Cervelli is out of Thursday's lineup against the Brewers.
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.
Cervelli went 3 for 3 with an RBI Wednesday as the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2. He ended the game with a .271 batting average.
He's 14 for 33 with eight RBIs during a nine-game stretch.
Cervelli went 3-for-3 -- all singles -- with a walk and an RBI against the Brewers on Wednesday.
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.
Cervelli went 2-for-3 with his fifth homer Tuesday against Milwaukee.
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.
Francisco Cervelli went 2 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Pittsburgh Pirates topped the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3. The homer was his fifth of the season. He ended the game with a .260 batting average.
Cervelli is 11 for 30 (.367) with two homers, a double and seven RBIs over his last eight games.
