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.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Passes concussion test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina passed his concussion test and will be available for Tuesday's game against San Diego, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Pina has been sidelined since suffering a concussion Sept. 5 against the Cubs, but after clearing protocol, he's ready to roll. He'll be available off the bench for the second game of the series.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina was scheduled for a full workout Monday, and if all goes well, he'll take the MLB's concussion test again, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Pina was in line to hit, run and throw Monday, meaning he's likely put any concussion-like symptoms behind him. However, before he's cleared to return, he'll need to pass the league's concussion test, which should take place within the next few days.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Needs more recovery time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (concussion) took part in some light activity Thursday, though he's not ready to return just yet, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pina's return from a concussion is progressing slowly, and skipper Craig Counsell stated Friday that his backup catcher will need to string together multiple "good days in a row" before receiving the green light. At this point, it seems unlikely that he'll return over the weekend.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Won't return before Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (concussion) won't return until Friday at the earliest, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pina's presence with the team for its series in Miami suggested that he was just a few days away from returning, but he'll apparently need more time than that. His exact return date remains unclear.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Ready to resume activity
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (concussion) is slated to resume baseball activities Monday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pina was diagnosed with a mild concussion last week after taking a foul ball off his mask, but he said he's feeling much better after an initially rough few days following the injury. The backstop is in Miami with the Brewers ahead of the team's four-game series vs. the Marlins, and according to Sophia Minnaert of Fox Sports Wisconsin, he could return to action before the end of the series Thursday. Look for David Freitas and Jacob Nottingham to back up Yasmani Grandal in the meantime.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Diagnosed with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina has been diagnosed with a mild concussion and was sent home to rest Friday, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The team should have a better idea of his timetable to return in a few days after he goes through the concussion protocol. Yasmani Grandal is starting at catcher Friday and David Freitas and Jacob Nottingham are also on the active roster.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Out with head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (head) is not in Friday's lineup against the Cubs.

He exited Thursday's game with head discomfort, although his absence from Friday's lineup doesn't necessarily mean that injury is still affecting him. Yasmani Grandal will start behind the dish and hit second.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Leaves Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina left Thursday's game with "head discomfort," Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Hopefully this is just a headache, but the Brewers were oddly vague. The team will likely put Pina through a series of tests to be sure it's nothing serious before clearing him to step back in behind the plate.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Playing regularly against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

Pina owned a woeful .557 OPS as recently as July 3, but he has gotten in a groove at the plate since, posting a stellar .348/.388/.630 slash line in 49 plate appearances over 20 games to raise his OPS on the season to a respectable .730. Pina's hot streak has earned him a bump in playing time, as manager Craig Counsel has regularly used a lineup consisting of Pina behind the plate and Yasmani Grandal at first base against left-handed starters.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Pops sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 2-for-2 with a home run and four RBI in Tuesday's 14-6 loss to the Reds.

Entering the game in the top of the sixth inning after Yasmani Grandal was lifted as part of a double switch, Pina ended up providing the Brewers with most of their offense on the night. The backup catcher is slashing only .196/.288/.424 on the year, but Pina does have six homers and 15 RBI in 104 plate appearances.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Hits fifth home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's victory over the Braves.

Pina made the most of what was just his fourth start of the month, hitting his fifth home run of the season and knocking in just one fewer run than he accumulated over his previous 14 games. Pina is hitting just .186 on the season, but he has seen the ball well lately, going 5-for-11 (.455) with two home runs, a double, and five RBI over his last six contests. Despite the hot stretch, he figures to continue seeing sparse playing time behind top backstop Yasmani Grandal.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Seeing scarce work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Pina will be on the bench for the fifth straight contest and for the 10th time in 12 games while Yasmani Grandal continues to dominate the playing time behind the dish. Though Pina brings most of his value to the Brewers on the defensive end, the lack of steady action seems to have made him more unproductive than usual at the plate. Pina is batting just .167/.278/.346 across 90 plate appearances this season.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Hits third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

Pina took advantage of his first start in over a week with a big day at the plate. His home run -- his third of the season -- was a solo shot off Madison Bumgarner that opened the scoring in the third inning. Despite the strong showing, he's still hitting just .172/.273/.362 on the season and is unlikely to be stealing at-bats from Yasmani Grandal any time soon.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Saturday, Adam McCalvy of reports.

Pina had been out since mid-May with a hamstring strain. He'll return to his backup role behind Yasmani Grandal. Gio Gonzalez (arm) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Brewers' Manny Pina: Expected to return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pina (hamstring) is expected to rejoin the Brewers in Pittsburgh this weekend, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Pina has been sidelined since May 15 with a hamstring injury. He's played in two rehab games with Low-A Wisconsin, going 1-for-6 with a pair of RBI in those contests. The backstop is set to play once more for the Timber Rattlers on Thursday before rejoining the Brewers in Pittsburgh.
