Blue Jays' Erik Kratz: Signs minor-league contract with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Katz, who's played for the Astros and Pirates already this season, will head to Triple-A Buffalo. He's struggled mightily at the plate all year, as he's just 8-for-85 (.094) with 32 strikeouts. Kratz was signed to simply add to Toronto's catching depth, so it's unlikely that Kratz will see much, if any, time with the big club this season

Pirates' Erik Kratz: DFA'd by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz was designated for assignment Tuesday.

With the Pirates in need of 40-man space, Kratz was DFA'd and he'll now be subject to waivers. If he passes through unclaimed, then he'll likely wind up at Triple-A Indianapolis after making 18 appearances for the big league club on the season.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: Comes through with big knock Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz broke a 3-3 tie Sunday with an infield single against the A's.

He's batting .085 (6-for-71) in 2016, split between Houston and Pittsburgh. Kratz, who started both Saturday and Sunday, could see additional playing time leading up to the All-Star break if Chris Stewart needs more rest or goes on the DL. The Pirates claimed catcher Eric Fryer off waivers Sunday to serve on their major league roster.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: Drives in two Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Kratz continues to hit better since adjusting the prescription on his contacts, with all three of his RBI this season coming in the past week. Still, his .069/.069/.172 line suggests the catcher shouldn't be on your radar except in the deepest of leagues.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: Better vision, better hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz attributed his solo homer Monday to a recent prescription adjustment to his contact lenses, 93.7 The Fan Pittsburgh reports.

The catcher acknowledged that he's not a great hitter, but that he's better than what he's shown in 2016. Kratz could start another couple games while Chris Stewart recovers from a balky knee.
