Phils Call Up Catcher Kratz

The Phillies have made a move, adding a right-handed bat to their bench now.

Erik Kratz has been called up by the Phillies, meaning someone will be heading to the DL very shortly. A betting man would put his money on Jim Thome, who has been deactivated the past two games. UPDATE: Thome was placed on the DL this morning with lower back tightness.

Kratz has three home runs and a .333 average with the IronPigs this season. He will add a right-handed bat to the bench, which usually takes a blow in that area with Ty Wigginton getting a lot of playing time and John Mayberry struggling.
