Pirates | Francisco Cervelli with a breather

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:52:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. C Chris Stewart draws the start and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has held his own against right-handers in a small sample size as the backup catcher this year, going 15-for-53 (.283) with no homers and six RBI. He'll remain a weak FantasyScore catching option, but he can save you plenty of cap space.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli out Thursday

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 15:39:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is out of the starting lineup Thursday, June 18, against the Chicago White Sox. C Chris Stewart will start behind the plate and hit ninth in the order against RHP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting a surprising .290 through 66 plate appearances this season, but he hasn't offered much else in terms of fantasy production. Stewart is an option for those electing to punt the catcher position, but he's unlikely to offer much more than a single or two, in a best case scenario.

Pirates | Chris Stewart catching Saturday

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:08:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Chris Stewart will spot start for C Francisco Cervelli at catcher and bat eighth against the Philadelphia Phillies Saturday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has played sparingly this year, tallying just six runs batted in in 59 at-bats. He is at minimum price on FantasyScore, but it would only make sense to invest in Stewart if you want to spend more at other positions.

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 08:57:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. C Chris Stewart will take his place in the lineup and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .296 in limited playing time this season and could be a cheap option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli sitting out

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:38:43 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Friday, May 22. C Chris Stewart is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) in all formats Friday. While his counting stats are lacking, Cervelli is sporting a .286 batting average and .348 on-base percentage and holds low-end value in cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher leagues. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) sports a .238/.250/.286 slash line this season, and FantasyScore players should view him as a desperation source of cap relief.
