OAKLAND -- The Blue Jays could be on the verge of returning to their three-catcher system that worked so well for the club earlier this season.
Toronto manager John Gibbons hinted on Thursday afternoon that veteran catcher Erik Kratz could rejoin the Blue Jays at some point during their four-game series in Oakland.
"We definitely could," Gibbons said of adding Kratz to the roster. "I thought it worked pretty well when we had it ... I can't say if it's going to happen, but ideally [yes] because I thought it worked out pretty good."
Kratz's future could be directly tied to the health status of Colby Rasmus. If the Blue Jays determine that Rasmus only needs a day or two of rest to recover from a right wrist injury, then the club likely could drop an outfielder to make room for Kratz.
