Kratz, Drew Butera
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Royals will have to make a decision soon on what they will do with their backup catcher role, according to MLB.com.

Erik Kratz was pegged as the team's second catcher, even after the team acquired Drew Butera from the Angels. With Kratz currently on the DL, Butera has done well in his place, posting a .218 average with four runs scored this season. Manager Ned Yost will answer when he has Kratz available.

"I'm not going to answer those questions until Kratzie comes off the rehab," Yost said. "We'll make a determination then and do it like we always do. We'll get together as an organization and plot it out.

"Right now, we got two really good options and we have to decide the best option."

Yost really likes the defense Kratz brings to the plate.

"Butera's defense is really good. Kratzie's offensive capabilities, mostly his power, is very, very good," Yost said. "Butera's offense is good and he understands situations to do what you want your backup catcher to do -- he can bunt, go the other way, move runners. You got a runner on third base and [Butera] will find a way to get him in."
