Chris Stewart: Opts out of contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart opted out of his contract with the Padres on Saturday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

The 37-year-old had played 19 games for Triple-A El Paso, hitting .277/.333/.354. Stewart has appeared in at least one big-league game in 12 of the last 13 seasons but might be at the end of the road at this point, as he hasn't hit above .214 in the majors since 2015.

Padres' Chris Stewart: Invited to Padres' camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Thursday which includes an invitation to spring training.

Stewart split time between Atlanta and Arizona in 2018, appearing in just eight big-league games between both stops. With Austin Hedges and Francisco Mejia both ahead of Stewart on the organizational depth chart, the veteran backstop doesn't figure to spend much (if any) time in the majors in 2019.

Diamondbacks' Chris Stewart: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks purchased Stewart's contract from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

The veteran was acquired Thursday from the Braves and finds himself on the major-league roster two days later. However, Stewart will struggle to find much playing time, now serving as the club's No. 4 catcher in an already busy time share between the top three options.

Diamondbacks' Chris Stewart: Sent to Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was traded from the Braves to the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Robert Murray of The Athletic Wisconsin reports.

Stewart appeared in just five games for the Braves before being traded, struggling to an unsightly .214/.250/.214 slash line. He put together a similarly poor line with Triple-A Gwinnett, slashing .219/.299/.277 across 47 games. The veteran backstop should serve as organizational catching depth for Arizona.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves outrighted Stewart to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday.

Stewart lost his spot on the Braves' active and 40-man rosters after Kurt Suzuki overcame a short-term absence due to a triceps injury. Atlanta later brought in Rene Rivera on a waiver claim to serve as the organization's No. 3 catching option.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves designated Stewart for assignment Sunday, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Stewart's removal from the active and 40-man rosters clears a spot with the big club for corner infielder Rio Ruiz, who was promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett in a corresponding move. The 35-year-old backstop had been serving as the Braves' backup catcher the last few days, but he fell to No. 3 on the depth chart after Kurt Suzuki (triceps) returned to the lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Contract purchased from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart had his contract selected from Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Stewart will serve as the club's backup catcher behind Tyler Flowers since Kurt Suzuki is dealing with an elbow contusion. In a corresponding move, Michael Reed was sent down to Gwinnett.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Stewart received unexpected playing time in the opening week of the season with Tyler Flowers (oblique) and Kurt Suzuki (hand) both out injured. With Suzuki now able to return and Carlos Perez in the fold, Stewart was no longer needed, so he'll return to being organizational depth at the Triple-A level.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart was designated for assignment Wednesday.

This leaves the Braves with Kurt Suzuki and Carlos Perez behind the dish while Tyler Flowers (oblique) misses the first month of the season. Stewart will provide organizational depth at Triple-A if he clears waivers.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Resting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.

With Tyler Flowers (oblique) on the disabled list and Kurt Suzuki (hand) not expected back in the lineup until Friday, Stewart has temporarily taken over as the Braves' primary catcher, starting each of the past four contests. Manager Brian Snitker will give Stewart a much-needed rest for the Wednesday afternoon affair, allowing Carlos Perez to make his team debut behind the dish. Assuming Suzuki is ready to go Friday, it appears likely that Stewart will see only a couple of starts per week going forward.

Braves' Chris Stewart: Could break camp with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is still in the running for the final spot on the Braves' Opening Day roster, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

With Johan Camargo (back) headed for the DL, the Braves are deciding between an additional utility player like Danny Santana, or a third catcher in Stewart, which would allow the team to use Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki as late-game pinch hitters. For his part, Stewart has had a decent spring in his limited opportunities, going 4-for-12, but the 36-year-old is highly unlikely to see enough playing time to have any real fantasy value even if he does win the job.

February 14, 2018 03:04 PM
Braves' Chris Stewart: Signs with Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart signed a one-year major-league contract with the Braves on Wednesday.

The 11-year veteran has played for six teams in his major-league career. The journeyman backup has only once received more than 190 plate appearances. He'll begin the season as the Braves' third catcher behind Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki, though his major-league contract means he has a good chance to be the first catcher called upon in the event of an injury.

Chris Stewart: Club declines option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart will not return to the Pirates after the club elected to decline its $1.5 million option for the 2018 season, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Stewart played in 51 games for Pittsburgh in 2017, but he hit just .183/.241/.221 with no home runs and four RBI. He will look to latch on with another organization this winter, although it's unlikely that he will make much of a fantasy impact.

Pirates' Chris Stewart: Sits again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs.

Stewart had started four straight games earlier in the week, but Labor Day will mark his third consecutive absence from the starting lineup. Elias Diaz, who is 3-for-17 at the dish since getting the call Aug. 26, will draw yet another start Monday.

September 3, 2017 02:04 PM
Pirates' Chris Stewart: Out of Sunday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

While Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) is on the DL, Stewart has drawn four of the last five starts behind the plate for Pittsburgh. Sunday will mark Stewart's second consecutive day out of the lineup, however, as the team will turn to Elias Diaz as it attempts to take the series from Cincinnati.

Pirates' Chris Stewart: Gives way to Diaz on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

With Francisco Cervelli (quadriceps) returning to the disabled list Saturday, the Pirates have an opening for regular starts behind the plate, but it looks as though Stewart may be forced to share time with Elias Diaz, who receives the nod Sunday. Even if Stewart were to take on the bulk of the catching duties, he would likely do more harm than good for fantasy owners, given the middling .469 OPS he carries for the season.

July 4, 2017 01:44 PM
Pirates' Chris Stewart: Bows out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is out of the lineup Monday against the Phillies.

After starting four of the past six games behind the plate, Stewart's opportunities to see regular at-bats will likely draw to a close with the Pirates bringing back Francisco Cervelli (concussion) from the 7-day disabled list Monday. Stewart has never been known for his aptitude with the bat anyway, so it's unlikely that fantasy owners in NL-only leagues were relying on him for much production while Cervelli was sidelined.

Pirates' Chris Stewart: Collects fourth start in six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart will start behind the plate and bat eighth Sunday against the Giants, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

It initially appeared that the higher-upside Elias Diaz would settle in as the Pirates' primary starter behind the dish while Francisco Cervelli (concussion) has been sidelined, but those duties seem to have fallen to Stewart, who will pick up his fourth start in six games Sunday. Stewart collected only two hits in those previous three starts and is batting .203 on the season, so it will be difficult to wring much fantasy value out of him while he retains the top spot on the depth chart.

Pirates' Chris Stewart: In lineup Wednesday against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart is in the lineup for Wednesday's game, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

After spending three weeks on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, Stewart will be making his first start since late May when the Pirates face off with Milwaukee on Wednesday. The catcher will bat eighth in his return.

June 18, 2017 03:16 PM
Pirates' Chris Stewart: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stewart (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Stewart had been sidelined since May 30 with a strained left hamstring but was recently able to aggressively run the bases, which was his final hurdle before returning to live action. He'll slot back in as the reserve catcher behind Francisco Cervelli.
