Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Still no timetable
General manager Neal Huntington said Sunday on SportsRadio 93.7 The Fan Pittsburgh that he doesn't expect Cervelli (concussion) to return from the 7-day injured list in the near future. "Francisco is still in rest mode at this time," Huntington said. "We'll ramp him back up to activity once we feel the rest period has been long enough. This is a tough one. We want to make the best possible decision for his health long-term."
Huntington's comments suggest Cervelli can be ruled out for the Pirates' nine-game road trip that begins Monday and runs through June 16. Elias Diaz has been working as the Pirates' No. 1 catcher and seems likely to maintain his spot atop the depth chart even after Cervelli is cleared to return.
