Yankees' Erik Kratz: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz's contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday.

He will struggle to see much playing time this month, but most teams add a third catcher in September, and Kratz was the Yankees' choice to fill that role. Kratz was only acquired by the Yankees on Thursday, and had a .270/.359/.472 slash line with 13 home runs in 86 games with the Indians' Triple-A affiliate prior to the trade.

Yankees' Erik Kratz: Traded to Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz was dealt to the Yankees on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.

Kratz will provide depth at the catching position for the Yankees, especially following the suspensions of Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine, which will eventually need to go into effect. The 37-year-old hasn't played in a major-league game this year, but is hitting .270/.359/.472 with 13 home runs and 37 RBI during 86 games with Triple-A Colombus. The Yankees will need to make a move in order to get Kratz on the 40-man roster, but expect him to be up with the big-league team in the near future.

Indians' Erik Kratz: Fails to win Opening Day roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians informed Kratz on Sunday that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster.

The Tribe will go with Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez as their two backstops to begin the season, which will likely force Kratz to head to Triple-A Columbus to begin the campaign. The 36-year-old received 87 plate appearances with the Astros and Pirates last season, slashing just .094/.105/.153.

Indians' Erik Kratz: Heading to Cleveland on NRI deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kratz signed a minor league contract with the Indians on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Kratz bounced around the majors and minors last season, spending time with the Astros, Angels, Pirates, and Blue Jays. However, he failed to produce virtually anything at the plate anywhere, as his .094 batting average in the majors and sub-.200 average in the minors prove. Between this lack of productivity and his age (currently 36 years old) will likely keep him in an organizational depth role as the Indians' other catching prospects come through the pipeline.
