      Braves' Chris Stewart: Signs with Braves

      Chris Stewart signed a one-year major-league contract with the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday.The 11-year veteran has played for six teams in his major-league career. 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.

      Pirates' Chris Stewart: Collects fourth start in six games

      Chris Stewart will start behind the plate and bat eighth Sunday against the Giants, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.It initially appeared that the higher-upside Elias Diaz would settle in as the Pittsburgh Pirates' primary starter behind the dish while Francisco Cervelli (concussion) has been sidelined, but those duties seem to have fallen to Stewart, who will pick up his fourth start in six games Sunday. Stewart collected only two hits in those previous three starts and is batting .203 on the season, so it will be difficult to wring much fantasy value out of him while he retains the top spot on the depth chart.

      Chris Stewart (hamstring) ran curves Wednesday and hopes to progress to running the bases in the near future, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.Stewart is slowly making his way back from a hamstring strain that has kept him sidelined since May. Once Stewart is able to run the bases, he'll likely head out on a rehab assignment, at which point there should be a clearer return date for him.
