He had an RBI double Thursday night, but was injured during that at-bat:This is not good news; hamate fractures can take a long time to heal. And Caratini hit an RBI double in that at-bat after he injured his hand! In the meantime, the Cubs have recalled Taylor Davis from Triple-A Iowa:Davis isn’t really a long-term solution at backup catcher. The Cubs will likely have to go out and try to find a team willing to trade someone Cory Spangenberg Jersey
, and that cost might be high considering the Cubs don’t have much leverage at this point. All the catching free agents from this past offseason either signed with someone, or retired.Hopefully Caratini’s injury is not serious and he can return after only the minimum 4-6 weeks on the injured list. As always, we await further developments. Ah, yes. That’s why we kept three catchers on the roster."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodSnake EDTShareTweetShareShareSnake Bytes 3/31:Reality CheckKelvin Kuo-USA TODAY SportsArizona Diamondbacks 5, Los Angeles Dodgers... well... yeah[Arizona Sports] Zack Godley, D-backs’ pitching staff roughed up in loss to Dodgers - Why an infielder would let Zack Godley field a bunt and attempt to throw to a base is beyond me. Old habits die hard I suppose. The Diamondbacks desperately needed Godley to pitch into the later innings after Friday’s six hour marathon Eric Hosmer Jersey
, but instead he was blasted for eight runs, seven earned, over 5.1 innings. He also hasn’t learned how to stop falling off of the mound, so that’s cool. Los Angeles also smacked a pair of solo home runs off of him as well.[AZ Central] Dodgers rip Diamondbacks again to take lead in season-opening series - The game didn’t start out as terrible as it finished, but it was short lived. Jarrod Dyson hit a leadoff home run that just barely squeaked over the wall in right field. Alex Avila, Adam Jones Jose Pirela Jersey

Jake Lamb at third. Eduardo Escobar at second. Ketel Marte in center. John Ryan Murphy DFA’d. Make it happen.[AZ Central] A.J. Pollock: Diamondbacks’ qualifying offer made for ‘a really tough decision’ - A.J. Pollock’s decision to decline the D’backs $17.9 million qualifying offer was likely more difficult for him than we give credit. He’d hardly been a beacon of health during his time in Arizona, so there was no guarantee he was going to receive an offer such as the deal he ultimately signed with the Dodgers. Pollock could have the a hefty guaranteed one year deal in the hopes he’d have a fully healthy season and “reload” his value.[D’backs.com] Souza set to undergo surgery on left knee - Best wishes to Steven Souza Jr. who, quite frankly, needs to have his knee reattached. His surgery is scheduled for Tuesday in Cincinatti and will be performed by Dr. Timothy Kremchek.Around the League[NBC Sports] Bryce Harper hits monster home run as Phillies’ bats explode again - Fans in Philadelphia are having a ball after their huge free agent acquisition Kevin Kiermaier Jersey
