Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (concussion) is starting at catcher and hitting sixth Tuesday against the Twins, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Cervelli has been cleared to return to catching duties after being withheld from Sunday's series finale for precautionary reasons after taking a foul ball off his mask Saturday. The backstop has dealt with multiple concussions in the past, so the Pirates figure to exercise caution with the veteran down the stretch. He's hitting .255/.384/.463 with 11 homers through 74 games this season.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Makes appearance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (concussion), who struck out in a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday, is expected to continue catching in the coming week barring any setbacks, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

The team recalled third-string catcher Jacob Stallings for Sunday's game, but assistant general manager Kevan Graves believes his starter will return to action. "We do believe Francisco Cervelli will take the field consistently, but we also want to be cautious, we want to be thorough to be sure manager Clint Hurdle and the staff are as protected as possible," Graves said. The Pirates resume play Tuesday, giving Cervelli another day to recover. After missing time with multiple concussions, however, the catcher is just one stray foul tip away from missing additional action.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (undisclosed) is out the lineup for Sunday's game at San Francisco, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

Cervelli exited Saturday's game for precautionary reasons after taking a foul ball off his mask. The team didn't immediately address it as an injury issue, and could simply be playing things safe with a scheduled off day Monday. Elias Diaz will start behind the plate and bat sixth in his absence.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Leaves game after hit in mask
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli left Saturday's game after taking a foul ball off his mask, Bill Brink reports.

Given Cervelli's history of concussions and other injuries, this is something to watch in the near future. Elias Diaz subbed in for him behind the plate in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Mashes grand slam against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli went 3-for-5 with a grand slam, five RBI and two runs in the Pirates' 13-10 loss to the Giants on Friday.

It was a huge day for the 32-year-old backstop, who parked a seventh-inning grand slam against Pierce Johnson that accounted for most of his damage. He's having a fantastic offensive season behind the plate for the Pirates overall, as Cervelli is now sporting a .258/.384/.467 slash line to go along with 11 homers and 47 RBI through 229 at-bats.
