Pittsburgh Pirates Player News: Catchers

News: Stallings was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cervical neck strain Sunday.
Impact: Stallings is out of options, so his move to the injured list allows the Pirates to activate Elias Diaz (illness) without needing to designate him for assignment. It's unclear how seriously he's injured or when he's expected to return.
News: Diaz (illness) was reinstated from the injured list Sunday.
Impact: A viral infection stole all of Diaz's spring training and forced him to spend the first few weeks of the season getting up to speed on a rehab assignment. He looks to be good to go after hitting .412 in nine minor-league games. He'll take the backup catcher job behind Francisco Cervelli, with Jacob Stallings (neck) heading to the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
