Description: Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli has started eight straight games and hit safely in all of them.
Insight: Cervelli went 1-for-4 with his first homer of the season Sunday. He's been seeing a lot of time because Brian McCann has had to play first base with Mark Teixeira out. He'll likely move back to the bench when Teixeira returns Tuesday or Wednesday, though he could be a trade target for catcher-needy teams.
 
6/17/2014 7:23:00 PM
Description: New York catcher Francisco Cervelli has been activated from the 60-day DL.
Insight: A strained hamstring has kept Cervelli out since April 13th. The Yankees demoted John Ryan Murphy (.286, 1 HR, 8 RBI) to Triple-A Scranton to make room for Cervelli on the active roster. As Brian McCann's backup behind the plate, Cervelli (.188, 0 HR, 1 RBI) shouldn't expect to see much playing time.
 
6/2/2014 2:18:00 PM
Description: Yankees C/1B Francisco Cervelli (hamstring strain) played a few innings in an extended spring training game, according to Bryan Hock of mlb.com.
Insight: Cervelli was placed on the 60-day DL in April and could come back in mid-June. With Brian McCann as the Yankees' starter, Cervelli has little fantasy value even when he's 100 percent healthy.
 
4/15/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Yankees C/1B Francisco Cervelli has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain.
Insight: Cervelli has already been placed on the 60-day DL. Austin Romine is expected to serve as Brian McCann's backup at catcher until Cervelli (.188, 0 HR, 1 RBI) is ready to return.
 
4/13/2014 11:09:00 PM
Description: Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's game and had to exit.
Insight: Cervelli started at first base with Mark Teixeira on the DL and both Derek Jeter (quad) and Brian Roberts (back) not available. His injury forced Carlos Beltran to make his first appearance at first base.
 
7/4/2013 5:51:00 PM
Description: New York catcher Francisco Cervelli has a stress reaction in his right elbow and has been shut down indefinitely, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: Cervelli has been out since late April due to a fractured right hand. He's likely to be out at least until August and could miss the rest of the season.
 
4/27/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: New York catcher Francisco Cervelli (fractured hand) will undergo surgery on Saturday and early estimates are for him to be sidelined for at least six weeks, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News
Insight: The Yankees will most likely promote Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre where he was batting .333 with a homer and four RBI in 14 games.

Description: New York catcher Francisco Cervelli has been diagnosed with a fractured hand. SOURCE: YES Network
Insight: When Cervelli goes on the disabled list, Chris Stewart will be the only active catcher on New York's roster. The Yankees will likely be forced to call up a catcher from Triple-A to account for Cervelli's absence.
 
4/26/2013 7:50:00 PM
Description: Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli injured his right hand Friday against the Blue Jays. SOURCE: David Lennon, Newsday
Insight: The injury occurred after Cervelli was hit by a foul tip in the first at bat of the game. Chris Stewart will handle the catching duties for the rest of the evening.
 
3/4/2011 3:34:00 PM
Description: Francisco Cervelli has a fractured foot and will miss at least four weeks of action. SOURCE: STAR LEDGER
Insight: This is big fantasy news because it opens the door for Jesus Montero to possibly start the season with the Yankees. Cervelli likely won't be ready for the first two weeks of the regular season.
 
3/4/2011 9:41:00 AM
Description: The Yankees are bracing for bad news on C Francisco Cervelli's injured left foot, which could be broken. 'Usually when they can't tell you there is nothing wrong, there is usually something wrong,' GM Brian Cashman said. 'When it takes this long, it usually means there is something wrong.' SOURCE: New York Post
Insight: THis news opens the door for Jesus Montero to open the season with the Yankees, which would absolutely increase his value in 2011.
 
3/3/2011 10:54:00 AM
Description: Yankees C Francisco Cervelli left Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Astros at Steinbrenner Field with a bruised left foot. Cervelli fouled a ball off the arch in the second inning, stayed in the game to run after walking, and caught the top of the third before being removed. SOURCE: New York Post
Insight: This injury could allow Jesus Montero to pass Cervelli on the catching depth chart, giving him a better chance to stick with the Yankees out of Spring Training. If you are interested in Montero, continue to monitor this situation right up until your draft.
 
2/23/2011 1:17:00 PM
Description: The Yankees are impressed with the improvements C Francisco Cervelli made in the off-season. SOURCE: New York Post
Insight: A healthy Russell Martin and an improved Cervelli would help the Yankees deal away one fo their catching prospects to upgrade their starting rotation. If Cervelli sticks with the Yankees he would have value in AL-only leagues.
