Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Impresses during spring stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates sent Kramer to minor-league camp Thursday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Kramer went 5-for-16 in Grapefruit League play, including five extra-base hits and five walks. The infielder saw a surge of power for Double-A Altoona before breaking his hand last summer, slashing .297/.380/.500 in 202 at-bats. With his increased offensive production, the second baseman has forced his way into Pittsburgh's plans, especially given Josh Harrison's uncertain future with the organization..

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Recovered from broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer (hand) was activated from the 7-day disabled list and appeared in four games for Double-A Altoona during the Eastern League playoffs, going 1-for-13 in those contests.

Kramer had been sidelined for three months with a fractured right hand, which he suffered when he was struck by a pitch in a June 10 game. After Altoona clinched the league championship, Kramer reported to the Pirates' spring training facility in Bradenton, Fla. to get in further swings ahead of the Arizona Fall League, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports. While Kramer looked rusty for Altoona after the lengthy absence, he could elevate his stock in dynasty formats next spring with a strong showing in AFL play. The lefty-hitting Kramer has impressed the Pirates with his strong plate discipline since he was selected out of UCLA in the second round of the 2015 first-year player draft, though it's come with a paucity of power, as the second baseman has amassed only 10 home runs in 888 career minor-league at-bats.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Will not return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer (broken hand) will not play again this season for Double-A Altoona, Cory Giger of the Altoona Mirror reports.

A pitch broke his hand in early June, putting an end to what had been a promising start to his 2017 season. Kramer hit .297/.380/.500 with six home runs and seven steals in 202 at-bats.

Pirates' Kevin Kramer: Pitch broke hand in June
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kramer broke his hand in June after being hit by a pitch, J.J. Cooper of Baseball America reports.

Kramer was having a really solid year with Double-A Altoona before being placed on the disabled list June 11, batting .297 with six home runs to earn on a spot in the Eastern League All-Star Game. He hasn't been able to receive any action since then, a tough blow for a young prospect who had been exceeding expectations before the injury.
