Yanks sign another catcher


Via Chad Jennings, the Yanks having inked 26-yr old catcher Chris Stewart and assigned him to Triple-A Scranton. Stewart has a little bit of big league experience, grabbing 45 at-bats with the ChiSox and Texas over the last two years. His numbers – majors or minors – aren’t exactly impressive, but the Yanks needed another catcher in the upper levels after Frankie Cervelli‘s injury.

    But Cervelli is not a “upper level” prospect. He was headed to AA before the injury.

    This makes me wonder about Posada’s injury.

      It’s a chain reaction: Cervelli would have started in Double-A while PJ Pilittere would have started in Triple-A. Because Cervelli got hurt, Pilittere is stuck back in Double-A, leaving a vacany in Triple-A.
