Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Avoids arbitration with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Francisco Cervelli agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration, the Pittsburgh Tribune's Travis Sawchik reports.

Catcher defense is tough to value in arbitration cases, so the Pirates are getting Cervelli at a discount in 2016, as his offensive numbers are good, but not great. He is a middling option in fantasy, as he should hit for a relatively high average, but his counting stats will leave a lot to be desired.

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervell hits grand slam Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli went 2 for 4 with a double and a grand slam against the St. Louis Cardinals in the first half of Wednesday's doubleheader. He also struck out his other two times up, but he'll take it.

Cervelli will likely take a seat in the nightcap after enjoying his fifth multi-hit game in the last eight. Although Wednesday's extra-base knocks were his first since way back on Sept. 6, it's hard to knock a catcher who's hitting .300 -- no other catcher besides Buster Posey has achieved that this year.

Pirates C Francisco Cervelli shakes off leg injury for Saturday tilt
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli (leg) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

While the Pirates didn't provide many specifics regarding the leg injury that forced Cervelli from Thursday's game, it was evidently a minor issue, as he's set to return after missing just one start. He's penciled in to catch and bat seventh against left-hander Clayton Kershaw.

Pirates C Francisco Cervelli (leg) is out of the lineup Friday
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli (leg) is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

Cervelli's leg injury forced him out of Thursday's contest, and he's not expected to miss a ton of time because of it. Chris Stewart will replace him behind the plate Friday, however, batting eighth for the Pirates.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli ejected for contesting balls and strikes
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli was ejected in the third inning of Thursday's game against the Marlins. Home plate umpire Alan Porter gave Cervelli the hook for arguing balls and strikes.

Cervelli was 1 for 2 with a triple, a run scored and a strikeout before his ejection. Chris Stewart took over behind the plate.
