Kratz Elects Free Agency

Catcher Erik Kratz has elected to become a free agent instead of accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Kratz. 37, played just four games in the organization, all of them at the major league level since he was acquired from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for cash.

The backstop has plated four 15 teams in the minors over a 15-year career.  In 964 minor league games, he hit .257/.333/.442 with 215 doubles, five triples, and 123 home runs.  In addition, he has played in 228 major league games since making his MLB debut on July 17, 2010.  In the majors, he has hit .203/.250/.366.

The Yankees acquired Kratz on August 31 due to Kyle Higashioka being on the disabled list at the time.
