Yankees bring back free agent catcher Erik Kratz on minor league deal

The Yankees have brought back Erik Kratz and signed him to a minor-league deal, MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reported Friday morning.

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.

With Austin Romine signing with the Detroit Tigers this offseason, that left Gary Sanchez and Kyle Higashioka as the only two catchers left on their roster.
