  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Pair of hits

    Heineman went 2-for-4 with an RBI against the Cubs on Thursday.

    Heineman started for the second time in Pittsburgh's last five games and appears to be in a timeshare with Michael Perez. Heineman collected multiple hits in a start for the third time this season, highlighted by an RBI single in the sixth frame. Despite the decent performance, he's hitting a dreadful .184/.244/.237 across 84 plate appearances on the season, although that's still a small step up from Perez's .127/.184/.254 line.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: On bench again

    Heineman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Heineman is sitting for the third time in four games, and manager Derek Shelton looks like he may prefer to ride the hotter bat between his two catchers rather than anointing one as the clear top option. Michael Perez will be rewarded with another turn behind the dish after popping a home run in Tuesday's 7-1 win, but he still has more work to do to separate himself from Heineman as the two battle for playing time. Both have been equally unproductive this season, with Perez having supplied a .435 OPS while Heineman sits on a .432 mark.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Tallies third RBI

    Heineman went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI on Monday against the Cubs.

    Heineman doubled in a run in the seventh inning to contribute to a five-run rally for Pittsburgh. It was his first hit in his last 21 at-bats -- a span of seven starts. Heineman is still operating as Pittsburgh's primary catcher, though he's hitting just .155/.221/.211 across 80 plate appearances on the season.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Heineman is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

    Heineman will be getting some routine maintenance after he was behind the plate for four of the Pirates' last five contests. Michael Perez will catch for starting pitcher Roansy Contreras on Tuesday.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Hits bench Sunday

    Heineman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    Heineman started in each of the Pirates' last three games, going 0-for-9 with a walk and a run scored. Michael Perez will spell Heineman behind the dish in the series finale.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Out of lineup for Game 2

    Heineman is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Jason Delay made his MLB debut in Game 1 and Michael Perez will start the nightcap for Pittsburgh. Heineman is 2-for-22 over his past seven games and doesn't have much job security atop the depth charter at catcher.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Takes seat for early game

    Heineman isn't included in the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals.

    New call-up Jason Delay will get the start behind the plate for the early game Tuesday in what will mark his MLB debut, but expect Heineman to draw back into the starting nine for the nightcap. Heineman still looks to be ahead of both Michael Perez and Delay on the Pirates' depth chart at catcher.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Heineman will sit Sunday against Atlanta.

    Heineman, who owns a .486 OPS in 24 games this season, has now been on the bench for three of the last five games. It's not clear that he's meaningfully ahead of Sunday's starter Michael Perez on the catcher depth chart at the moment.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Records steal

    Heineman went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 10-4 loss to Atlanta.

    Heineman is not known for speed -- he had just one career stolen base and no triples entering Saturday. He was plunked in the fifth inning and promptly stole second before scoring on a Bryan Reynolds double. With Roberto Perez (hamstring) out for the year, the playing time's been there for Heineman recently, but he's failed to seize the opportunity by going 2-for-19 (.105) in six games in June. Overall, the catcher is hitting .182/.250/.236 with no home runs, two RBI and eight runs scored in 24 contests between the Pirates and the Blue Jays.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Heads to bench Friday

    Heineman is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus Atlanta.

    Heineman started six of the past eight games and will take a seat after posting a .618 OPS during that stretch. Michael Perez will start behind the plate in his place.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Resting Wednesday

    Heineman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Heineman has seemingly usurped Michael Perez as Pittsburgh's No. 1 catcher, but Perez will get the nod in the series finale as the Pirates and Tigers get together for a day game after a night game. In Tuesday's 5-3 loss, Heineman was behind the plate for all nine innings and was hitless over his three plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Gets breather Saturday

    Heineman isn't starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Starting again Wednesday

    Heineman is starting Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Although right-hander Mitch White is starting for the Dodgers on Wednesday, Heineman will start behind the plate for the fifth time in the last seven games. Over the last six matchups, he's gone 4-for-14 with three runs, a walk and a strikeout.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Three hits, two runs in win

    Heineman went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Dodgers.

    Heineman rattled off three singles in the contest, and he came around to score on a Tucupita Marcano homer in the second inning and a Bryan Reynolds double in the ninth. This was Heineman's second multi-hit effort in 18 games this season. The catcher has a .222/.263/.278 slash line with no home runs, one RBI, five runs scored and two doubles through 40 plate appearances between the Pirates and the Blue Jays this year.

  • Pirates' Tyler Heineman: Claimed by Pirates

    Heineman was claimed off outright waivers by the Pirates on Monday.

    Heineman was sent down by the Blue Jays on Saturday, and he'll be claimed by the Pirates several days later. The 30-year-old appeared in 10 major-league games early in the year and went 4-for-15 with two doubles, two runs and an RBI. Since Andrew Knapp was designated for assignment Monday, Heineman will likely join the big-league club as catching depth.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Heading to minors

    Heineman was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    The 30-year-old served as catching depth for the Blue Jays over the last month, but he'll head back to the minors after Danny Jansen (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. Heineman went 4-for-15 with two doubles, two runs, an RBI and four strikeouts over 10 major-league games and should see more consistent playing time in Buffalo.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Contract selected by Toronto

    Heineman had his contract selected by the Blue Jays and will be active for Monday's game against the Yankees, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 30-year-old was unable to grab a spot on Toronto's Opening Day roster but will join the big-league club with Danny Jansen (oblique) landing on the injured list. Heineman is unlikely to see much action since the Blue Jays still have Alejandro Kirk and Zack Collins as options behind the plate.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Heads to minors

    The Blue Jays reassigned Heineman to minor-league camp Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Heineman was attending camp as a non-roster invitee and was behind at least Danny Jansen, Alejandro Kirk, Zack Collins and Gabriel Moreno on the organizational depth chart at catcher, so he never had much hope of earning a spot on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster. The 30-year-old backstop is expected to report to Triple-A Buffalo, where he'll likely serve as Moreno's primary understudy.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Gets MiLB deal from Jays

    Heineman agreed Sunday with the Blue Jays on a minor-league contract, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Heineman is expected to slot in as catching depth for Toronto at Triple-A Buffalo in 2022 after he spent the entire 2021 campaign between two Triple-A affiliates in Lehigh Valley and Memphis as a member of the Phillies and Cardinals organizations, respectively. The 30-year-old backstop has previously gotten tastes of the big leagues in the 2019 season with the Marlins and the 2020 season with the Giants, slashing a collective .208/.288/.302 over 62 career plate appearances.

  • Phillies' Tyler Heineman: Signs minor-league contract

    Heineman signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Saturday.

    Heineman began the season at Triple-A Memphis, and he hit .254 with four doubles, eight runs and five RBI in 21 minor-league games before he was released by the Cardinals on Thursday. The 30-year-old has been assigned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, and he could be an option to serve as catching depth for the big-league club at some point during the second half of the season.
