Kratz To Finally Make Big Leagues

As expected, catcher Erik Kratz will take Jason Jaramillo’s spot on the roster, the Post-Gazette reports. This is cool – not only does Kratz deserve the promotion, but he’ll be making his big-league debut as a 30-year-old, after spending eight years in the minors. As you might have guessed from that last sentence, he isn’t exactly a prospect, but there’s no reason he can’t make a nifty short-term backing catcher.
