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.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli back in lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:05:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (head) is back in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, after being shaken up when a foul tip hit his mask Tuesday, May 19. He's hitting seventh in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been solid this year for the Bucs while most of the catching crop has been underwhelming in 2015. However, he has no home runs and just nine RBI, making his FantasyScore ceiling rather low.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli leaves game

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:48:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (head) left the game early Tuesday, May 19, after he took a foul tip off his mask. Cervelli was removed for precautionary reasons.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will be tested for a possible concussion, so owners should monitor the situation. Chris Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) would be the regular starting catcher if Cervelli is sidelined but should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli hitting second

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:04:34 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is hitting second in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen Tuesday, May 5, with 3B Josh Harrison out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't tip the scales much at FantasyScore, but his low value will receive a bit of a boost hitting atop the order. He's also facing a rookie that was roughed up in his first major league start last week.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli on the bench

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:21:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. C Chris Stewart will be the starting catcher for the Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has started seven of the last eight games, so he is likely receiving a day off. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only gone 3-for-14 at the plate and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli sitting out

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 09:40:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Sunday, April 19. C Chris Stewart will be the starting catcher for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) starting the previous four games, so he is receiving a day off. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) recently came off the disabled list and probably should be avoided for now.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli batting second

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:01:13 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is batting second against the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup promotion is a nice fantasy boost for Cervelli ($2,000, 4.0% of cap). Cervelli is 7-for-23 to start the season, and at his cap hit, he makes a nice FantasyScore target Friday. It is unlikely Cervelli sticks in the two hole, though, as the order shuffle is likely because of Neil Walker's day off.
