|Yankees could deal Francisco Cervelli |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) The Yankees could deal catcher Francisco Cervelli, according to the New York Post.
Cervelli is out of options, and the team has viable backups in Austin Romine, J.R. Murphy and Gary Sanchez. Other major-league teams have already sent scouts to look at the Yankees. Those teams include the White Sox, Giants, Tigers, Astros and Twins.
Last season, Cervelli hit .269 in 52 at-bats.
|Francisco Cervelli focused on being a 'better player' |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/10/14) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli, who missed time in 2013 due to elbow and hand injuries, has been focused on getting ready for the season since being cleared for full activity in mid-December, according to MLB.com. Cervelli also served a 50-game suspension last season for his involvment in the Biogenesis investigation.
"Last year was a disaster, and we just take the positives out of everything for being a better person and a better player," Cervelli said.
Cervelli enters camp as the team's backup catcher after New York signed Brian McCann to a five-year contract in the offseason.
"I've just got to keep working, having fun and playing baseball," Cervelli said. "Do what they ask me to do, and I know what's my role now, but you never know."

(1/16/14) The Yankees and catcher Francisco Cervelli avoided arbitration by coming to terms on a one-year deal worth $700,000, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Thursday. Cervelli dealt with finger and elbow injuries but still managed to bat .269/.377/.500 with three home runs and eight RBI in 52 at-bats last season.
|Yankees will retain Francisco Cervelli in 2014 |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(11/16/13) The Yankees will tender a contract to catcher Francisco Cervelli for the 2014 season, the Journal News reports.
Cervelli is the early favorite to be the team's starting catcher next season. He hit .269/.377/.500 with three home runs and eight RBI in 52 at-bats last season while dealing with finger and elbow injuries.
|Yankees activate Francisco Cervelli, Corban Joseph |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(11/4/13) The Yankees have activated catcher Francisco Cervelli and first baseman Corban Joseph off the 60-day disabled list Monday.
Cervelli played in only 17 games this season due to a fractured finger and sore elbow. He should be fine for spring training.
The 25-year-old Joseph played in 49 games between Triple-A and the majors due to an undisclosed injury problem. He'll be ready for spring training as well.
|Francsico Cervelli didn't do himself any favors by getting caught up in the Biogenesis scandal, having to serve a 50-game suspension while trying to return from a broken hand and stress reaction in his elbow. He ended up playing in 17 games in 2013, hitting .269, with three home runs. With Brian McCann and Austin Romine in the mix, Cervelli isn't assured playing time. Plus, as an outed PED user, there's some worry that his performance may suffer without the help of drugs. Cervelli could hit .270, but there's no clear indication of how much rust he'll have to shake off, how much an effect the drug suspension will have on him, or how much playing time he'll have. He can be left undrafted in most formats.
