Kratz spent parts of three seasons with the Phillies, filling in as the team's starting catcher at the outset of 2013 due to the suspension of Carlos Ruiz. In 120 games with the Phils, Kratz hit .220 with 18 home runs and 53 RBIs. He appeared in the team's postcard sets in 2012 and 2013, and he earned a Phillies card in series two of the 2013 Topps set. Kratz's departure seemed imminent once it was reported on Tuesday afternoon that the Phillies had reached a deal with back-up catcher Wil Nieves. (That deal isn't official yet.)
Rasmussen joined the organization in August in the Michael Young trade with the Dodgers. He leaves the organization with no cardboard proof of his time as Phillies property.
