Cubs activate C Victor Caratini, sidelined by hand injury
Caratini started at first base Thursday, filling in while Anthony Rizzo got another day to recover from a stiff back.
Caratini broke a bone in his left hand during a swing on April 12 and had surgery three days later to remove the hamate. He played nine games at Triple-A Iowa on a rehabilitation assignment.
Chicago optioned catcher Taylor Davis to Iowa. He went 3 for 15 with a homer in six games with the Cubs.
