“I think he’s more than capable of playing every day, every playoff game behind home plate. That’s not really a question in my mind … I have no problem doing that,” the manager said.
If Cervelli can’t go what the Yankees may end up doing is carrying Martin along with Jorge Posada and Jesus Montero on the playoff roster while leaving Austin Romine home. That way Martin could be the catcher and Posada and Montero will DH with whoever the third player is sitting on the bench in case of an emergency.
The rules do allow a roster change in the event of an injury so there would be no real harm in leaving Romine off the roster.
