It’s roundly expected that the Chicago Cubs will add a veteran back-up catcher at some point in the next 24 hours, and, if that happens, current back-up Victor Caratini will probably head back to AAA Iowa to continue his development as a future big league catcher.

Great way to fill in for Anthony Rizzo, eh? Known more for his bat control and doubles power, Caratini can crush ’em in the right spot, though. And that was no cheapy:
