      Braves' Chris Stewart: Outrighted to Triple-A

      Chris Stewart was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.Stewart received unexpected playing time in the opening week of the season with Tyler Flowers (oblique) and Kurt Suzuki (hand) both out injured. With Suzuki now able to return and Carlos Perez in the fold, Stewart was no longer needed, so he'll return to being organizational depth at the Triple-A level.

      Braves' Chris Stewart: Resting Wednesday

      Chris Stewart is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.With Tyler Flowers (oblique) on the disabled list and Kurt Suzuki (hand) not expected back in the lineup until Friday, Stewart has temporarily taken over as the Atlanta Braves' primary catcher, starting each of the past four contests. Manager Brian Snitker will give Stewart a much-needed rest for the Wednesday afternoon affair, allowing Carlos Perez to make his team debut behind the dish. Assuming Suzuki is ready to go Friday, it appears likely that Stewart will see only a couple of starts per week going forward.

      Braves' Chris Stewart: Could break camp with Braves

      Chris Stewart is still in the running for the final spot on the Atlanta Braves' Opening Day roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.With Johan Camargo (back) headed for the DL, the Braves are deciding between an additional utility player like Danny Santana, or a third catcher in Stewart, which would allow the team to use Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki as late-game pinch hitters. For his part, Stewart has had a decent spring in his limited opportunities, going 4-for-12, but the 36-year-old is highly unlikely to see enough playing time to have any real fantasy value even if he does win the job.

The journeyman backup has only once received more than 190 plate appearances. He'll begin the season as the Braves' third catcher behind Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki, though his major-league contract means he has a good chance to be the first catcher called upon in the event of an injury.

      Chris Stewart: Club declines option

      Chris 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: Gives way to Diaz on Sunday

      Chris Stewart is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.With Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) returning to the disabled list Saturday, the Pittsburgh 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

      Chris 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 Pittsburgh 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.
