    News

    Cervelli is out of Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.

    Impact

    He is sitting in the day game following Wednesday night's game, in which he went 3-for-3. Cervelli has now hit safely in eight of his last nine games, and boasts a .424 average with two home runs over that stretch. Chris Stewart will start behind the dish and hit eighth against righty Jimmy Nelson.

    News

    Cervelli went 3-for-3 -- all singles -- with a walk and an RBI against the Brewers on Wednesday.

    Impact

    He's really been rolling lately, racking up 14 hits in 33 at-bats (.424) over the last nine games -- Cervelli's longest streak of starts in the 2017 campaign. This is about as good as it gets for the veteran backstop, whose modest pop and inconsistent ways at the plate make him a fantasy option almost exclusively in NL-only and two-catcher leagues.

    News

    Cervelli went 2-for-3 with his fifth homer Tuesday against Milwaukee.

    Impact

    He's caught a season-high eight straight games and is playing his best baseball in 2017. Cervelli is hitting .367 in his last 30 at-bats, with two homers and seven RBI. More importantly, he's found a way to stay healthy since coming back from concussion-like symptoms in early July. Cervelli ranks fourth among National League catchers (with at least 204 at-bats) with a .353 on-base percentage.
