Brewers trade for catcher Victor Caratini
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- After the news of Brewers catcher Pedro Severino being suspended for 80 games due to a positive drug test, the team has traded catcher Brett Sullivan and outfielder Korry Howell in exchange for Padres catcher Victor Caratini and cash.
Last season, Caratini hit .227 with 7 home runs and 39 RBI's in 116 games with San Diego.
The 28-year-old catcher spent the 2021 season with the Padres after playing his first four years in the majors in the NL Central with the Chicago Cubs.
Brett Sullivan signed with the Brewers back in November after spending his first seven seasons in the minors with Tampa Bay.
In 2021, Howell racked up a .244 batting average with 16 homers and 51 RBI's in 97 games while spending some time in both Class-A Wisconsin and Double-A Biloxi.
