After a 1-1 tie here in Port Charlotte, the Yankees are still in the dark about catcher Francisco Cervelli.
The Yankees announced before today’s game that Cervelli’s MRI results had been sent to New York to be examined by team doctors. When the game ended a few minutes ago, Joe Girardi said that the team still had not heard back. We’ve been assured that, if the team gets an answer tonight, it will be announced.
“Any time you miss time in this game it’s a setback for you, because this is a job where everyone wants your job,” Girardi said this morning. “… If Cervi is down for a little bit, we have an idea of what Cervi can do. We’ve seen him play very well at this level, so the evaluation is a lot of the young kid, Montero.”
