Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Drives in three against Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli went 1-for-3 with a double, a run and three RBI in Pittsburgh's 8-1 victory over St. Louis on Friday.

The veteran backstop just continues to rake, as his latest explosive offensive effort brought his slash line up to a ridiculous .283/.401/.535 through 127 at-bats. That's not a huge sample size, but it's enough of one at this point to where Cervelli has been functioning as one of the best-hitting catchers in the league for a significant stretch. It might not last the entire season, but for now, there's no reason to stop riding this train.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Returns to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (hand) will start behind the plate and bat third in Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Cervelli sustained the injury blocking a pitch Wednesday and was held out of the lineup Thursday, but it appears to be a minor issue. The Pirates' catcher has a fantastic .282/.399/.532 slash line will face Cardinals' right-hander John Gant on Friday.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Injury doesn't appear to be serious
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (hand), who injured his right ring finger blocking a pitch Wednesday, missed one game with a similar injury last week.

Initially, he remained in Wednesday's tilt but was eventually forced to leave because he couldn't grip the baseball. Cervelli didn't have the finger wrapped or taped following the contest, leading to speculation that the injury won't force him to miss much action. The catcher has already tied his career high with seven homers in 2018.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Held out of lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli (hand) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Reds.

Cervelli's absence in the series finale comes as no surprise with the backstop dealing with right hand and finger discomfort and the Pirates playing a day game after a night game. The Pirates are viewing Cervelli as day-to-day and seem optimistic that he'll avoid the disabled list, but Elias Diaz will act as the team's primary catcher until the veteran is deemed ready to play again.

Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Exits with hand discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cervelli exited Wednesday's game against the Reds with right hand and finger discomfort, Elizabeth Bloom of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Cervelli was 2-for-6 with a homer -- his seventh of the season, tying a career high -- before exiting the game prior to the bottom of the 12th inning. It's unclear when the backstop suffered the injury or the severity of the issue, but fantasy owners will be crossing their fingers given his injury history.
