Pirates | Francisco Cervelli will be DH

Sun, 29 May 2016 09:55:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli will serve as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, May 29. C Chris Stewart will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli is receiving a day off from the field but should still be a decent option in most leagues because he will receive his at-bats. Stewart has posted decent numbers in limited playing time but should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang, Francisco Cervelli out

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:39:57 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Jung Ho Kang and C Francisco Cervelli are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. 3B David Freese is starting at third base and is hitting fifth, while C Chris Stewart is behind the plate and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: This is Cervelli's second straight day sitting, so he may be dealing with an injury. Check back for more updates. Stewart is batting .229 after going 1-for-3 last night and is a very low-end catching option in DFS action. Freese has been respectable for the Pirates this year, batting .276 with two home runs and 12 RBI, and he could have an opportunity to drive in plenty of runs as a value pick.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli takes a seat

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:10:07 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. C Chris Stewart is doing the catching and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is sporting a .219 average (7-for-32) with one home run and four RBI. While hitting at the bottom of the order, Stewart is nothing more than a desperation daily play to save salary cap space.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli not playing

Thu, 19 May 2016 11:10:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. C Chris Stewart is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is a low-end catching option in daily games. He's batting .241 for the Pirates this year and has one home run and four RBI in just 29 at-bats. You should be able to find better low-priced options even on a day with fewer games at your disposal.

Pirates | Bucs backstops can't hit Wednesday's SP

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:39:10 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is just 1-for-14 (.071) with three RBIs and two strikeouts against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon, Wednesday's probable starter. C-1B John Jaso is 2-for-12 (.167) against Simon, while C Chris Stewart is 1-for-5 (.200) lifetime in limited exposure against Simon.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to avoid Cervelli, Jaso and Simon in daily fantasy leagues and DFS play due to their struggles against the Cincinnati starter.

Fantasy Tip: Freese played well while filling in for Kang during the first few weeks of the season and should be a fine starting candidate. Stewart has received limited playing time this season and probably can be avoided.

Pirates | Starling Marte sitting Thursday

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:49:50 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Starling Marte is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with OF Matt Joyce hitting cleanup. C Francisco Cervelli also has the day off, which bumps 2B Josh Harrison up to fifth, and C Chris Stewart is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Joyce has a .333-2-7 line and is a solid plug-and-play in Coors Field against Tyler Chatwood. J-Hay is on fire and is a daily consideration. Stewart is a basement flyer because of the park.

Pirates | Gregory Polanco, John Jaso sitting

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:16:14 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco and 1B John Jaso are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Wednesday, April 20. 1B Sean Rodriguez is starting in right field and hitting seventh, while C Chris Stewart is catching and hitting eighth. C Francisco Cervelli moves to first base and SS Jordy Mercer moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez and Stewart are low-end daily options against the lefty Pomeranz, who has looked sharp in his first two outings of the season for the Friars. Mercer gains the most fantasy value for the evening. He hit .284 (23-for-81) against lefties last year but had zero homers against them. Despite the move up the order, Mercer's fantasy value is capped without much power.

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 07:01:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is out of the lineup Thursday, April 14, with C Chris Stewart hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart takes on ace Jordan Zimmermann Thursday, and he doesn't have the offensive prowess to warrant a DFS start.
