by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

I can keep them both involved and active. A lot of times when you can do that, you can get more productivity."

After batting .132 in his first 32 games, Romine is batting .353 (12 for 34) with one home run, four doubles, four RBI, five runs and six walks in his last 12 games (10 starts).

"I started in a bad place, and I’ll be the first one to admit that," Romine said. "I was struggling. It was hard. But I’m swinging at better pitches, getting into better counts, and walking. It’s slowing down. That’s a huge thing in this game. If you don’t slow this game down, you’re not going to see results. So that’s all I’m trying to do. I’m trying to finish this year strong. … I can do this. I can hit, like I’ve always hit in the minor leagues. I’m trying to prove it to them and to everybody."

"I don’t want to throw too much at him too quickly," manager Joe Girardi said, per The Star-Ledger. "I want him to get familiar with the guys that are here. He has a sense of who they are. He’s had a chance to catch all of them at some point in spring training, whether it was a side or a game in the minor leagues, but you want him to be familiar with the guys."

Prior to his recall, Romine was flourishing at Triple-A, especially at the plate. He had a .333/.391/.796 slash line in 14 games.

"We got rid of the leg kick -- getting the foot down early, seeing the ball -- and that’s really what I’ve been working on lately. Seeing the ball, and now it’s a matter of doing it," Romine said.

While Romine missed most of the 2012 season recovering from a back injury, he said he's healthy and ready to contribute on the major-league level while Francisco Cervelli is on the disabed list.

"It’s fixed now," Romine said of his back. "It’s completely healthy, and that’s because of a routine I developed with physical therapists and the Yankees medical staff. It’s really working for me and keeping me strong. It takes me about 35, 40 minutes to do every day, and it’s just become part of my routine. I really don’t even notice it anymore."
