Kraus also had success in the Cape Cod League, finishing with a 3-1 record with a 3.60 ERA and 13 strikeouts through 20 innings pitched. He has good command of his pitches, only walking 14 in his 102.2 innings pitched with Portland, and he issued just one walk in his 20 innings pitched with Hyannis in the Cape Cod League.

Kraus is on the smaller side and doesn't throw hard. He enjoys giving up a lot of hits (but not homers) and not walking many.

Promoted to Salem:

Kyle Kraus made his High-A ball debut on Monday night, getting the start in the second game of the doubleheader for Salem. The 23-year-old allowed a run on four hits to Winston-Salem while striking out three. If Kraus made one mistake, it was a pitch to White Sox top prospect and 2012 first-round pick Courtney Hawkins, who sent one of the starter’s offerings over the left field wall to lead off the fourth inning.


Kraus had been pitching in relief for the Greenville Drive, but went four innings for Salem in his first start of the year, his longest appearance of the season. In 13 games with the Drive, Kraus had gone 2-0 with a 1.96 ERA and one save. Kraus exhibited excellent control in Greenville, striking out 20 while only walking two batters in 18 1/3 innings. The right-hander was drafted in the seventh round by the Red Sox out of the University of Portland in 2012.
