    • Cubs' Victor Caratini: Starting again Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Caratini is starting at catcher and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Reds. Willson Contreras will be out of the starting lineup for the second day in a row, so Caratini will start behind the plate once again. The 25-year-old went 0-for-2 with two walks in Friday's loss, and he's slashing .400/.545/.640 across 25 at-bats this season.

    • Caratini (hand) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com 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.

    • Caratini (hand) will probably be activated from the 10-day injured list in the next day or two, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. Caratini has appeared in nine minor-league rehab games thus far, going 8-for-30 (.267) with a pair of doubles and a 3:4 BB:K in those contests. He should reclaim his role as the team's backup catcher once healthy, likely sending Taylor Davis back to the minors. Prior to landing on the shelf, Caratini was 8-for-14 with a homer, three doubles and five RBI in six games.

    • Caratini (hand) went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in a rehab appearance with Triple-A Iowa on Monday. Caratini has now made three appearances at Triple-A after concluding a five-game rehab stint with Low-A South Bend. It's unclear how many more games Caratini may need before rejoining the big league club, but it would appear he's getting close.

    • Cubs' Victor Caratini: Beginning rehab stint
      By RotoWire Staff

      Caratini (hand) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Low-A South Bend on Monday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Caratini has been sidelined since undergoing surgery to repair his fractured hand in mid-April. It remains to be seen how many rehab games the backstop will need to appear in before being cleared to return, but this is a step in the right direction.
