Cervelli granted release by Pirates, aims to join contender

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Pirates are parting ways with veteran catcher Francisco Cervelli, who's worked his way back from another concussion and is hoping to catch on with a contender.

The Pirates announced Thursday they had requested unconditional release waivers on the 33-year-old Cervelli. He's played 34 games this season, hitting .193 with one home run and five RBIs.

Cervelli has suffered several concussions in his career, and hasn't played in the majors since his most recent one on May 25.
