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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting .293 against righties this season, and he'll be an excellent source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners not willing to pay up for a top-tier catcher.

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.
