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.

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

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.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players should avoid Cervelli ($3,500; or 7.0% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without setbacks. Chris Stewart ($1,600; or 3.2% of cap) will likely start if Cervelli misses time.

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 | Three RBI for Francisco Cervelli

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 20:14:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli hit a three-run home run during the Pirates' 7-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, June 23. It was his only hit of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is having a solid season for the Bucs. He boasts a .306/.383/.409 slash line with 20 runs, three home runs and 22 RBI, and he should be viewed as a solid No. 2 catcher in two-catcher leaues and low-end starter in NL-only formats. At FantasyScore, Cervelli is worth utilizing as a value play when the Pirates face a favorable opposing pitcher.
