Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Struggling at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts against the Brewers on Sunday.

The rookie has three hits in 25 September at-bats, striking out 15 times. Kramer was thought to be a leading contender for a bench spot to open 2019, but he's looked overmatched. Fellow infielder Pablo Reyes may have moved ahead of him in the pecking order. With infielders Jordy Mercer and Josh Harrison both likely to leave the team this winter, opportunity remains for Kramer, but he'll need to rediscover the stroke which helped him to slash .311/.365/.492 at Triple-A in 2018.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Feels the breeze Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Kramer never struck out much in the minors until he began hitting for power. He whiffed 127 times in 476 at-bats for Triple-A Indy in 2018. Despite making only 19 starts at third base in his minor league career, Kramer played third Wednesday and acquitted himself nicely. He's 3-for-17 with three singles and a walk since being recalled.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Set to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer will make his first major league start Friday against Miami.

The infielder popped out to shallow right field in his first career at-bat Wednesday. Kramer, who bats left-handed, will face righty Dan Straily, against whom lefties are hitting .262 with an .823 OPS. Kramer is likely Pittsburgh's most promising September recall from an offensive standpoint, especially with outfielder Austin Meadows traded away to Tampa Bay.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Earns promotion to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates recalled Kramer from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

General manager Neal Huntington said on his Sunday radio show it wouldn't be fair to recall Kramer if he was only going to play sporadically. At the same time, Huntington also said that Colin Moran and Adam Frazier will see extensive time at third base and second base in September, the two positions Kramer plays. Kramer had an OPS breakout season in 2017 (.850 OPS) and has continued hitting this year. He slashed .311/.365/.492 with 15 homers and 13 stolen bases at Triple-A. While he probably won't see consistent action, he'll likely get an opportunity to show off his skills for 2019.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Records five hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer went 5-for-5 with a double and a stolen base for Triple-A Indianapolis in its 10-3 win over Gwinnett on Thursday.

It's the second career five-hit performance for Kramer, who pushed his season average up to .294 with the stellar day at the dish. The 2015 second-round pick was lauded mainly for his ability to spray the ball to all fields coming out of UCLA, but Kramer has tapped into more power than anticipated in his fourth season of pro ball. He has already tallied 11 home runs and 37 extra-base hits on the campaign, surpassing his totals in both categories from each of the past three years.
