Cervelli stepping in and stepping up

Francisco Cervelli has gotten a ticket to more playing time behind the plate thanks to the injuries to Mark Teixeira and Kelly Johnson. Brian McCann has been needed to fill the hole at first base, leaving Cervelli to catch. He has started five straight games — his longest stretch since he caught 10 straight in […] The post Cervelli stepping in and stepping up appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Francisco Cervelli getting chance to catch while Brian McCann plays first base

In baseball parlance, the day game after a night game is historically shorthand for a few things: unconventional lineups, unusual defensive alignments and, sometimes, a day off for a starting catcher in need of rest.

Yankees, Rangers delayed

NEW YORK -- Tonight's game between the Yankees and Rangers is being delayed by a sudden and violent thunderstorm that descended upon Yankee Stadium with the home team leading, 2-1, and batting in the top of the fifth inning. The Yankees got the go-ahead run on Brett Gardner's solo home run off Yu Darvish in the third inning. The game was stopped at 8:46 p.m. with one out and Francisco Cervelli on second after his second double of the night.

Game 88: Yankees (44-43) @ Indians (43-44)

CLEVELAND -- Another day, another injury. Today it's Carlos Beltran, who reported some swelling behind his right knee this morning and is out of the lineup tonight. That is why Brian McCann is the DH and Francisco Cervelli is behind the plate. Joe Girardi didn't seem to think Beltran's injury was particularly serious -- as of now, no tests are scheduled -- and did not rule out the possibility that Beltran might be available to pinch-hit tonight. Here's the lineup Girardi is sending out for the first of this four-game series against the Indians and their right-handed starter, Justin...

Postgame notes: “It came down to, we didn’t score runs”

This game was basically the same old story, but with a surprise twist ending. Francisco Cervelli’s 11th-inning throwing error was stunning and final. His throw sailed into the outfield and the game was suddenly over, ended just as the Yankees seemed to have the opportunity they desperately needed to get out of a bases-loaded jam.

Twins walk off Yankees on throw from Cervelli, 2-1

No team wanted to win. So the Yankees gave up. Minnesota and New York both had their chances today. David Phelps and Yohan Pino did their jobs as well as could reasonably be expected, combining for thirteen innings of work and allowing just two runs combined. Each pitcher gave up three hits and two walks. The Yankees scored first. Ichiro reached on a fielder's choice, stole second (he was out but the play wasn't challenged), moved up to third on a wild pitch from Pino, and then scored on a Francisco Cervelli single. Unfortunately for Cervelli, that's not the play that Yankee fans will...
