Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Extends hit streak to four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The catcher appears to be coming out of a recent slump, collecting five hits in his last 13 at-bats. In addition to his home run Wednesday, Stallings has hit a pair of doubles and walked twice in four games. Overall, he's slashing .246/.370/.393 with a 12:16 BB:K that suggests his batting average may have room to rise.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Slump continues Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After starting the season batting .333 in his first 10 games, Stallings is hitless in his last 18 at-bats. He remains the team's primary option at catcher over Michael Perez, so he could hurt fantasy teams until he regains his early April batting stroke. Stallings is slashing .208/.345/.292 in 55 plate appearances.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Drives home three in winning effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk, three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Padres.

Stallings got the Pirates on the board in the first with a two-run double off the wall in left field and came around to score after Erik Gonzalez launched a double of his own the very next at-bat. The 31-year-old tallied his third RBI of the game the following inning on a single to right, stretching the Pirates' lead to 5-3. Stallings had a rocky start to the year, as he managed just two hits in his first 14 at-bats, but he's come to life recently with eight hits, five RBI and four runs scored in his last five games.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Plates two runs Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a walk in Saturday's win over the Cubs.

Stallings has endured a slow start to the season and even went through a four-game hitless stretch, but he's now reached base at least twice in each of his last two contests. The backstop is not known for his offensive ability and his bat has been lacking in the first few games of this season as well, but he is slowly moving in the right direction, hitting safely in back-to-back games for the first time in 2021.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Slow start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings is 3-for-16 with one double and five walks in the season's first seven games.

He reached base three times Thursday with a single and two walks. After just 21 plate appearances, Stallings is batting .188 but holds a 5:5 BB:K, and his .062 ISO is below his career mark of .108. The catcher has hit better on the road (.274/.336/.406) than at PNC Park (.244/.323/.328) in his career, and the team plays its next six games at home.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Excited to start again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings enters the 2021 campaign as the Pirates' clear-cut starter behind the plate, DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

The 31-year-old, who slashed .248/.326/.376 in 143 plate appearances last year, led the NL in innings caught (345.1) while finishing second in Gold Glove voting. Stallings' .702 OPS was slightly above the league average (.695) for catchers. He's never caught more than 700 innings in a season, but he's ready for the challenge. "My body really held up well," he said Friday. "I felt good. So I was really encouraged about that. I don't think anything will change." Newly acquired catchers Michael Perez and Tony Wolters are expected to compete for the backup job.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Comes to terms with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stallings agreed to a one-year contract with the Pirates on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

The 31-year-old backstop hit .248/.326/.376 with three home runs in 143 plate appearances last year. He was also a strong defensive catcher, so he should be the primary backstop in Pittsburgh this season.

Pirates' Jacob Stallings: Sidelined with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates placed Stallings on the 7-day concussion injured list Sunday.

He'll wrap up the 2019 campaign with a .248/.326/.376 slash line with three home runs and 18 RBI across 143 plate appearances over 42 games.
