2021 Fantasy Outlook
Caratini took advantage of the National League's new designated hitter rule in 2020 and appeared in 44 of the Cubs' 60 games, but he didn't translate the playing time into much power. He hit just one home run in 116 at-bats after launching 11 long balls in 244 at-bats in 2019. As a result, Caratini's slugging percentage fell from .447 in 2019 to .328 last season. While the offensive production wasn't there, Caratini did serve as Yu Darvish's personal catcher all season, and the latter turned in a dominant campaign. Consequently, those two will likely pair up again in 2021 after they were both sent west to the Padres in a December trade. Should the National League bring back the DH for another season, he could slot back in there as well. If Caratini finds his stroke from 2019, he could post a decently productive year.
