  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Blasts walkoff home run

    Caratini went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in Monday's 5-2 win over the Cubs.

    Caratini took Scott Effross deep for a three-run shot in the bottom of the 10th inning to defeat the Cubs. On the flip side, he struck out in his other four at-bats. The 28-year-old is up to seven homers this season with six of those coming in his last 20 appearances. Caratini is now slashing .245/.368/.464 with 17 RBI and 10 extra-base hits through 133 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Homers, reaches four times

    Caratini went 2-for-2 with a homer, a walk, a hit-by-pitch and two RBI in a 6-3 win Sunday in Cincinnati.

    Caratini reached base all four times he came to the plate and delivered a two-out, two-run homer in the fourth inning to give Milwaukee an early 3-0 lead. Over his last four starts, he is 8-for-13 with three extra-base hits and three walks. While he's primarily starting against left-handed pitching, the 28-year-old is making the most of his opportunities and has posted a career-high .843 OPS through 30 contests.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Returning to No. 2 role

    Caratini is not in the lineup for Friday's game at Washington.

    The 28-year-old served as Milwaukee's No. 1 backstop over past week with Omar Narvaez (illness) on the COVID-19 injured list, but Narvaez is back on the active roster and starting Friday. Caratini started six of seven games during that stretch and went 4-for-18 with a double, two walks and a run. He should continue to see playing time against left-handed pitching while Narvaez handles most of the starts against righties.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: On bench Saturday

    Caratini isn't starting Saturday against the Padres.

    Caratini started in the last two games and went 0-for-4 with a run, a walk and a strikeout. Alex Jackson will start behind the plate and bat ninth Saturday.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Swats go-ahead homer

    Caratini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 3-1 win over the Cubs in the second game of Monday's doubleheader.

    Caratini saw out the matinee contest, but he was in the lineup for the nightcap. He delivered his second homer in his last two games and his third of the year to put the Brewers ahead 2-1 in the fifth inning. The 28-year-old catcher is up to a .207/.299/.379 slash line with seven RBI, five runs scored and a double in 67 plate appearances. With Omar Narvaez hitting well, Caratini is unlikely to see much more than a backup role.

    Caratini went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Cardinals.

The homer was his second of the year while the two hits were his first since May 13, going 0-for-16 in his prior six games. Caratini remains the backup to Omar Narvaez at catcher, receiving only one or two starts a week.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Back from COVID-19 IL

    Caratini (undisclosed) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Sunday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    The 28-year-old landed on the COVID-19 IL on Tuesday and will rejoin the active roster after clearing MLB's testing protocols. Caratini should resume duties as the Brewers' No. 2 catcher behind Omar Narvaez and will likely see most of his starts against left-handed pitchers.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Heads to COVID-19 IL

    The Brewers announced Tuesday that Caratini was placed on the COVID-19 injured list, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    As a result of Caratini either testing positive for the virus or being deemed a close contact of an infected person, the Brewers made their first roster move since Opening Day. In a corresponding transaction, Milwaukee recalled Alex Jackson from Triple-A Nashville to serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Omar Narvaez while Caratini is away from the team.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Swats first homer

    Caratini went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

    Caratini provided all of Milwaukee's offense with his solo shot in the eighth inning. It was the first long ball for the backstop as a Brewer after he hit seven homers for the Padres last season. Caratini is slashing .308/.400/.615 on the campaign, and he has split time behind the plate with Omar Narvaez thus far.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Filling short-side platoon role

    Caratini will start at catcher and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Both Caratini and Omar Narvaez have each picked up three starts apiece, but a timeshare arrangement doesn't seem to be in the works between the two catchers. Instead, manager Craig Counsell seems to be favoring a platoon setup, with the switch-hitting Caratini entering the lineup against southpaw pitchers, while the lefty-hitting Narvaez plays against righties.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Traded to Milwaukee

    Caratini was traded from the Padres to the Brewers on Wednesday in exchange for Korry Howell and Brett Sullivan, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The Padres have plenty of options to serve as catching depth, so Caratini will head to Milwaukee to serve as the No. 2 backstop behind Omar Narvaez after Pedro Severino was issued an 80-game suspension Tuesday. Caratini appeared in 116 games for the Padres last year and slashed .227/.309/.323 with seven home runs, 39 RBI, 33 runs and two stolen bases.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Reaches deal without arbitration

    Caratini and the Padres agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal Tuesday, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.

    The contract means the two sides won't have to go through arbitration. Caratini will be part of a crowded catcher depth chart in San Diego this season, with Austin Nola, Jorge Alfaro and Luis Campusano all competing for playing time.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Caratini is not in the lineup Sunday against the Giants.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Tallies three hits in loss

    Caratini went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and three runs scored in Wednesday's 11-9 loss to the Dodgers.

    Caratini got the Padres on the board in the second inning with a solo home run off Max Scherzer that just barely cleared the wall in left. He notched two more base hits along the way and came around to score both times. Wednesday was the first three-hit effort of the year for the 28-year-old, who now has eight hits and four RBI over his last five games. Caratini is slashing .226/.310/.321 with seven homers, 38 RBI, 31 runs scored, two steals and 35:80 BB:K over 348 plate appearances this season.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: On bench for nightcap

    Caratini isn't starting the second game of Friday's twin bill against Atlanta.

    Caratini was behind the dish for the conclusion of the suspended game against Atlanta on Friday, but he'll head to the bench for the nightcap. Although the 28-year-old is in line to serve as the Padres' primary catcher with Austin Nola (thumb) out for the season, Webster Rivas will start behind the dish and bat seventh.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Logs three hits, drives in winner

    Caratini went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Giants.

    Caratini got the starting assignment with Yu Darvish on the mound for the Padres, and he responded with a game-winning RBI single in the 10th inning that snapped a 6-6 deadlock. Caratini also produced an RBI single in the first inning and finished with his first three-hit performance of the season. He is hitting just .221/.306/.311 on the year and is firmly behind Austin Nola in the No. 2 catching role.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Catching for Yu Darvish

    Caratini will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Angels.

    Caratini continues to serve as the personal catcher for Yu Darvish, who is on the mound Wednesday for the Friars. Beyond Darvish's starts, Caratini has struggled to pick up playing time behind No. 1 backstop Austin Nola since early August. Dating back to Aug. 1, Caratini has started in only 11 of the Padres' 32 games, slashing .175/.190/.225 with four runs and three RBI.

  • Padres' Victor Caratini: Stuck in timeshare

    Caratini is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Caratini will cede catching duties to Austin Nola in the series finale after going 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Saturday's 6-2 win. Since Nola was reinstated from the 10-day injured list July 22, Caratini has picked up seven starts at catcher to Nola's eight, so the Padres seem content to deploy a timeshare at the position.
