Diamondbacks' Chris Iannetta: Comes up with pinch-hit homer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/29/2017) Iannetta had a two-run pinch-hit home run to tie the game in the ninth inning in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Pirates.

The clutch two-run dinger gave Tony Watson his third blown save of the season before the Bucs walked off in the bottom of the ninth on Andrew McCutchen's long ball. The home run was Iannetta's sixth of the season. With Arizona rotating three catchers in -- Chris Herrmann and Jeff Mathis are the others -- it's hard to consistently rely on Iannetta in anything outside of two-catcher or deep NL-only leagues.


Pirates' Chris Stewart: Should be OK after hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/29/2017) 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.

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.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/29/2017) Fryer went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Rockies.

The backup catcher got a rare start with Yadier Molina sitting and was able to rope his third extra-base hit of the season. It was also Fryer's first multi-hit effort of the season, although it's worth noting he's seen just 32 at-bats to date.


Cubs' Willson Contreras: Heads to bench Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/29/2017) Contreras is out of the lineup Monday against the Padres.

Contreras has started two of the last three games, but he'll give way to Miguel Montero behind the plate for the afternoon contest. The 25-year-old backstop is coming off a productive outing Sunday, as Contreras went 2-for-5 with a solo home run on the afternoon. He now has five long balls on the season, three of which have come in the month of May.


Pirates' Francisco Cervelli: Takes seat Monday

(5/29/2017) Cervelli is not in the lineup Monday against the Diamondbacks, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

After catching 18 innings over the last two days, Cervelli will head to the bench for a breather as Chris Stewart draws the start behind the dish. The backstop has been looking solid at the dish, going 11-for-26 (.423) over his last eight games (seven starts).

(5/29/2017) Iannetta is not in the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Despite knocking three homers over his past five games, Iannetta will head to the bench for Monday's series opener. Jeff Mathis will draw the start behind the dish in his place.


Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Collects two hits in start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/29/2017) Barnes went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

The veteran catcher received his lone start of the week in place of Yasmani Grandal and delivered at the plate. Barnes has been effective as a backup, slashing .264/.381/.528 in 63 plate appearances.


Phillies' Andrew Knapp: Paces offense in loss to Reds
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/28/2017) Knapp went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Reds.

It was Knapp's third homer of the season and first since last Tuesday. The 25-year-old is more of a utility bench bat, backing up Cameron Rupp behind the dish and Tommy Joseph at first base, so he's unlikely to see consistent at-bats for the Phils unless an injury opens up more time.
