Giants' Erik Kratz: Out with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Friday.

The move was made retroactive to May 1, so Kratz could be eligible to return as soon as May 11. He now faces competition for the Giants' backup catcher job, however, as Stephen Vogt's contract was purchased Wednesday. Tyler Beede was called up in a corresponding move.

Giants' Erik Kratz: Raps second double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz started and went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Nationals.

Kratz made his first start since Apr. 12, but he generally sees two starts per week with the occasional pinch-hit appearance. The 38-year-old's limited playing time and slow start (.136/.239/.227) make him tough to roster in even deeper two-catcher leagues.

Giants' Erik Kratz: Grabs start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz will start behind the plate and bat eighth in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Kratz will make his fourth start of the season to give Buster Posey the day off for the series finale. The 38-year-old is hitless through his first 10 plate appearances with the Giants, but has walked once and been hit by two pitches.

Giants' Erik Kratz: Making first start of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz will bat eighth and catch Friday's game against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

With Buster Posey set to man first base, Kratz will have an opportunity to make his first start as a San Francisco Giant. The veteran backstop hit .236 with six homers and 23 RBI in 67 games for Milwaukee last season.

Giants' Erik Kratz: Named backup catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz will be the Giants' backup catcher, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Kratz's role was initially unclear when the Giants traded for him Sunday, with Aramis Garcia also on the team. Garcia could still make the roster as well, as he can cover first base, but Kratz is in line for the second-most starts at home plate behind Buster Posey. The Giants will likely look to get Posey out from the squat on a fairly regular basis in his age-31 season, but the presence of Garcia means that there's no guarantee Kratz will have a workload larger than a typical backup backstop.
