  • Braves' Manny Pina: Undergoing season-ending surgery

    Manager Brian Snitker said Wednesday that Pina will undergo season-ending wrist surgery, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The 34-year-old has been sidelined since late April due to left wrist inflammation, but he'll miss the rest of 2022 after further testing revealed ligament and cartilage damage. Pina will now shift his focus toward rehabbing for the 2023 season, while William Contreras should continue to serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Travis d'Arnaud.

  • Braves' Manny Pina: Placed on 10-day IL

    Pina was placed on the 10-day injured list with left wrist inflammation Thursday, retroactive to April 25.

    Pina didn't appear in the last two games, and he was apparently unavailable due to his wrist injury. He'll be eligible to return as early as May 6 against the Brewers, but it's not yet clear how much time he'll need to recover. William Contreras was recalled by Atlanta to serve as the No. 2 catcher in Pina's absence.

  • Braves' Manny Pina: Rejoins lineup

    Pina (wrist) will start at catcher and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Nationals.

    Pina wasn't available for Atlanta's Grapefruit League finale April 5 due to a sore left wrist, but the team's decision to carry him on the season-opening 28-man roster seemingly implied that the injury wasn't anything worrisome. Travis d'Arnaud or William Contreras had started behind the plate in each of Atlanta's first four games, but with both resting Monday, Pina will enter the lineup for his 2022 debut.

  • Braves' Manny Pina: Dealing with wrist injury

    Pina was scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays due to a sore left wrist.

    Pina won't be available for Atlanta's spring finale and can be viewed as day-to-day as Thursday's Opening Day game against the Reds approaches. Atlanta plans to carry two other catchers -- Travis d'Arnaud and William Contreras -- on its Opening Day roster, so the team would have adequate coverage at the position even if Pina isn't available for the four-game series versus Cincinnati.

  • Braves' Manny Pina: Signs with Atlanta

    Pina joined Atlanta on a two-year, $8 million contract Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Pina had a strange season at the plate in 2021. His .162 BABIP limited his batting average to just .189, but he had a nearly average 95 wRC+ thanks to a career-best .250 ISO and hit 13 homers in 208 plate appearances. He's mostly performed at a backup level throughout his career and should fill that role behind Travis d'Arnaud for at least two more seasons and possibly a third, as Atlanta also gets a $4 million team option for 2024 as part of the deal.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Smacks homer in win

    Pina went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Pina smashed a solo shot off Andrew Miller in the seventh to provide Milwaukee with an insurance run Wednesday night. While Omar Narvaez (the Brewers' primary catcher) is hitting just .194 with no home runs in September, Pina has gotten hot. The backup backstop is hitting .269 with four long balls over that same span. Late September is not an opportune time to be messing around with your battery, but if Pina keeps hitting like this, expect to see him get some at-bats in the postseason.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Launches two homers

    Pina went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs and a walk in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

    Pina has three home runs over his last four games and now has 12 in what has been a career-best season for the backstop in terms of power. He doesn't bring much else to the table as he's hitting only .201 through 67 games, though he does have a .771 OPS thanks to a career-best .459 slugging percentage.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Homers, drives in three

    Pina went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's 11-1 win against Cleveland.

    In Pina's first start since he was activated from the injured list, he wasted no time making an impact. He knocked an RBI single in the second inning followed by a two-run shot in the third. It was his first multi-hit game since Aug. 14, and he bumped his slash line up to .195/.298/.422 with 10 homers and 30 RBI through 178 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Returns from injured list

    Pina (oblique) was activated off the injured list Friday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Pina's oblique issue wound up sidelining him for less than two weeks. He'll return to his role backing up Omar Narvaez behind the plate, with Luke Maile optioned to clear a roster spot.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Eyeing weekend return

    Manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that Pina (oblique) will likely be activated from the 10-day injured list at some point during the Brewers' upcoming weekend series in Cleveland, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Pina is eligible to return from the IL on Wednesday, but the Brewers will give him a few more days to recover from left oblique tightness. Once reinstated, Pina will displace Luke Maile as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Omar Narvaez.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Out with oblique injury

    Pina was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with left oblique tightness. The move is retroactive to Aug. 29.

    Pina apparently suffered the injury during Saturday's game against the Twins while going 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Luke Maile was promoted from Triple-A to serve as the backup to Omar Narvaez in Pina's absence.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Homers twice, plates six runs

    Pina went 3-for-6 with two home runs, six RBI and three runs scored in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

    Pina was one of the top performers for the Brewers in a game during which they scored 17 runs. He belted a grand slam off Kyle Hendricks in the fifth inning, and he later added a two-run shot off Ryan Meisinger in the sixth. Pina can mash and already has nine homers on the season, but his playing time remains inconsistent and that limits his fantasy upside across most formats. He's gone just 4-for-18 in five games this month as well.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Homers twice in win

    Pina went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI during Thursday's win over the Pirates.

    Pina took Chris Stratton deep with a 396-foot shot in the sixth inning and swatted his second of the night in the eighth. He now has seven long balls this season while recording his first hits since his last homer on July 7 against the Mets. Although Pina's lack of production is partially due to limited playing time as the team's backup catcher, a .156/.273/.367 slash line isn't doing him any favors.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Back on bench

    Pina is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

    Pina was responsible for producing the Brewers' lone runs in Tuesday's 5-2 loss, plating Avisail Garcia and Tyrone Taylor on a second-inning base hit. He'll return to his normal bench role for the series finale, with All-Star Omar Narvaez checking back in at catcher following a one-game respite.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Pops fifth homer

    Pina went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 5-0 win over the Mets during the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

    His second-inning shot off Robert Stock gave the Brewers all the offense they would need in the nightcap. It was Pina's first hit of any kind since June 13, and he's slashing a rough .128/.262/.326 through 38 games, albeit with five homers and 10 RBI.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Gets start in series finale

    Pina will start at catcher and bat seventh Thursday against the Reds.

    With No. 1 backstop Omar Narvaez resting for the day game after a night game, Pina will crack the starting nine for only the second time in seven contests. Pina has gone 0-for-15 at the plate over his last eight games, but the Brewers value him for his work as a game caller and receiver.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Clocks two-run homer

    Pina went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in Monday's 5-3 win over San Diego.

    Pina hadn't appeared in a game since May 18 but he quickly made an impact Monday with a two-run blast off Blake Snell in the second inning. He has four home runs and eight RBI with an .839 OPS through 52 plate appearances on the year.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Losing reps to Narvaez

    Pina is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Predictably, Pina has lost out on playing time since No. 1 catcher Omar Narvaez was reinstated from the 10-day injured list May 13. Pina will be on the bench Wednesday for the third time in four games.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Takes seat Sunday

    Pina is not in the lineup Sunday against the Marlins.

    The 33-year-old went 1-for-4 with a run in his return from the injured list Saturday, and he'll move to the bench for the series finale. Pina should operate as Milwaukee's primary catcher until Omar Narvaez (hamstring) returns from his own injury, but he's unlikely to work as an everyday starter with Jacob Nottingham and Luke Maile also on the active roster.

  • Brewers' Manny Pina: Back in action

    Pina (toe) was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Pina wound up missing just one day more than the minimum with his broken toe. He'll catch and bat seventh Saturday against the Marlins and should spend a brief period as the team's primary backstop until Omar Narvaez returns from a left hamstring strain, which could come as soon as next weekend.
