Phillies catcher Erik Kratz has a medial meniscus tear in his left knee, which will require surgery. His recovery time will be known after the procedure.
Carlos Ruiz was back in the Phillies’ lineup Sunday after serving a 25-game suspension for testing positive for a banned stimulant late last season but that meant a catcher had to go.
The Phillies backup catching position is changing as Brian Schneider is shut down with an ankle sprain as Erik Kratz returns to the Phillies.
What grade does Carlos Ruiz and crew get?
