Brewers' Manny Pina: Weekend return expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (toe) was not activated from the injured list when first eligible Friday but is expected back over the weekend, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Previous reports indicated Pina would require a minimum-length stay on the injured list. While those reports were evidently slightly optimistic, he's only a day or two behind that schedule. He'll spend a brief period as the Brewers' primary catcher upon his return, with Omar Narvaez (hamstring) still at least a week away from returning to action.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Expected back when first eligible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (toe) is expected to return from the injured list when first eligible Friday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Injuries to Pina and Omar Narvaez (hamstring) and the loss of Jacob Nottingham to the Mariners on waivers have meant the Brewers are already digging deep on their depth chart to find catchers. Luke Maile, who owns a career wRC+ of 48, and Mario Feliciano, who's played just three games above High-A, will hold down the fort for now, but Pina should return before the end of next week.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Out with broken toe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina landed on the injured list Tuesday with a fractured left big toe.

Pina will be out until at least May 7, though it remains unclear whether he'll be able to return when first eligible. Luke Maile was recalled in a corresponding move and will back up Omar Narvaez behind the plate.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Plays hero Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina delivered a pinch-hit two-run home run in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Cubs.

His seventh-inning blast proved to be the game-winning hit. Pina only has four hits through 21 at-bats to begin the season, but three of them have gone for extra bases (two homers and a double). With Omar Narvaez off to a great start at the plate, however, it will be tough for Pina to carve out regular playing time in Milwaukee despite the flashes of power he's shown.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, a double and a walk in Sunday's 9-3 win over St. Louis.

Pina was hitless in six at-bats entering Sunday's contest but broke out in a big way. With a 7-3 lead in the ninth, the 33-year-old catcher clocked a two-run shot to put the game on ice. He'll continue seeing limited playing time behind Omar Narvaez.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (shoulder) is starting behind the plate and batting fifth in Friday's spring game against the Diamondbacks.

The 33-year-old left Monday's contest with shoulder discomfort, but it was only a precautionary exit. Pina and Jacob Nottingham (thumb) are competing for the No. 2 job at catcher behind expected starter Omar Narvaez.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Avoids major injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to manager Craig Counsell, Pina (shoulder) is OK after exiting Monday's spring game against the Padres, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pina was pulled from the exhibition due to discomfort in his left shoulder, but his removal was merely precautionary. Per Haudricourt, Pina was already attempting to convince his skipper to play in Tuesday's matchup. It wouldn't be a surprise to see the Brewers give him a few days off following Monday's scare.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Exits with shoulder discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina left Monday's game against the Padres with left shoulder discomfort, Adam McCalvy of reports.

He was involved in a collision at the plate with Tommy Pham and eventually exited the game as a result. Pina underwent knee surgery last summer, so it's good to hear that it ended up being an upper-body injury. The team says his exit was a precaution, so he should be considered day-to-day.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Exits after collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina was involved in a collision at the plate and left Monday's game against the Padres after the first inning, Adam McCalvy of reports.

He stayed in the game initially, but was replaced by Payton Henry in the second inning. This is particularly concerning, as Pina had knee surgery last summer, and appeared to be pretty shaken up after the collision with Tommy Pham. He should be considered day-to-day for now.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (knee) will start at catcher and will bat cleanup Monday in the Brewers' Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks.

Pina entered spring training at full health after requiring surgery Aug. 31 to address a torn meniscus in his right knee. The Brewers opted to tender him during the offseason, with Pina ultimately agreeing to a one-year, $1.65 million deal to avoid arbitration. Assuming his surgically-repaired knee holds up well this spring, Pina should open the 2021 campaign as the Brewers' No. 2 catcher behind Omar Narvaez.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Avoids arbitration with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (knee) agreed to a one-year, $1.65 million deal with the Brewers on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

He underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee in September, so it is unclear if he will be fully healthy in time for spring training. The Brewers also brought back Omar Narvaez and still have Jacob Nottingham in the mix, so the catching depth chart will be pretty crowded, as things currently stand.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Undergoes knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina underwent surgery on the torn meniscus in his right knee Tuesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

The Brewers haven't officially ruled Pina out for the season, but it seems very likely that the catcher is done for the year given the surgery's typical recovery time. Jacob Nottingham should back up Omar Narvaez behind the plate for the remainder of the campaign.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Could be done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a torn meniscus in his right knee.

This injury typically requires a 4-to-6 week recovery, so Pina's season could be over. Jacob Nottingham was recalled to take over the backup catcher duties.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Leaves with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina left Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Reds with a right knee injury, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

Pina walked in the second inning and advanced to second on a balk before Omar Narvaez pinch ran for him. Manager Craig Counsell said following the game that the catcher is currently having a hard time putting weight on his leg and that he will undergo further tests Friday, Adam McCalvy of reports. Given the pain Pina is experiencing, it seems unlikely that he'll be available for Friday's series opener against Pittsburgh.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Powers comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Twins.

He took Matt Wisler deep in the fifth inning, then clobbered a 3-0 pitch from Trevor May to right-center field in the sixth to drag the Brewers out of an early 4-1 hole. The homers were the first two of the season for Pina, but the 33-year-old backstop has been productive when called upon -- he has a five-game hitting streak going, and Tuesday's big performance pushed his slash line to .368/.478/.737 through 23 plate appearances.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (finger) is starting Monday against the White Sox.

Pina injured his finger on a foul tip Tuesday, but he got some extra time to recover over the weekend since the Brewers' series against the Cardinals was postponed. He'll bat seventh in his return to the starting lineup.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Likely unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said the Brewers would like to avoid using Pina against the Pirates on Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Pina apparently injured his finger on a foul tip Tuesday, and while the issue isn't thought to be anything serious, the team will try and stay away from him in Wednesday's series finale. Jacob Nottingham should serve as Milwaukee's backup catcher Wednesday.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Picks up hit in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina started Monday for the first time this season and went 1-for-3.

Starting catcher Omar Narvaez got the nod in the Brewers' first three games, but manager Craig Counsell decided to give Narvaez some rest and use Pina on Monday instead. While Narvaez is the Brewers' primary catcher, Pina hits lefties better and is better behind the plate, so he should see his fair share of action.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Two hits over 10 AB thus far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina is 2-for-10 with an RBI and a run through four appearances this spring.

While Yasmani Grandal is no longer on the Brewers' roster, Omar Narvaez is, so Pina will slot in as the Brewers' No. 2 catcher for the second year in a row. Narvaez's skills behind the plate do not compare to Grandal's, though, and Pina fared far better against left-handed pitching last year, so Pina should play more than your standard backup catcher and a platoon could even be in the cards.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Staying with Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers have picked up Pina's $1.85 million option for 2020, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 32-year-old backstop hit .228/.313/.411 (87 wRC+) with seven home runs in 179 plate appearances. However, he was a plus defensive catcher, making him worth 1.1 wins above replacement in just 76 games, per FanGraphs. The Brewers will attempt to bring in a better all-around option ahead of him on the depth chart.
