Pirates | Pittsburgh sitting four starters

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:44:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen, 3B Jung Ho Kang, C Francisco Cervelli and SS Jordy Mercer are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, July 24. OF Starling Marte will start in center field, while OF Gregory Polanco will start in left field. 3B David Freese will start at third base and is batting third. OF Matt Joyce will start in right field and is batting fifth. C Elias Diaz will start at catcher and is batting seventh, while 2B Sean Rodriguez will start at shortstop and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is hitting only .190 over the last seven games but should still be a decent starting option in some leagues. Joyce is hitting .207 in July and probably can be avoided in most leagues. Diaz was recently called up from the minor leagues and should not be used by owners at this point. Rodriguez is hitting .251 with 10 home runs this season but should only be used in NL-only leagues.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli sitting vs. Milwaukee

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 13:49:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. Pirates C Eric Fryer is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli is a fringe starting catcher in shallow leagues, but in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only settings, he's worth rolling with. Fryer is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests Thursday, but he's an afterthought in seasonal leagues.

Pirates | Francisco Cervelli back in lineup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:09:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (wrist) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 19, and is batting sixth in the lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra. The team also designated C Erik Kratz for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Cervelli should receive most of the starts at catcher as long as he can stay healthy. He is hitting .257 with 21 RBI this season and should be a decent starting option in two-catcher leagues.
