Player Notes
Mariners signed C Erik Kratz to a minor league contract.

Advice: The veteran backstop elected free agency after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox earlier in the week. While he'll begin at Triple-A Tacoma, he should work his way up to the big league club in relatively short order.

Robert Murray of BaseballEssential.com reports that the Braves and Mariners are the "frontrunners" to sign Erik Kratz.

Advice: Kratz elected free agency on Monday after clearing waivers. His defense isn't great, but the 35-year-old has some pop and wouldn't be a bad backup catcher for someone.

Erik Kratz has elected to become a free agent.

Advice: He went unclaimed on waivers after the Red Sox designated him for assignment last week. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports suggests the Mariners could be interested. The 35-year-old has appeared in four major league games this season, all with Kansas City.

Red Sox sent C Erik Kratz outright to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Advice: The 35-year-old was designated for assignment earlier in the week by the Red Sox, just a few days after being claimed off waivers from the Royals. He'll continue to provide organizational catching depth for the Red Sox.
