Stewart (hamstring) ran curves Wednesday and hopes to progress to running the bases in the near future, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart is slowly making his way back from a hamstring strain that has kept him sidelined since May. Once Stewart is able to run the bases, he'll likely head out on a rehab assignment, at which point there should be a clearer return date for him.

Stewart (hamstring) resumed baseball activities Tuesday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stewart has been sidelined since the end of May, but it seems like he's finally progressed in his rehab, meaning that a rehab assignment may come in the next week or so barring any extraneous circumstances. Until he's ready for full action again, Elias Diaz will act as the backup catcher behind Francisco Cervelli.

Stewart (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the injury originally wasn't thought to be anything overly serious, Stewart tried testing it out prior to Tuesday's contest and failed, prompting him to hit the DL. A possible timetable for his return should become clearer following Wednesday's tests. In the meantime, Elias Diaz will serve as the Pirates' backup catcher.

Stewart was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained left hamstring.

EDGE Analysis

While it was originally thought Stewart wasn't going to need a trip to the DL, the Pirates have decided to err on the side of caution with the 35-year-old backstop. Stewart was slashing .225/.295/.350 through 16 games (40 at-bats) before landing on the DL. Stewart will be eligible to return on June 8, while Elias Diaz was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis and will serve as the Pirates' backup catcher in his absence.

Stewart suffered a minor hamstring injury in Monday's game against Arizona and is expected to be fine, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Consider Stewart day-to-day for now. The Pirates may choose to let Stewart rest the leg, which could mean a couple of consecutive starts for his backstop mate Francisco Cervelli, but Stewart shouldn't need a trip to the disabled list.

Stewart is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Fancisco Cervelli will draw back into the lineup and spell Stewart on Saturday with the Pirates facing Taijuan Walker. Stewart got the start Friday but went 0-for-3 on the night. At this point, it appears Stewart will continue to see infrequent playing time behind Cervelli.

Stewart will start at catcher and bat eighth in the order Monday against the Reds, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Francisco Cervelli (foot) nursing a foot injury, Stewart will be behind the dish for the second day in a row after going 1-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's game against the Marlins. Cervelli has said that he doesn't expect to land on the disabled list, so if that holds true, Stewart will only be in line for a short-term run as the Pirates' primary option behind the plate.
