    • Chris Stewart: Club declines option
      By RotoWire Staff

      Stewart will not return to the Pirates after the club elected to decline its $1.5 million option for the 2018 season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Stewart played in 51 games for Pittsburgh in 2017, but he hit just .183/.241/.221 with no home runs and four RBI. He will look to latch on with another organization this winter, although it's unlikely that he will make much of a fantasy impact.

    • Pirates' Chris Stewart: Sits again Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Stewart is out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs. Stewart had started four straight games earlier in the week, but Labor Day will mark his third consecutive absence from the starting lineup. Elias Diaz, who is 3-for-17 at the dish since getting the call Aug. 26, will draw yet another start Monday.

    • Pirates' Chris Stewart: Out of Sunday lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Stewart is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. While Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) is on the DL, Stewart has drawn four of the last five starts behind the plate for Pittsburgh. Sunday will mark Stewart's second consecutive day out of the lineup, however, as the team will turn to Elias Diaz as it attempts to take the series from Cincinnati.

    • Pirates' Chris Stewart: Gives way to Diaz on Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Stewart is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds. With Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) returning to the disabled list Saturday, the Pirates have an opening for regular starts behind the plate, but it looks as though Stewart may be forced to share time with Elias Diaz, who receives the nod Sunday. Even if Stewart were to take on the bulk of the catching duties, he would likely do more harm than good for fantasy owners, given the middling .469 OPS he carries for the season.

    • Pirates' Chris Stewart: Bows out of lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Stewart is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies. After starting four of the past six games behind the plate, Stewart's opportunities to see regular at-bats will likely draw to a close with the Pirates bringing back Francisco Cervelli (concussion) from the 7-day disabled list Monday. Stewart has never been known for his aptitude with the bat anyway, so it's unlikely that fantasy owners in NL-only leagues were relying on him for much production while Cervelli was sidelined.
