Description: Cubs catcher Miguel Montero was not in Monday's lineup versus the Nationals.
Insight: It's just a routine day off. David Ross is catching. Montero has been a solid catching option for fantasy owners this season, batting .267 with five homers, 16 RBI and 10 runs scored. He's playing like he did in Arizona back in 2011-12.
Description: Indians catcher Yan Gomes has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.
Insight: Gomes missed six weeks with a right MCL sprain, which was good news considering his timetable for return was 6-8 weeks. He probably won't catch back-to-back games to start, so Roberto Perez will still see quite a bit of action, but it is safe to take Gomes off the DL spot.
Description: Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco felt pain while attempting to squat Friday and is not expected to do anything but pinch hit over the next few days.
Insight: Mesoraco has been unable to catch since April 12 and his hitting has been ugly, batting just .178 this season in 45 at-bats. He been one of fantasy's biggest disappointments this season after posting a .273 average with 25 HR and 80 RBI last season.
Description: Indians catcher Yan Gomes is expected to begin a rehab assignment of Friday and could return to the Indians lineup as soon as Sunday.
Insight: Gomes hit .278 with 21 home runs and 71 RBI last season and was a huge fantasy asset behind the plate. He'll likely split time when he returns until the team is sure his knee can handle catching everyday.
Description: Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday versus the Twins.
Insight: Cervelli left Tuesday's game after he took a foul tip directly off his mask. He went through all the concussion tests and is not experiecing any symptoms. Cervelli is hitting .297 with nine RBI this season.

Description: Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski was 1-for-3 with a run scored in the loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Description: Tigers catcher James McCann is not in the lineup on Tuesday versus the Brewers.
Insight: McCann is just getting a normal day off. He is hitting .293 with one home run and seven RBI in 75 at-bats since taking over for Alex Avila behind the plate. Bryan Holaday will start at catcher for Detroit on Tuesday.

Martin had a two-run single in the sixth, however, to hand the Blue Jays back the lead for good. Martin is hitting .298 with seven home runs and 23 RBI in 121 at-bats this season.
Description: Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli is not in Saturday's lineup against the Cubs.
Insight: Cervelli took a beating behind the plate on Friday, taking several foul balls in the chest, arms and head. He needed the day off even though he had a huge day at the plate on Friday. Chris Stewart is starting behind the plate for Pittsburgh.
Description: Rays catcher Rene Rivera went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the, 6-1, victory over the Yankees on Thursday.
Insight: Rivera hit a three-run home run in the third and then had an RBI-single in the fourth. Rivera, however, came into the game with just two hits in May, so he isn't fantasy relevant. He is batting .141/.190/.242 with two home runs and nine RBI this season.

Description: Royals catcher Salvador Perez is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: Just a routine rest day. He has a .283 BA with an .718 OPS and should be a solid catching option all season. Drew Butera will get the start but he and his .167 batting average aren't fantasy worthy.
