Cervelli to begin rehab assignment on Thursday


Via Bryan Hoch, Frankie Cervelli is expected to begin and official rehab assignment with High-A Tampa tomorrow. Once that happens the team has 30 days to activate him from the disabled list, though that’s almost never a problem. Cervelli has been catching in Extended Spring Training this week, and usually these guys get about two weeks worth of at-bats before coming back, if that. The end of the Gus Molina era is rapidly approaching, which is a damn shame. Anyone named Gus is okay in my book.

    “Don’t cuss, call Gus, he’ll cuss for all of us”

    “get off the bus, Gus”

    Seriously, maybe he can clear waivers; he hasn’t miraclously changed into a guy who can hit after one or two games (he may get another start when Freddy pitches again).

    Cant wait for Girardi to bench Martin at the worst times to get ol’ Cervy in the lineup.

  4. M-Three says:

    Who cares? I am so sick of Cervelli. I don’t get why Girardi loves this guy so much. Cervelli is nothing but an automatic out when he plays. Also, I don’t like his hustle because I feel like Cervelli plays on the field like his spot on this roster is a lock and he won’t get demoted. I wish the Yankees would put him were he deserves to be as the back-up catcher in either Double-A or Triple-A and off the 40 man roster.

      But seriously, I know he ain’t nuthin to write home about offense-wise, but I enjoy watching him play. Luv the ‘tude.
