CHICAGO (AP) — d list on Friday with a broken bone in his left hand Willie Stargell Jersey , sidelining the backup catcher for four to six weeks.The 25-year-old Caratini is scheduled for surgery on Monday. He had been a pleasant surprise for Chicago, batting .571 with a homer and five RBIs in six games.He got hurt on a swing during Thursday night’s 2-0 victory over Pittsburgh. A CT scan confirmed a fractured left hamate.“He was looking so good,” manager Joe Maddon said. “He was pretty upset yesterday. He was upset because he knew how well he was playing, he knew what was going on. It’s truly unfortunate. It’s just one of those injuries where — you’ve been around guys that have had them before, they’re very freakish. And they’re taking care of but they put you down a bit.”Taylor Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to replace Caratini on the roster. The 29-year-old Davis is a .278 hitter with three RBIs in 13 career games.The Cubs could look outside the organization for catching help while Caratini is out.“I wouldn’t doubt that we’re probably looking a little bit http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey ,” Maddon said before Chicago’s 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. “I would say that’s probably true, but for right now we’re really happy with Taylor. He’s really grown among the group.“He’s a very good receiver. The guys like him a lot for that. Offensively speaking, he comes up with some big knocks. Definitely, he’s at that point where it feels like he belongs, that he can do this.” PITTSBURGH (AP) — Jung Ho Kang is staying with the Pittsburgh Pirates.Pittsburgh and the third baseman agreed Thursday to a $3 million Roberto Clemente Jersey , one-year contract that includes $2.5 million in performance bonuses based on plate appearances: $625,000 each for 200, 300, 400 and 500. The deal was announced a week after Pittsburgh declined a $5.5 million club option for Kang, triggering a $250 http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey ,000 buyout.“We feel that bringing Jung Ho back in 2019 will make us better as he will have the ability to make a positive impact on our lineup,” general manager Neal Huntington said in a statement. “Competition and options are important to any organization and this signing provides us with both.”Kang was a star in his native South Korea when the Pirates signed him to an $11 million, four-year deal in January 2015. He finished third in NL Rookie of the Year balloting after hitting 15 homers and driving in 58 runs in 2015, when Pittsburgh won 98 games. It would be the high point of Kang’s time with the Pirates.The 31-year-old Kang didn’t play in the U.S. between September 2016 and June 2018 because of visa issues connected to three DUI arrests in South Korea. He made it back to the majors with Pittsburgh in September and went 2 for 6 during the final weekend of the season.As in Kang’s previous deal, the Pirates must allow him to become a free agent at the end of the contract.
