Victor Caratini catching Thursday for Brewers

Milwaukee Brewers catcher Victor Caratini is in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Zach Thompson and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

The Brewers placed Omar Narvaez on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a quad strain and they designated Pedro Severino for assignment on Wednesday, so Caratini is the club's top backstop for now. He will catch for Brandon Woodruff and hit seventh on Thursday afternoon. Mario Feliciano was called up from Triple-A Nashville to replace Narvaez on the roster.

Caratini is averaging 7.5 FanDuel points per game this season. Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Brewers’ implied total (4.79) is tied for second-highest in the majors on Thursday.
