Yankees C Austin Romine loses 15 pounds, shoots for No. 2 role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I want it," Austin Romine said. "I want to go out there and prove to them that I want it. That’s why I’m here early and I just want to hit the ground running and go after it and bust my (butt) to make the team."

The Yankees will hold a position battle for the right to serve as Brian McCann's backup after Francisco Cervelli was traded this offseason. Romine showed up to camp 10 days early to prove he's ready for the role after his offseason training program.

"We focused a lot on lower body, which as a catcher is perfect," Romine said. "(Andrew) sped me up a little bit. We worked on some speed. Being a catcher, you don’t want to be labeled as a slow guy. We worked on that. He blew me out of the water on everything because he’s fast as heck. We worked hard. That’s where the 15 pounds came off and I feel really good."

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.

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

"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."
