Philadelphia Phillies C Erik Kratz has proved to be the starting catcher over C Brian Schneider with C Carlos Ruiz (foot) on the disabled list. Kratz is hitting .333 with 11 of his 15 hits going for extra bases. "He's durable. You can beat him up," manager Charlie Manuel said. "You can play him, muscle him around and everything, you can use him. You can treat him tough. That's a part I like about him."
