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.

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.

The New York Yankees have placed C Brian McCann (concussion) on the seven-day disabled list. The team also recalled C Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for McCann at this point. Francisco Cervelli could get most of the starts while McCann is out of the lineup. He likely would be a short-term option in AL-only and two-catcher leagues at this point.

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (concussion) left the game early Friday, Aug. 8, because of a mild concussion. He is considered day-to-day at this point.
Fantasy Tip: There is a chance McCann may need a trip on the seven-day disabled list because of the concussion. Francisco Cervelli likely would receive most of the starts if McCann goes on the DL. Cervelli probably would only be an option in AL-only and two-catcher leagues.
