This is a nice little story and a guy many of you probably don't know a lot about. But I'll tell you something. He'll prove important in 2020.

Erik Kratz was actually in the Yankees organization before, with Scranton.  Well now, because Austin Romine is gone, because Gary Sanchez is lazy and because Kyle Higashioka is the Yankees back up and alittle inexperienced... this gives us some security.

Kratz has signed a minor league deal with the Yanks. SNY writes:

"Kratz, a 39-year-old catcher who previously had stints with the Yankees and their Triple-A affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre between 2017 and 2019, returns to a team that is in need of potential catching down the line. 

Kratz spent seven seasons in the minor leagues before making his MLB debut in 2010 for the Pirates. Since then, he has bounced back and forth between the minors and majors, and has played for eight organizations in his career -- including multiple stints with the Pirates, Phillies and Yankees."

Yay us! (Sarcasm can be fun.)
