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.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: Smacks solo homer for only run Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz provided the only offense in Monday's 1-0 victory over the Giants, going 1-for-3 with a solo homer.

Kratz defied all odds with his fifth-inning bomb off Madison Bumgarner. The light-hitting backup is just 3-for-47 this season, so this was likely his most important offensive contribution of 2016.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: In Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz is in the lineup and batting eighth for Monday's game against the Giants.

Kratz is just 2-for-44 on the season and provides hardly any fantasy value or upside especially in a tough matchup with Madison Bumgarner.

Pirates' Erik Kratz: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz is in the lineup and batting eighth for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

Kratz is still searching for his first hit as a Pirate after going 0-for-3 in his debut against the Cardinals. He will have a tough matchup with Noah Syndergaard, and is unlikely to provide much fantasy value over the course of the season.

Angels' Erik Kratz: Dealt to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kratz was traded to the Pirates for cash considerations Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The Pirates have lost the services of primary catcher Francisco Cervelli for an extended period of time due to a broken hand, and Kratz will provide another veteran body behind the plate, potentially splitting time with Chris Stewart. However, he doesn't possess the offensive skill set to be worthy of ownership in the majority of fantasy leagues.
