Caratini (hand) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jesse Rogers of reports. He's starting at first base and hitting sixth against the Reds.

As expected, Caratini is back with the big club after completing a nine-game rehab assignment, going 8-for-30 with a pair of doubles and a 3:4 BB:K in those contests. The backup catcher will look to pick up where he left off prior to landing on the IL, as he was 8-for-17 with a homer and three doubles in six games before suffering a broken hand. Taylor Davis was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.
