Pirates | Francisco Cervelli on the bench

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:39:26 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross Sunday, July 26. C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .291 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli remains out

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 14:11:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Wednesday, July 22. C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is more of a defensive player and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli sitting out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:37:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas Tuesday, July 21. C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) usually does not play when Gerrit Cole pitches, so his wrist may not be the reason he is not playing. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not done much at the plate this season and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli out vs. Cards

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:25:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 10. C Chris Stewart is starting behind the dish and batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: Since the beginning of 2014, Cervelli ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has a .295/.368/.407 slash line over 422 plate appearances. He doesn't pile on the counting stats, but seasonal owners could do a lot worse in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has hit well in limited action this season and sports a .306/.338/.403 slash line against right-handed hurlers, so he is a low-priced option for FantasyScore players seeking cap relief.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli scratched

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:23:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli was scratched from the lineup for an unknown reason Tuesday, July 7. C Chris Stewart is now catching and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for an update on why Cervelli is not playing. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .298 (25-for-84) but has no home runs and only seven RBI this year. Plus, Ross is striking out 9.8 hitters per nine innings. Look elsewhere for your FantasyScore catcher.

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.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli on the bench

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.

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. C Chris Stewart is catching and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has almost zero offensive upside, and he should be ignored at FantasyScore.
