Yankees catcher Austin Romine still unsure of role
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine still doesn't know where he will be when the season begins, reports NJ.com.
Romine, who is battling with John Ryan Murphy for the backup role at catcher, is hitting a low .143 in 28 plate appearances this spring.
It's hard for Romine to not think about what will happen.
"Being a human, you're going to think about it," he continued. "It is your career, it's your future, stuff like that. So best I can do is go out there and show them I can catch."
With four games left, Romine will continue to try to perform at the highest level.
"I'm just playing. I'm playing to make this team, but I'm also playing for the teams out there," Romine said. "But I want nothing more than to make it on this team. That's my goal."

Report: Phillies, Padres eyeing Yankees C Austin Romine
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) The Phillies and the Padres have expressed interest in acquiring reserve catcher Austin Romine from the Yankees, according to George King of the New York Post.
Romine, who is out of minor-league options, is "slightly behind" John Ryan Murphy in the race to lock up New York's backup catching gig, per NJ.com. If the Yankees don't trade Romine before Opening Day, they'll run a chance of losing him through waivers.
Romine was just 3 for 13 in seven appearances with the Yankees in 2014. He hit .242/.300/.365 with six home runs and 33 RBI in 285 at-bats with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
