27-Year-Old CatcherC

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Serven received his first big-league promotion in mid-May last season shortly after turning 27. He belted two homers in his second major-league game and wound up with three long balls and an .859 OPS through the end of June as he stole away significant playing time from Elias Diaz. Serven then came crashing back to earth with a .450 OPS across his final 41 games. The Rockies failed to upgrade at catcher over the offseason, so Serven is in line to serve as Diaz's understudy again. He could work his way into a 1A and 1B situation, which might be enough for deep league attention at least for games at Coors Field. Read Past Outlooks

Back on bench with Diaz healthy

August 23, 2022
Serven is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Elias Diaz will check back in behind the plate Tuesday after being reinstated from the injured list Sunday, spelling an end to Serven's three-game starting streak. The return of Diaz will also likely result in Serven falling into a timeshare at catcher, if not the clear-cut No. 2 role. While Diaz was on the shelf with the hand injury he picked up Aug. 10, Serven slashed .185/.267/.444.
