Yankees pregame: Who’s on first? The catcher

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Apr 08, 2014 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Francisco Cervelli, David RobertsonGreetings, Brian Heyman back with you. It’s been a while. I’m here at Yankee Stadium today, tomorrow and Friday. Chad’s Ironman streak is over. I lost count of his consecutive-day record. Even Ripken eventually took a day off.

Here’s a guy who is on duty today as well: Meet your new Yankees first baseman, Francisco Cervelli. At least for the start of this game with lefty Wei-Yin Chen going for the Orioles.

So when was the last time the backup catcher played first? He said he was 15. But he has worked out at first occasionally.

“If I’ve got to pitch, I’ll go, too,” Cervelli said. “It’s not like I feel like I’m Mark Teixeira, but I think I’m going to be comfortable with more games. I think it’s like every other position. If I feel I’m not going to catch the ball, I’m going to block it.”

Sounds like a catcher playing first base. Joe Girardi called this move “low risk.”

“I really believe he can do it,” Girardi said. “I do. We’re going to find out.”

Girardi said the reward, if it works out, is “more flexibility during the course of the season. We don’t anticipate Tex being out very long, but you never know.”

Why no Brian McCann at first?

“I’ve seen Cervelli take ground balls and I like what I’ve seen,” Girardi said. “I’ve never seen Brian McCann take a ground ball.”

Girardi said Shawn Kelley will probably get much of the closing opportunities with David Robertson now officially on the DL with his groin strain. But Girardi also said Kelley will probably not be available today. If that’s the case, who would close if need be?

“That a good question?” Girardi said. “Let’s see where they are in the lineup.”

Robertson has been replaced on the roster by Cesar Cabral, up from Triple-A. The lefty had  a strong spring training.

“We’re seeing some pretty tough left-handed hitters this week, and we feel he can help us,” Girardi said.

    I guess to have a “real” corner infielder they must NOT have the ability to play SS or 2B (or C), lol.

    We need more guys on this team that can’t play defense, that’s it!

  2. NYY_Girl_Penny April 8th, 2014 at 11:45 am

    since Jeter is guaranteed 2 spot this is my batting order

    Gardner LF

    Jeter SS

    Ellsbury CF

    Beltran RF

    Solarte 3B

    Cervelli 1B

    Soriano DH

    McCann C

    Roberts 2B

  3. NYY_Girl_Penny April 8th, 2014 at 11:48 am

    How is Solarte not our best hitter so far this season ? In fact, he is dominating everybody with .450 .522 .650 1.172 leading the team in RBI and tied with Ellsbury with most hits.

    I am not batting our hottest bat last.. that is just stupid.

  4. SweetSpot April 8th, 2014 at 11:49 am

    Solarte is not our best hitter he’s a young unproven player that’s had an excellent start to the season. He could just as easily go 1 for his next 16 and a manager should never make knee jerk moves like that based on limited data. Solarte is not in the same league as McCann and Soriano in terms of major-league experience and a proven track record offensively.

  5. NYY_Girl_Penny April 8th, 2014 at 11:49 am

    and I would be sitting Soriano for Ichiro too. Who’s been on fire.

  6. mick April 8th, 2014 at 11:49 am

    Kelley’s not ready today…oh my??!!?? what will we do chicken little..

  7. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 11:50 am

    Re-post:

    Yanks sure are rolling the dice this year. First they spend tons of money on the OF and go cheap on the infield relying a third baseman who’s almost never played third and second baseman who hasn’t played regularly in five years. They back these guys up with a plethora of career minor leaguers. And then, faced with a starting first baseman who hasn’t really played in a year and a half, they go an entire spring training without acquiring or grooming a back up, aside from giving their new 3b, who’s hardly ever played third base, a first baseman’s mitt. Then, after losing two or there top three bullpen arms, they replace one with veteran past his prime and fill the rest of the bullpen with rookies or backend starters.

    So now they have a 26 year old career minor leaguer as their starting 3b, a back up catcher playing first and a bullpen pieced together with Crazy Glue.

    Who knows, maybe it will work out?

  8. bbb51 April 8th, 2014 at 11:50 am

    Because you don’t flip around the lineup every few days based on who is “hot”.

    And you don’t put a guy who has been in the major leagues a week into the #5 spot of the Yankees lineup.

    Neither was Puig … Solarte has been hot since ST and deserves it. Sometimes you go with your gut and ride out the hot streak.. you’re more like a Girardi, do you have a notebook?

  10. blake April 8th, 2014 at 11:51 am

    Girardi is a good manager…..he’s getting better every year too

  11. austinmac April 8th, 2014 at 11:51 am

    With no Robertson or Kelley, I might suggest an offensive explosion would be helpful. Warren has pitched a lot too

  12. Chambliss April 8th, 2014 at 11:52 am

    I wish they would just go out and sign Kendrys Morales. Cervelli is a nice kid and I like his energy, but I am not keen on this experiment.

  13. SweetSpot April 8th, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Well if you want to call the manager of the first place team in the American League East stupid that is certainly your right, I don’t agree at all. You don’t want to put more pressure on Solarte and a manager has to be cognizant of the feelings of all his players. Joe Girardi thankfully is not the type of manager that would in essence disrespect a couple of excellent veteran players because of a few good games from a youngster. Also I think Solarte has been very valuable near the bottom of the batting order.

  14. SweetSpot April 8th, 2014 at 11:55 am

    You’re comparing Puig and Solarte? Really ?

  15. jmills April 8th, 2014 at 11:55 am

    Nice interview on the radio with Darrell Evans ( he of 414 homers himself ) over Hank Aaron. chicken_stanley, there’s Evans cards for you to sneak in that shoebox when you come up here.

    I wish they would simply because he’s probAbaly be their 3rd or 4th best hitter immediately

  17. Teddyballgame13 April 8th, 2014 at 11:55 am

    LOL @ putting Solarte in Puig’s league

  18. Mike_Boston April 8th, 2014 at 11:56 am

    Penny, have you considered that Solarte is hitting as well as he has so far because of where he is hitting in the lineup right now??? Moving him up in the order will obviously increase the expectations and thus the pressure to deliver. Let him be for the time being, joe is 1000x better qualified to make his lineup than anyone on this blog.
    Ease up on the barrage of negativity and smell the roses for Pete’s sake!

  19. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 11:58 am

    I could be wrong on this but the Cabral move may be a way to move Thornton from match up lefty to eighth inning guy or even possibly a closer. His stuff so far looks better to me than I expected and he has experience in a prominent bullpen role. He’s also getting paid too much just to face one hitter. Cabral then takes Thornton’s role. I have no idea what Nuno’s role is.

  20. NYY_Girl_Penny April 8th, 2014 at 11:59 am

    a bunch of people here who know absolutely nothing arguing with people who know very little. Congratulations Pippy you guys are genius.

  21. Teddyballgame13 April 8th, 2014 at 11:59 am

    Solarte had two of the luckiest hits I’ve ever seen against Houston, which contribute greatly to his astronomical first week of April BA. Solarte deserves to be in the lineup, but let’s not get crazy. Solarte might make a nice out-of-nowhere Shane Spenceresqe rookie contribution, but he’s no Puig….Puig is a legitimate five tool stud of a ballplayer.

  22. Shame Spencer April 8th, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    blake April 8th, 2014 at 11:51 am

    ———————

    He definitely has come a long way from being the ‘no ice cream’ guy.

    I still would have loved to have been there when he and Sherman got into it. This is a totally baseless theory, but I think Sherman’s lost some of his clout since Levine has edged in over Cash. I think Sherman mostly gets his info from Cashman and as he’s gotten marginalized so has Sherman a bit… he hasn’t broken many stories as of late, IIRC.

  23. SweetSpot April 8th, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    Penny there’s no reason to be hostile and to insult posters. Everyone’s sharing opinions just as you are.

  24. Mottsx April 8th, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    Nuno was supposed to be the longman incase Pineda/Tanaka had crappy starts since they’re no days off for 13 days. Nuno can get R/L both out. He’s a solid arm. Cabral is the new lefty specialist.

  25. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    I like this move of putting Cervy at first base a lot. In fact, I had been saying during spring training that the Yanks should consider using Cervy at second base if Roberts goes down. There have been some indications during the last couple years (admittedly a small sample)that Cervy may have developed some power to go along with his career.270 batting average. If this is so, then Cervy quietly may have become an .800-ish OPS guy. As a result, it would behoove the Yanks to find opportunities to get him into some games to see what Cervy can do.

  26. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    The Yankee offense has been patient and has done a real good job running up pitch counts. The problem is, when the starter exits, they aren’t making any hay on the middle relief. Maybe this is just SSS, but this looks an awful lot like last year’s team before the pitching collapsed. Real good starting pitching and bullpen, just enough hitting to win a close game and no power.

  27. blake April 8th, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    Playing Cervelli at 1B is the sort of thing Joe Madden would and be called a genius for

  28. blake April 8th, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Beltran and McCann have to hit for the offense to work right…..Gardner, Jeter , and Jacoby will create some run at the top but really for it to work they have to have Beltran and mcacann knock them in……

  29. Shame Spencer April 8th, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Who knows, maybe it will work out?

    ——————

    The club is carrying a lot of risk. People have wanted to poo-poo it, but this team has a really wide win/loss range this year, IMO. If everything breaks wrong like it did last year, the team can completely sink. If everything breaks right, it could be a helluva ride.

    I wish they’d have managed it better and minimized the risk wherever possible.

  30. SweetSpot April 8th, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Girardi’s dealing with some injuries, like every manager does, and is using the 40 man roster to the best of his ability.

  31. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    If Cervy is such a good idea to start at 1b now, don’t you think it’s just a little odd he never played there once during some 30 spring training games?

  32. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Girardi is trying to be creative with what he’s got.
    We haven’t heard the derogatory term “Binder Joe” much this year have we?
    Some people just let their biases effect their “thinking” or as I call it knee-JERK-isms.

  33. Hankflorida April 8th, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    austinmac April 8th, 2014 at 11:30 am
    Sizemore is simply an average player when healthy. If that is the goal, he may be able to achieve it. A corner infielder, in my years following the game, needs to have some pop. Sizemore has little.
    With little outfield power, the infield needs provide it. The lack of power, while it should improve, is going to be an issue all year.

    We have been spoiled by having Nettles or A-Rod and even Cano at 2nd while 1st basemen was usually a power position. On the other hand, I have always thought that a team should have power in the outfield. In 1941, the Yankees had Heinrich, DiMag and Keller who hit 30 home runs with Gordon at 2nd who almost did the same, but their 1st basemen, 2nd, SS, 3rd and catcher were not long ball hitters but played the role of table setters. When Gordon left and Colemen took his place, their catcher, Berra, became the power hitter. In other words, 2nd, SS and 3rd were never power positions in the 1950′s and 60′s but the outfield was until now, and this is a major change in Yankee planning. Hope it works!

    This is about trying to score runs today…..basically joe is trying to get the best lineup in there he can to both try and win the game and also maybe score enough that he won’t have to use his thin pen a lot……Cervelli is a good athlete with infield experience……I think he will be ok

  35. BoJo April 8th, 2014 at 12:09 pm

    We’ll soon know how comfortable Cervelli feels at first by whether or not he is wearing his chest protector.

  36. Shame Spencer April 8th, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    Good to see you GW!! Cervelli at 2B is an interesting proposition. Stop by more!

  37. blake April 8th, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    Exactly mick…. This isn’t a binder move….it’s a gutsy move …..maybe it backfires and Cervelli costs them the game at 1B…….but maybe he knocks in 3 runs and they win….

  38. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:13 pm

    blake-as I said knee-Jerks……biased. Not a good combination.

    ——

    They are really setting themselves up to be super second-guessed. Folks know me as being very critical of the position that just because the Yanks spent $200MM+ they should go out and sign a Drew or something and get the payroll up to last year’s because not doing so is just stupid. Drew has never been the answer for this team no matter what the payroll is. The much better criticism is, “hey you spent $200MM+ and you have a bunch of untried guys in your bullpen pitching outside their established roles, an unknown starting third baseman (who looks awesome mind you) and a back up catcher starting at 1b who has received no in-game reps at that position.

    When you think about it, it’s pretty crazy.

  40. blake April 8th, 2014 at 12:16 pm

    The Yankees bullpen has the 2nd best pen era in the league……it’s a small sample but before DRob got hurt they kinda looked pretty good as a whole.

  41. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    Hi Shame! Thanks for the kind sentiments.

  42. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    A few here want the final roster set for the year.
    It’s a work in progress. So easy to understand yet incomprehensible to some.

    Hey, like I said earlier, maybe this will all work out. I personally believe Solarte is good enough to be at least an average ML third baseman which ain’t bad. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. But they are rolling the dice big time here.

    Cletis Boyer.

  48. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    I’d be more worried if Cervy came out there with a mask.

  49. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    No Boyer can’t hit…that’s what they’d say.

  50. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    I, for one, am glad that the Yanks passed on Drew. It’s even more interesting that the whole league passed on him. Drew should fire his agent.

  51. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    I actually thought Peralta should have been one of their first acquisitions this past off season and said as much. I thought he could handle 3b until Arod comes back and could back up Jeter a bit at short.

  52. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 12:27 pm

    Peralta would have been a good signing, but the steroid suspension made him radioactive.

  53. bigdan22 April 8th, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    But what if Solarte turns out to be almost as good as Peralta? You’ve saved $50MM. Luck is key. Ask the Red Sox. Or maybe you shouldn’t. They always think they are smarter than everyone else. Lackey??

  54. mick April 8th, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    “based on the teams we will be facing in the next couple of days we thought Cabraal would be the best one to call up.”

  56. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    I’m fine with giving chances to Solarte, Johnson, Roberts, Anna, and Cervy,for the time being. The Ynks can make a move at hte ASB if conditions warrant it.

    Who doesn’t love an underdog story? Solarte is playing his heart out and playing very well at that, playing better than anybody on the team thus far. Sometimes you have to throw out the stat book and go with the flow. I can tell you that if this guy plays half as good as he is now he will be our best options at 3B and I for one will pull for him non stop as the underdog on the NYY.

    Rooting for Solarte is sure better than rooting for the overpaid underperforming players the last couple of years. You people need to lighten up!

    Go Solarte!

  65. 86w183 April 8th, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    Peralta is a nice player, but $ 14 M a year for a guy whose career OPS + is 101 is staggering.

    I think what Solarte is doing is terrific. No idea if it’s sustainable, but I hope so.

    No reason to amp up the pressure on the kid… leave him hitting 9th.

  68. NYY_Girl_Penny April 8th, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Can we please let Ichiro play as DH some times too ? Soriano would be a good Big Reuben Sierra off the bench from time to time too!

    Yes I love Ichiro, can you tell ? The only thing I love more than Ichiro, is Ichiro with a hot bat playing everyday!

    this is the best answer I have heard so far why to hit him 9th. Totally makes sense in that aspect! I can go for that ohh ohh ! Still I’d like to see him hit a little higher up :)

    Peralta is a nice player, but $ 14 M a year for a guy whose career OPS + is 101 is staggering.

    But he plays shortstop where that kind of offensive production is pretty darn good. He will be worth the $14 mil for probably 2 years if I had to guess

  73. Jerkface April 8th, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    When Peralta is good he is really good, and the fact he plays short makes that really good performance even more really better good.

  74. MTU April 8th, 2014 at 12:56 pm

    Solarte is a revelation.

    He has a good pedigree.

    In the best case he’s a Mora/Prado type.

    In the worst case he’s probably just a decent SU guy.

    I dunno, seems now that he doesn’t have an every day spot he has put it in 6th gear and playing like young ichiro. He has a hot bat right now the little we’ve seen him and that is more than most bats are doing right now.

    Bullpen has been great so far but a word of caution: we’re only seven games into the season. With no Mo, and now no DRob, pitchers are going to be thrust into pressure situations they haven’t faced before. Let’s not expect miracles (at least every day!).

    In addition to what everyone else said, Peralta also seems to have a knack for striking a timely big blow. It might just be luck, but it’s nice quality to have.

    let’s give a shout out to Ellsbury knocking the cover off the ball too! Go Ellsbury! Another fun player to watch, if he didn’t come from Boston you guys would already be in love with him.

    Haven’t watch much baseball lately..But i take your word that he has been hot…But thinking that he can do that consistently at his current age is a little bit of a stretch…But who knows?

  81. Ghostwriter April 8th, 2014 at 1:03 pm

    If Ichiro can play the role that Tim Raines played on the ’96 team, I’ll be more than satisfied.

    besides his name begins with YAN – YANGARVIS THE YANKEE !!!

    The question is, when will Girardi first call him “Yangy” ?

    Luis, he is batting almost 6 for 13 .. small sample size sure, but that’s a lot better than the .100′s and .200′s most the bats are right now. 5 players in our lineup today are hitting .200 or worse.. heh.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
