Pirates | Rest day for Francisco Cervelli

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:43:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. C Chris Stewart is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has decent numbers for a backup catcher (.286-0-15), but he remains a deep sleeper with a little upside today while hitting at Coors Field.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli out Friday

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 16:27:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (foot) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. C Chris Stewart is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli reinjured his foot during a collision at home plate Thursday, but he seems to be fine moving forward. Starting Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) Friday night would be an idiotic idea against Greinke.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli resting in first game

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 09:18:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Tuesday, Sept. 15. C Chris Stewart is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .292 (42-for-144) but he has no home runs and only 15 RBI in backup duty for the Bucs this year. He's a low-end catcher mainly used for salary cap relief in daily formats.

Pirates | No Francisco Cervelli vs. Milwaukee

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 12:37:59 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 11. C Chris Stewart is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has held his own in limited playing time this season, but he offers little upside and owns a .331 slugging percentage. He is nothing more than a source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Friday. Cervelli ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been a solid hitter for the Pirates all season and checks out as a low-end catcher in NL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher fantasy formats.

Pirates | Chris Stewart catching Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 10:37:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Chris Stewart will bat eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Saturday, Sept. 5. C Francisco Cervelli is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is batting .280 with no homers and 12 RBIs in 132 at-bats this season. He should not be a consideration for FantasyScore lineups unless you are in desperate need of salary cap relief.

Pirates | No Francisco Cervelli Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:43:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. C Chris Stewart is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Miami Marlins SP Chris Narveson.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is strictly an option for FantasyScore users if you're in desperate need of salary cap relief. But his matchup tonight against a spot starter isn't the worst in the world.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli out of lineup

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:05:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Chris Stewart will bat eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Saturday, Aug. 22. C Francisco Cervelli is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 5-for-15 at the plate this month and 2-for-7 in his career versus Leake. Aside from the lack of power, he makes a productive source of FantasyScore salary cap relief.

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:35:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Sunday, Aug. 16. C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .299 in limited playing time this season, but owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options.
