Cervelli is out of the lineup Saturday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Eric Fryer will catch for Jameson Taillon as Cervelli gets a well-deserved rest after five consecutive starts. Cervelli is hitting at a .320 clip this month but he's still without a home run for the season, and the absence of power has him currently outside the top-25 at the position in terms of earned fantasy value.

Cervelli is out of Sunday's lineup against Miami.

EDGE Analysis

Cervelli has been phenomenal at the plate lately, hitting .400/.488/.500 over the last 14 days. However, he'll sit out as Eric Fryer starts behind the dish for Sunday's outing versus the Marlins. Cervelli will likely return to action Monday when the Pirates face the Astros.

Cervelli went 1-for-3 with a walk Friday, extending his batting streak to five games (8-for-17).

EDGE Analysis

He's hitting the ball with better authority in recent games. On Friday, he flew out to the deepest part of PNC Park in left-center's "North Side Notch." Since returning from a broken hamate bone July 19, Cervelli is slashing .345/.435/.418 in 69 plate appearances. He has three doubles in his last six starts and seems capable of once again helping fantasy owners in the batting average category.

EDGE Analysis

He started the previous four games behind the dish, and will get Wednesday's day game off following the night game Tuesday. Eric Fryer will start behind the dish and hit eighth in Cervelli's place.

Cervelli went 3-for-4 with his career-high 5th stolen base Saturday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

He appeared to be in pain at the plate -- his wrist hurts whenever he swings and misses -- but fantasy owners will likely take three singles any time. Cervelli also drew a walk. The catcher probably won't play healthy again until next season, but in the meantime he's still better than some other catching options in fantasy.

Cervelli (wrist) is back behind the dish, hitting seventh Saturday against the Dodgers, MLB.com's Adam Berry reports.

EDGE Analysis

He missed two games after exiting Wednesday's game with wrist discomfort. Cervelli will once again return to his starting catcher duties, offering owners in on-base leagues a strong .371 OBP, but bringing very little to the table in standard formats.

Cervelli (wrist) is out of the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

He suffered a wrist injury in Wednesday's game and the team doctors were taking a lot of time evaluating him prior to the release of Thursday's lineup. Elias Diaz was spotted in the clubhouse, so Cervelli could be ticketed for the DL. Eric Fryer will start behind the dish Thursday and hit eighth.
