Cubs' Victor Caratini: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini is starting at catcher and batting ninth in Tuesday's game against the Royals.

With regular catcher Willson Contreras getting a breather after three straight starts, Caratini will slot in to face Kansas City right-hander Brad Keller. The 24-year-old has a mediocre .634 OPS this season with no home runs and 10 RBI in 45 games, so he hasn't moved the needle much in fantasy leagues.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Records three hits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

Caratini got the start for Willson Contreras and made it count, as he recorded his first three-hit game of the season. Contreras figures to catch most days, but Caratini will spell him on occasion, and the 24-year-old could also see some time at first base and in the outfield for the Cubs in the second half.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Starting at catcher Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Saturday's game against the Reds.

Regular catcher Willson Contreras is getting a breather after five straight starts, pushing Caratini into the lineup. On the season, the 24-year-old is slashing .254/.315/.299 and he's still searching for his first home run.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Recalled, enters lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was recalled from Triple-A Iowa and will start at first base and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

Though he'll see work in the field in his first game action with the Cubs since May 22, Caratini projects to see the bulk of his time behind the plate during his latest stint with Chicago. Caratini will take over as the backup catcher behind Willson Contreras after Chris Gimenez was designated for assignment Wednesday in a corresponding move.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

Chris Gimenez was called up and will take over the backup role behind Willson Contreras. Caratini didn't do much during his latest stint in Chicago (.262 average, .046 ISO in 69 plate appearances), but there is certainly still hope for the 24-year-old long term. He hit .342/.393/.558 with 10 homers in 83 games with Iowa last season.
