by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres' Victor Caratini: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini is on the bench Tuesday against the Cubs, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com of reports.

He gets a day off following a solid, 2-for-3 performance Monday. Caratini's double against the Cubs was just his third extra-base hit in his last 18 games, and he's slugging a mere .357 on the season. Webster Rivas starts behind the dish and bats eighth Tuesday.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Strong showing versus former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs Monday in the Padres' 9-4 win over the Cubs. He also reached base when he was hit by a pitch.

After posting a .133 on-base average across his previous six contests, Caratini was able to get back on track against his former team. He'll continue to serve as the Padres' No. 1 catcher while Austin Nola likely remains on the injured list through late June, but Caratini's fantasy upside will be fairly suppressed due to his lack of power and low placement in the lineup.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Goes deep in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Makes history Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Brewers.

With the score 0-0 in the third inning and runners on the corners against Corbin Burnes, the Padres got aggressive and Caratini did something no San Diego catcher had ever done before in franchise history -- steal home. After Ha-Seong Kim took off for second base, Caratini headed home when the throw from Omar Narvaez went through and he just beat the return toss from Willy Adames. The Padres made life miserable for Narvaez all night by going 6-for-6 on steal attempts, allowing them to rack up offense despite only five hits and zero homers. Caratini's swipe was his second of the season but only the third of his career.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Slugs grand slam Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 1-for-2 with a grand slam and a walk in a 5-3 win over Colorado in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Caratini's blast in the sixth inning gave San Diego all the offense it needed to emerge with a win. The catcher has three home runs, 16 RBI, 10 runs scored and a stolen base through 27 games played this year. He's likely to split time with Austin Nola throughout the season, although Caratini is nearly guaranteed to play when Yu Darvish is on the mound.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Slugs second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh.

The backstop put the Padres on the board with 401-foot blast in the third inning. The homer was Caratini's second this season and accounted for his 12th RBI. He is slashing .217/.313/.333 overall.

Padres' Victor Caratini: To split time at catcher for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini will continue to get plenty of work behind the plate despite the return of Austin Nola, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

Nola may eventually emerge as the Padres' primary catcher, but in the short term he will essentially split time with Caratini behind the plate, according to manager Jayce Tingler. "Victor has played extremely well, he's done a great job with the staff. Also, Nola, having some issues with the finger and some swelling and things like that, I don't think we've got him built up to go four on, one-off. There's the opportunity to split some time and keep both guys active." So far this season, Caratini is slashing .230/.333/.311 with 11 RBI and a 30.6 percent strikeout rate.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Late addition to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini will start at catcher and bat seventh Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

The 27-year-old was originally positioned on the bench for Wednesday's series finale, but he'll end up receiving the start with Luis Campusano optioned to the alternate site to make room on the roster for Austin Nola (finger). Caratini has a .236/.317/.327 slash line and 34.9 percent strikeout rate through 20 games this season, and he should see a decrease in playing time with Nola back from the injured list and slated to take over primary catching duties.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Gets rest in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Padres' Victor Caratini: Secures win with late home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Giants.

Caratini had the only extra-base hit of the day for the Padres, and it came in a timely fashion as he connected on a first-pitch slider that landed just inside the right-field foul pole for a two-run homer to give them a 3-1 lead in the seventh. The former Chicago Cub has started out 4-for-13 with seven RBI in his first four games of the season and should continue to be the primary catcher with Austin Nola (finger) on the injured list.
