Chicago Cubs right-handed pitcher Justin Grimm and backup rookie catcher Victor Caratini were sent down to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday according to multiple reports.
The two teammates were sent down to Iowa to make room for newcomers Justin Wilson and Alex Avila who the team acquired in a trade from Detroit. Wilson will wear No. 37 and Avila will wear No. 13 in case you are into jersey numbers.
In 2017, Grimm has a 5.18 ERA, 42 strikeouts, and 1.28 WHIP in 40 innings of work. However, in July he had a 7.94 ERA with 1.85 WHIP in 11 innings.
Caratini had limited time with the ballclub with 26 at-bats batting .192 with a memorable game-winning homer, two doubles, two RBI, and .250 on-base percentage.
Both of the demoted players should return to the Cubs when the rosters expand to a 40-man squad in September.
