Francisco Cervelli sidelined by migraines


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli is dealing with migraines that were severe enough to keep him out of action Friday and Saturday, but they are not related to his history of concussions, manager Joe Girardi told The Star-Ledger.

"From the neurologist standpoint, it wasn't concussion-related," Girardi said. "I'm a migraine sufferer. They're no fun. Sometimes they come in clusters where you'll get them a couple of days in a row and that's even worse. Most of the days I can take my medicine and I'm OK. But a couple of times I've had to go to the hospital to get rid of them. Hopefully it's something he's going through and he'll get through it."

Cervelli is day to day at this point, though he is not an everyday player anyways, so it is not clear when he is expected back in the lineup.

Francisco Cervelli appears to win backup job


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli appears to have won the team's job as backup catcher, according to the Star-Ledger.

Catcher Austin Romine was seen clearing out his locker Wednesday, indicating he will be sent down. The move shouldn't come as a big surprise. Cervelli performed well in a limited opportunity last season, and hit .455 during spring training. He was a popular trade candidate throughout the spring, but no deal was reached.


Brian McCann could benefit Yankees off the diamond


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) The value of newcomer Brian McCann for the Yankees extends beyond his all-around talent as a player, the New York Daily News has claimed. He also provides lineup depth that might allow the Yankees to trade out-of-options Francisco Cervelli to a team in need.

Among those potential targets is Pittsburgh, which lost backup and former Yankee Chris Stewart on Wednesday to a knee injury. The Pirates boast a plethora of relievers, which could fill a need for New York.


Francisco Cervelli linked to White Sox again


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli is being linked to the White Sox again, according to The New York Post.

A deal involving Cervelli and White Sox second baseman Gordon Beckham is "not impossible." The Yankees are in need of infield help, while the White Sox could use help behind the plate. Chicago has already been linked to Cervelli this offseason, sending scouts to watch him play a few weeks ago. The Yankees have some depth behind the plate, and are looking to capitalize on a strong spring by Cervelli.

Cervelli hit .269/.377/.500 in 52 at-bats last year. Beckham hit .267/.322/.372 in 371 at-bats.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2014) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli clubbed a pair of solo home runs during Wednesday's spring game against the Tigers, and now leads the team in home runs (three).

Francisco Cervelli drawing trade interest from White Sox, others


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli is drawing significant trade interest, with the White Sox among the teams monitoring him this spring, MLBDailyDish.com reports.
