Pirates To Promote Erik Kratz

The Post-Gazette reports. Since Jason Jaramillo was demoted a few days ago, this was expected. Kratz has played really well for Indianapolis, .296/.396/.550, easily his best showing at AAA. He has looked like a functional backup catcher for a couple of years now, so it's nice to see him finally make it to the bigs, particularly since he's 30 and has been in the minors for eight years.
