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.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli has day off

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.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli resting Sunday

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 08:26:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is receiving the day off versus Cincinnati Reds SP Tim Melville Sunday, April 10. C Chris Stewart will start behind the plate and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart will be making his first appearance of the season and hit .289 with 15 RBIs in 58 games last year. He should be viewed as a productive yet inexpensive catching option for daily fantasy contests.

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.
