  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Records two RBI

    Caratini went 0-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's extra-inning victory over the Reds.

    Caratini was held without a hit, but he did record multiple RBI in a game for the second time this season. Caratini has not made much contact of late, picking up just three hits over his last 37 at-bats, but he has gotten a fair share of opportunities, starting eight of Milwaukee's last 18 games. Starting catcher William Contreras opened the other 10 games behind the plate and also served as the designated hitter three times over that span.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Smacks homer

    Caratini went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-2 loss against the Dodgers.

    Caratini hit one of the two Milwaukee homers in the seventh inning. The backup catcher has two home runs on the season and an .867 OPS. He is William Contreras' backup but has produced at the plate when given at bats.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Hits first long ball of season

    Caratini went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 6-2 victory over the Tigers.

    After striking out in his first at-bat, Caratini smoked a two-run blast in the third to give Milwaukee a 5-0 lead, marking his first long ball of the season. He added a single his next time up, giving him two multi-hit games this year. Caratini continues to operate as the backup behind William Contreras and has appeared in only nine of the Brewers' first 25 games, but he's put up solid offensive numbers in his limited action.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Picks up four hits in loss

    Caratini went 4-for-4 with one run scored in Saturday's loss against the Padres.

    Carantini has gotten limited playing time to begin the season as the backup catcher, but the 29-year-old took advantage of a start Saturday against his former with the four-hit effort. With a career .673 OPS over parts of seven seasons, it's unlikely there are too many more of these games coming for Caratini for the rest of the campaign.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Enjoying another hot spring

    Caratini is 9-for-23 (.391) with a home run, three RBI and a 3:3 BB:K through 10 appearances this spring.

    Caratini owns a .932 OPS over 98 career exhibition games, so his hot spring is not particularly surprising. It has, though, ensured he will break camp as the backup catcher behind William Contreras.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Avoids arbitration

    Caratini signed a one-year, $2.8 million contract with the Brewers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Caratini has served as a backup catcher for the majority of his career. However, he's managed to top 300 plate appearances in each of his last two seasons while also grading out as a well above-average framer behind the dish. Entering 2023, Caratini figures to serve as the secondary catcher in Milwaukee behind William Contreras.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Drills three-run blast

    Caratini went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in Monday's 6-4 win over Colorado.

    Caratini launched the go-ahead shot during Milwaukee's four-run sixth inning. He snapped a 24-game homerless drought with his first long ball since Aug. 4 and ninth on the year. The 29-year-old catcher is now slashing .207/.317/.365 with 17 extra-base hits and 29 RBI through 259 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Back on bench versus righty

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

    Caratini went 2-for-12 with a run scored while starting in each of the Brewers' last three games, all of which came with left-handed pitchers taking the hill for the opposition. The lefty-hitting Omar Narvaez will step back in behind the plate Sunday against Cubs righty Adrian Sampson, so the switch-hitting Caratini looks like he'll fill a short-side platoon role moving forward.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Resting Wednesday

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

    Caratini will give way to Mario Feliciano behind the dish after catching in the first two games of the series. Though he remains atop the depth chart for now, Caratini could soon fade to the No. 2 role after top backstop Omar Narvaez (quadriceps) began a minor-league rehab assignment Tuesday.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Catches breather Sunday

    Caratini is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    After starting eight straight games, Caratini will get a chance to rest. Mario Feliciano will take Caratini's place behind the plate.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Three hits in loss

    Caratini went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Cardinals.

    Caratini was the only player on either team to record multiple hits. He also produced the Brewers' lone run, plating Luis Urias with a single in the seventh inning. Caratini entered Friday 0-for-10 across his last three games, though his starting role is not yet in doubt since Omar Narvaez (quadriceps) is a week away from beginning a rehab assignment. For the season, Caratini is slashing .233/.351/.413 with eight home runs, 22 RBI, 21 runs scored and seven doubles through 205 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Slugs eighth homer in loss

    Caratini went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Thursday's loss to the Pirates.

    Caratini saw himself elevated to the No. 1 catcher recently after Pedro Severino was designated for assignment and Omar Narvaez (quadriceps) was placed on the 10-day IL. The switch hitter wasted no time taking advantage of the increased role by cracking his eighth home run of the season, this one off Pirates starter Zach Thompson.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Steps into No. 1 catcher role

    Caratini will start at catcher and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    In less than 24 hours, Caratini has seen both of his primary challengers for playing time exit the Brewers' active roster. Prior to Wednesday's 8-7 loss, the Brewers designated No. 3 backstop Pedro Severino for assignment to clear space on the 40-man roster for starting pitcher Freddy Peralta, who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list. Then, No. 1 catcher Omar Narvaez exited Wednesday's contest with a left quadriceps strain, which resulted in him being placed on the 10-day injured list. Milwaukee called up Mario Feliciano from Triple-A Nashville to add depth at catcher, but the switch-hitting Caratini should be in line to see regular starts against both left- and right-handed pitching while Narvaez is on the shelf. Caratini draws walks at a high rate and makes contact at a decent clip for a catcher, but his average power and low placement in the batting order will likely render him a low-end fantasy option.

  • 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.

  • Brewers' Victor Caratini: Two hits including homer in loss

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

    Caratini singled in the seventh before launching a two-run shot off T.J. McFarland in the top of the ninth. 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.
