    • Cervelli (concussion) will be evaluated by a neurologist Tuesday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. The backstop has apparently been symptom-free for close to a week now, and he recently resumed baseball activities. A return date for Cervelli will hopefully emerge following his appointment Tuesday.

    • Cervelli (concussion) has been cleared to begin light physical activity, general Neal Huntington said on SportsRadio 93.7 The Fan Pittsburgh. The Pirates continue to handle Cervelli's recovery with care. "He's had no symptoms and will be reassessed when the team comes off the road this week," Huntington said Sunday. "We'll see what the next steps are at that point in time." Cervelli, who hasn't played since May 25, is slashing .193/.279/.248 with one homer and five RBI in 123 plate appearances.

    • Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Symptom-free
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cervelli is no longer dealing with concussion symptoms, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. While this is an encouraging sign for Cervelli, he still hasn't been cleared to resume workouts, suggesting a return from the 7-day injured list is not imminent. Look for Elias Diaz to take most of the starts at backstop until Cervelli is cleared to return.

    • Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Still no timetable
      By RotoWire Staff

      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.

    • Cervelli (concussion) has been participating in conditioning workouts over the last couple days but has no timeline for his return, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. General manager Neal Huntington said Sunday the team would likely express additional caution with Cervelli given his extensive concussion history, which hardly comes as a surprise. The 33-year-old was eligible to be activated off the 7-day injured list Sunday but will clearly be spending some more time on the shelf.
