CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have placed backup catcher Victor Caratini on the 10-day injured list after he broke a bone in his left hand.
Caratini is expected to miss four to six weeks after he got hurt on a swing during Thursday night’s 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh. He is scheduled for surgery on Monday.
The 25-year-old Caratini had been a pleasant surprise for Chicago, batting .571 with a homer and five RBIs in six games.
Taylor Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Friday. The 29-year-old Davis is a .278 hitter with three RBIs in 13 career games.
