Catcher Erik Kratz‘ LONG rehab assignment finally came to an end on Tuesday night with Triple-A Omaha (it began on May 22nd).
In 15 games with Omaha (56 games), Kratz went 12-for-56 (.214) with two doubles and four home runs. He drove in 12 and scored seven runs. He also walked five times compared to nine strikeouts. He had three multi-hit games.
The KC Royals announced today that they reinstated him from the DL and then designated him for assignment. I highly doubt he will return to the Storm Chasers, as there are a few teams looking for a solid backup catcher (ie Boston).
Best of luck to the all-around good guy!
