Brewers' Erik Kratz: Re-ups with Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz agreed to a one-year contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration.

Kratz will return to Milwaukee after enjoying somewhat of a resurgence with the Brewers in 2018. After being acquired from the Yankees in May, the veteran backstop hit .236/.380/.355 with six homers and 23 RBI across 67 games. He'll most likely serve as the backup to Manny Pina in 2019.

Kratz is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Kratz will once again give way to Manny Pina behind the dish with Gio Gonzalez lined up to pitch for the Brewers. The backstop has appeared in all three games this series, going 1-for-7 with a walk and a run scored.

Brewers' Erik Kratz: Not in Game 1 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz is out of Friday's lineup for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

Manny Pina will catch Gio Gonzalez after Kratz started the final two games of Milwaukee's series against Colorado. Look for Kratz to set up behind the plate for Game 2 on Saturday with Wade Miley on the bump.

Brewers' Erik Kratz: Makes key contributions in NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's series-clinching victory over the Rockies.

Kratz played a folk hero role for the Brewers over the final two games of their first-round series, as the 38-year-old tallied a total of five hits while kicking in two runs in Game 2. As they did for the bulk of the second half, Kratz and Manny Pina figure to share the catching duties for the Brewers the rest of the way.

Brewers' Erik Kratz: On bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Kratz started the last three games behind the plate and had a key two-RBI single in Saturday's 6-5 win, but he otherwise went 0-for-11 with three strikeouts. The 38-year-old has a .241/.285/.362 slash line in 199 at-bats as the Brewers enter their final game of the regular season. Manny Pina will start behind the plate and bat seventh.
