Just days before Opening Day, the Milwaukee Brewers catcher Erik Kratz has been traded to the San Francisco Giants.

In return, the Brewers acquired shortstop C.J. Hinojosa.

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.
