The Pirates tendered Cervelli -- a second-year, arbitration-eligible player -- a contract offer prior to Tuesday's deadline.
The Pirates will likely give Cervelli the keys to their starting catching job in 2015. If he's able to stay healthy -- Cervelli has never appeared in 100 games in a season before -- then he could help fantasy owners. The former Yankee has compiled a career .278/.348./729 slash line in 785 plate appearances in parts of seven seasons with New York.
