Rangers' Jack Kruger: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers designated Kruger for assignment Saturday.

The catcher has not appeared in a game for the Rangers after they claimed him off waivers May 9 from the Angels. Kruger, who has never had a major-league plate appearance, will go on waivers for the second time in a week.

Rangers' Jack Kruger: Catches on with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers claimed Kruger off waivers from the Angels on Sunday.

Texas appears comfortable with the two catchers on its 26-man active roster (Jose Trevino and Jonah Heim), so Kruger will likely report to Triple-A Round Rock as he joins a new organization. The 26-year-old backstop never had the opportunity to make his big-league debut for the Angels, but Kruger could be first in line for a call-up in Texas if Trevino or Heim is deactivated at any point this season. During his last minor-league campaign in 2019, Kruger cobbled together a .240/.300/.309 slash line over 380 plate appearances at Double-A Mobile.

Angels' Jack Kruger: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Kruger spent a single day on the big-league roster as the backup for Kurt Suzuki, with Max Stassi dealing with a concussion. He got to make his big-league debut off the bench but did not get into the game. Drew Butera was acquired in a trade with the Rangers in a corresponding move and will fill the backup catcher role.

Angels' Jack Kruger: Recalled to big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger had his contract selected by the Angels on Thursday.

Primary catcher Max Stassi (concussion) was placed on the injured list Thursday, so Kruger should take over the backup role. His last official game action came at Double-A Mobile in 2019, when he hit .240/.300/.309 across 380 plate appearances. Kurt Suzuki should see the majority of the time behind the plate for the Angels while Stassi is sidelined.

Angels' Jack Kruger: Part of 60-man squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger will be part of the Angels' 60-man roster.

Kruger, who is not on the 40-man roster, has seen action for the Angels in spring in each of the past four seasons but has yet to make his MLB debut. While Jason Castro and Max Stassi are expected to be the primary catchers when the regular season begins, Kruger could compete with Anthony Bemboom and Jose Briceno (shoulder) for the third catcher spot that travels on the taxi squad. The Angels may not be able to count on much offense at this stage of Kruger's development, however, as he posted just a .609 OPS at the Double-A level in 2019.

Angels' Jack Kruger: Monster day at dish
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kruger went 2-for-6 with a home run, a triple, two runs scored and six RBI in Monday's game against Texas.

Kruger didn't start the ballgame, but he left his mark by launching a three-run homer in the seventh inning and by lacing a triple to right field in the ninth to plate three more. He slashed .305/.328/.443 with four homers and 24 RBI at Double-A Mobile last season, where he figures to begin his 2019 campaign.
