Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Can't go against Phils
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to the recurrence of a foot injury, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "Francisco continues to have a little bit of soreness in the foot, so we just want to make sure that we take care of him," general manager Neal Huntington said.

He had an active game Saturday, legging out a triple, but it's never encouraging when a player faces chronic foot pain in spring training, especially a catcher. Backup Chris Stewart has also had a difficult time staying on the field, potentially opening up additional action for Elias Diaz at some point in 2017.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Goes deep Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli homered and walked two times in three plate appearances Thursday against Detroit.

The catcher hit only one home run in 326 at-bats in 2016, so Thursday's effort has to at least boost Cervelli's confidence a little bit. He was also able to catch, which is important because he missed time early in camp with a sore foot. The Bucs don't seem too concerned about Cervelli's condition, but the true test will come when he tries catching an entire game.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Makes Grapefruit League debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (foot) caught two innings and went hitless in two at-bats Tuesday in his spring debut, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Cervelli was added to the lineup about an hour before the start of the game. "We were targeting today if everything went well," manager Clint Hurdle said. "We got good reports on him (Monday), so he's back in play. We'll see how he feels tomorrow." He leads all big league catchers with a .372 OBP over the past three seasons but offers little in the way of power.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Cleared for modified baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (foot) is making progress in his recovery and has been cleared for "modified baseball activities," Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Pirates want Cervelli to work out for them before deciding whether he should play for Italy in the World Baseball Classic. The progress, nonetheless, is a positive sign going forward and could point to the veteran catcher being ready for Opening Day on April 7. Cervelli missed multiple games last season with foot discomfort, so this is a situation worth monitoring in the coming days.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Takes in light workout Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (foot) was on the field for the start of Tuesday's practice but did not put on his catcher's equipment, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "I felt much better," Cervelli said. "I threw, I hit BP in the cage. We're moving forward."

He said the pain in his foot was caused by him practicing without the insole he typically wears. Cervelli still believes he'll be able to play for Italy in the WBC. The Pirates are expected to update his status Wednesday.
