Jorge Posada will need to take regular days off this season, but the Yankees let Jose Molina leave through free agency and left the role of backup catcher in the hands of Francisco Cervelli. He has a track record of defensive success, but the Yankees believe Cervelli’s bat will develop enough to have an impact at the plate as well as behind it.

Then again, CC Sabathia might start every game this season if the Yankees would let him. The team’s ace threw his first bullpen session on Saturday and felt strong, despite the added workload of last year’s playoffs. Today’s notebook also has news on Hal Steinbrenner, A.J. Burnett and the decision to start a fifth-starter candidate in the spring opener.
