Chris Stewart C PIT 3 Days

Stewart (hamstring) is taking batting practice Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Stewart is in danger of opening his season on the disabled list, in which case Tony Sanchez would break camp as the backup catcher. Even if he isn't ready to start the season, Stewart should be available within the first few weeks.

Stewart (hamstring) will miss the next two weeks and could begin the season on the disabled list, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Stewart is in line for additional playing time over 2014 if he can stay healthy. He batted .294/.362/.331 in 154 at-bats last season, though only five of his 40 hits went for extra bases. Tony Sanchez would likely take his backup spot if Pittsburgh decides to disable Stewart.

Stewart is suffering from a minor hamstring issue, but manager Clint Hurdle hopes he will return Tuesday, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Stewart's injury appears to be minor, but it's worth noting in case it turns into something more. He's slated to serve as the Pirates backup catcher in 2015, but Tony Sanchez is also in the mix.

Stewart and the Pirates avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.225 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Stewart served as the Pirates' backup catcher last season and is the favorite to do so again in 2015. The Pirates' new primary catcher, Francisco Cervelli, has had trouble staying healthy in his career, so Stewart could see more action than reserve catchers typically do.

Stewart (wrist) was included on the Pirates' Wild Card roster.

Russell Martin (hamstring) is expected to start, but Stewart is healthy enough to assume his typical backup duties. Tony Sanchez will be available as well in case both players experience complications with their injuries.

X-rays on Stewart's left wrist came back negative, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Stewart exited Sunday's game after his hand caught the backswing in one of pitcher Johnny Cueto's at-bats. No fractures were revealed, but he does have a serious bruise on his left hand, and should be considered day-to-day moving forward. Russell Martin (hamstring) will likely be ready for Wednesday's NL Wild Card matchup, but if not, Stewart would be the likely backup, provided the swelling goes down.

Stewart left Sunday's game with a hand/wrist injury, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Stewart was hit on his hand on the backswing of a Johnny Cueto RBI hit, and had to be removed from the game as a result. Tony Sanchez came into the game to serve as his replacement. Sanchez could be in line to see extra work if a catcher is needed in a tiebreaker game Monday or Wild Card contest Wednesday, as fellow backstop Russell Martin is also nursing a hamstring injury.

Stewart went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Tuesday, raising his batting average to a season-high .283.

He only has 20 at-bats since June, but might be an option in daily leagues on days when scheduling is thin. For the season, Stewart is batting .283/.374/.313 with no homers and six RBI in 99 at-bats.
