Cubs' Victor Caratini: Returns to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was called up by the Cubs on Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Caratini may not see much playing time moving forward, even with Willson Contreras (hamstring) shelved for the time being. Alex Avila will likely get most of the starts in Contreras' absence while Caratini battles with Rene Rivera for an occasional nod. Throughout 17 games with the club this season, the 24-year-old Caratini is hitting .268/.318/.415 with one home run and two RBI.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

The Cubs claimed Rene Rivera off waivers Saturday to serve as the backup catcher, so naturally Caratini was optioned as a corresponding move. He has hit .268/.318/.415 with one home run in 44 big-league plate appearances in his rookie campaign. Look for him to be back up when rosters expand in September, but his playing time will be extremely limited.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Recalled from Iowa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Friday.

Caratini was down for just 10 days, but he's back as the Cubs need a replacement for the injured Willson Contreras (hamstring). He owns an outstanding .344/.387/.557 batting line over 76 games for Triple-A Iowa and is an intriguing prospect, but expect the Cubs to give the majority of the playing time at catcher to veteran Alex Avila. If Avila slumps and Caratini can show his power stroke translates, though, he could earn more significant playing time.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Caratini didn't play much in his first cup of coffee with the north siders, but he certainly made the most of his few chances, ripping three of his five hits for extra bases. However, he was a redundancy on the roster with Alex Avila arriving to the team via trade, so the 23-year-old will head back to the minors for further development. Caratini will likely find his way back to the majors when rosters expand in September, but he'll be hard-pressed to find much playing time with Willson Contreras, Avila and Kyle Schwarber already ahead of him in the catching pecking order.

Cubs' Victor Caratini: Hits first MLB home run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caratini went 1-for-4 with his first career home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

Caratini is the primary backup to catcher Willson Contreras, but he found himself getting the start at first base in place of Anthony Rizzo in this one. The 23-year-old doesn't really play enough to move the fantasy needle in most leagues, but he might be worth an occasional flier in daily leagues when he finds himself in the lineup.
