Pirates' Jacob Stallings: MInor-league shuffle may be over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings figures to stick in the big leagues following the announcement that Francisco Cervelli (concussion) will no longer catch in the major leagues, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

The 29-year-old, who is out of options, cleared waivers earlier in the season. He would likely take over starting duties in the event of injury to Elias Diaz. While Diaz will start behind the plate, Stallings has showed unexpected offense (.327 in 52 at-bats) in his limited play. He's caught Joe Musgrove's last three starts and continues to play an increasing role with the team -- he's started five of the team's last 11 contests. Stallings is considered a defense-first backstop, but he did slash .265/.317/.408 in parts of four Triple-A campaigns.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Hits first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings went 3-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI, two runs and a walk in the Pirates' 10-0 win over the Astros on Thursday.

The 29-year-old backstop had an active day from the ninth spot in the order, reaching base in all four of his plate appearances and swatting his first long ball of the season with a sixth-inning solo shot off Cy Sneed. Stallings was brought up out of necessity after Francisco Cervelli (concussion) hit the injured list, but he's done well with his opportunity so far, as this big day at the plate brings his slash line up to .341/.400/.439 through 45 plate appearances.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Picks up start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings will start at catcher and bat eighth Saturday against the Padres.

Stallings will be making only his seventh start since he was promoted from Triple-A Indianapolis on May 26. He's only expected to spell top backstop Elias Diaz once or twice per week while he's up with the big club and should be headed back to Triple-A once Francisco Cervelli (concussion) is activated from the injured list.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Rejoins Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings had his contract selected from Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pirates on Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Stallings was outrighted to Triple-A earlier in May but makes his return to the Pirates after Francisco Cervelli suffered a concussion Saturday. The 29-year-old should serve as the backup catcher to Elias Diaz until Cervelli is good to go.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Ourighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings (neck) ended his rehab assignment and was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Stallings completed his rehab assignment and went unclaimed on the waiver wire before being sent to the minors. Geoff Hartlieb was added to the 40-man roster and called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Rehab assignment begins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings (neck) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, John Perrotto of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Stallings is dealing with a cervical neck strain. It's not clear when he's expected to return, but he won't have a major-league roster spot to come back to, as Elias Diaz is back as the backup catcher after missing an extended period due to illness.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Resumes activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings (neck) was cleared to resume light baseball activities Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Stallings was diagnosed with cervical neck strain and was placed on the 10-day injured list over the weekend. The transaction coincided with fellow catcher Elias Diaz's (illness) activation from the IL, so Stallings with be a clear No. 3 in the organizational pecking order at the position once he's healthy again.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cervical neck strain Sunday.

Stallings is out of options, so his move to the injured list allows the Pirates to activate Elias Diaz (illness) without needing to designate him for assignment. It's unclear how seriously he's injured or when he's expected to return.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Opportunities limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

The Pirates made liberal use of No. 2 catcher Elias Diaz last season, but Stallings hasn't been extended the same opportunity while Diaz has been stuck on the injured list all season while working back from an illness. He'll remain on the bench for the third straight game while top backstop Francisco Cervelli sticks in the lineup. Stallings has drawn just two starts through the PIrates' first 15 contests.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Looks to be over neck issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings (neck) is listed as an available bench option for Saturday's split-squad Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

Jason Delay is also on hand as another reserve backstop, but the fact that Stallings will dress for the exhibition suggests the stiff neck that he first experienced Wednesday is no longer much of a concern. With Elias Diaz (illness) slated to open the season on the injured list, Stallings is poised to break camp as the top backup to No. 1 catcher Francisco Cervelli.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Exits with stiff neck
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings left Wednesday's game against the Twins with a stiff neck, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Stalling's exit is being called precautionary, so it doesn't sound like he'll miss much time. The Pirates will hope he's able to return soon, as he'll be needed as temporary backup catcher with Elias Diaz not expected to be built up to speed by Opening Day due to a lengthy illness-related absence.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Plays hero in series opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings went 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Monday's win over the Royals.

Stallings singled to left in the bottom of the ninth inning to plate the winning run. With Francisco Cervelli (illness) and Elias Diaz (hamstring) out for the time being, Stallings made the most of his at-bats, posting his first multi-hit game of the year. He's gone 8-for-32 with five RBI and two walks in 12 games at the big-league level in 2018.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Provides offense against Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings went 2-for-5 with three RBI in Wednesday's 4-3 win over St. Louis.

He's serving as Francisco Cervelli's backup while Elias Diaz (hamstring) remains sidelined. Stallings, who is best known for his steady defense, hit a surprising .285 in 256 Triple-A at-bats in 2018 (well above his career mark of .252). The 28-year-old has made just 19 appearances in the majors over the last three seasons.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was called up by the Pirates on Saturday.

Stallings will serve as the Pirates' third catcher for the stretch run. His limited role will likely prevent him from having much fantasy value, though a solid .285/.335/.414 line for Triple-A Indianapolis hints at some potential.

August 16, 2018 03:36 PM
Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Francisco Cervelli is back to full health, so Stallings will head back to the minors after a four-day stay with the big club during which he failed to make an appearance. The 28-year-old, who is hitting .284/.333/.408 with Triple-A Indianapolis, will continue to serve as organizational catching depth.

August 12, 2018 03:32 PM
Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.

With Francisco Cervelli (undisclosed) sidelined for the time being, the Pirates will call up Stallings to provide major-league catching depth. His stay may be short-lived if Cervelli avoids a disabled list stint, though. Jordan Luplow was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

With Francisco Cervelli (concussion) coming off the disabled list, this was the obvious move. Stallings will continue to serve as organizational catching depth at Triple-A.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Returns to Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis prior to Sunday's game against the Phillies, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports.

He did not make a start while in the majors. The 28-year-old returns to Indianapolis, where he has a .289/.335/.396 slash line in 42 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The catcher took another trip on the shuttle back to the big leagues with Francisco Cervelli (concussion) landing on the 7-day disabled list. He'll serve as Elias Diaz's backup for however long Cervelli must remain sidelined. Stallings is hitting a useful .289/.335/.396 slash for Indianapolis but has not yet taken a big-league at-bat in 2018.
