Cervelli to DL, McCann X-rays negative

A few updates to pass along this afternoon from the Yankees:

· Precautionary x-rays taken last night on C Brian McCann’s right hand were negative.

· An MRI given last night to C Francisco Cervelli revealed a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. He will be placed on the disabled list prior to Tuesday’s game with the Cubs (retroactive to today).

· Following Sunday’s game, RHP Shane Greene was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.


Looks like John Ryan might come up instead of Romine and Cranzler is also on his way?


I think it will be JR Murphy who gets the call.

I’m sure Romine is on his way up. They NEED Sizemore up also. I expect that other “always injured” first baseman Tex will come back and within two weeks will also be out again. Amazing what stretching does for the hamstrings and ligaments etc…..


friggin Cervelli. Every year he has some kind of injury. You’d think the guy was 40 and he’s one of the younger guys on the team. Shouldn’t have signed him as backup. Wonder what steroids have done to his body.


Cervelli is not the only one. This is and has been an injury prone team. Could it be that better coaching and suppport in physical training overall has been lacking here?
