Post-Indians and Eventual Retirement
Midway through the 1994 season, Kramer was traded to the Cincinnati Reds for fellow minor leaguer John Hrusovsky. He would pitch the rest of that season for their then-AAA affiliate, the Indianapolis Indians, where he compiled a record of five wins and four losses with a 4.47 earned run average in 102.2 innings pitched.
Despite starting the 1995 season with a record of twelve wins and one loss and a 3.33 earned run average in 127.0 innings pitched for the Reds' then-AA affiliate, the Chattanooga Lookouts, Kramer was traded to the Detroit Tigers midway through the season, finishing out the season pitching for then-AAA affiliate Toledo.
Kramer spent the next three seasons after 1995 pitching for the Colorado Rockies, spending his time exclusively with AAA-affiliated Colorado Springs; this was a return of sorts for Kramer, as he had pitched for them a few seasons earlier, albeit as an Indians affiliate. After three years of lackluster numbers, he retired from baseball as a minor leaguer at the conclusion of the 1998 season, having never made it back to the major leagues since his 1993 rookie debut for Cleveland.^

“The eventual shapes of all our formless prayers,
This dark, this cabin of loose imaginings,
Wind, lake, lip, everything awaits
The slow unloosening of her underthings.”
—Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)
