Victor Caratini
Name: Victor Manuel Caratini
Born: Aug 17, 1993 in Coamo, Puerto Rico
High School: Puerto Rico Baseball Academy, Gurabo, P.R.
College: Miami Dade JC
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 215 lbs
Bats: B / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (65th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2013 (signed for $800,000)
Caratini attended the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and spent his freshman year at Southern, though he was ineligible. He transferred to Miami Dade and helped the Sharks to the Florida state juco tournament. He was recruited as a third baseman and brings a sound lefthanded bat, hitting .377/.467/.549 this season and showing consistent gap power. Caratini has good hands that work at the plate and in the field, and he has improved his stock by playing more at catcher. If he goes out in the first five rounds, it will be as a backstop. At 6-foot-1, 210 pounds, he has a strong enough build for the spot and his good hands have helped him make the transition. He has above-average arm strength and has proved a quick learner on the fundamentals of catching. He could be drafted as high as the third round.
