In return, the Brewers acquired shortstop C.J. Hinojosa.
I appreciate the love and support I got from MKE. You are loyal fans and you welcomed me in with open arms and me and family will never forget that. Thank you for giving me all you had because I gave it all for you and my teammates.

The veteran catcher was traded to the Brewers in 2018.
Kratz became a fan favorite for being one of the oldest,39, to make a post-season debut as a catcher.
