CHICAGO (AP) Rene Rivera got right down to business on his first day with the Chicago Cubs.

The veteran catcher joined the Cubs on Sunday and got the start for their series finale against the Toronto Blue Jays. Rookie Victor Caratini was optioned to Triple-A Iowa to make room on the 25-man roster.

"I'm ready any time they need me," Rivera said.
