Pirates place Jacob Stallings on concussion list
The Pittsburgh Pirates placed catcher Jacob Stallings on the 7-day concussion list.
Stallings caught all 10 innings on Sunday and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout, but now he's going to miss at least a week. The Pirates selected the contract of catcher Taylor Davis from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding roster move. Michael Perez is starting at catcher in Monday's series opener against right-hander Vladimir Gutierrez and the Cincinnati Reds.
numberFire’s models project Perez for 8.7 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Monday’s slate. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Reds have an implied total of 5.3 runs, which is the highest in the majors on Monday. Gutierrez is registering a 17.7 strikeout percentage and an 8.9 walk percentage this season, with a 4.28 xERA and a .315 xwOBA.
