The Pirates declined to tender Heineman a contract for 2023, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Thrust into a regular role with Pittsburgh after joining the team on a waiver claim, Heineman slumped to a .211/.277/.254 slash line in 52 games with the Pirates. He missed time due to a groin injury and a concussion. His experience could keep him around the game for a while yet, as catching depth is always in demand.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Heineman has spent nearly the entirety of his career as organizational depth, reaching Triple-A for the first time in 2015, yet failing to make his major-league debut until 2019. He took another step forward in 2020, serving as the Opening Day backstop for the Giants and earning a career-best 50 plate appearances. In 62 career plate appearances, he's managed just a .208/.288/.302 line. While a small sample to judge a player's potential in most scenarios, Heineman has topped a .130 ISO in just one season in the minor leagues. After being unseated as the starting catcher for the Giants by a combination of Joey Bart and Chadwick Tromp, Heineman was released and has since signed a minor-league deal with the Cardinals. Pending the free agency of long-time starter Yadier Molina. Heineman could compete for backup duties with his above-average defensive ability being his most compelling contribution.
