Yankees place Cervelli on DL, call up Murphy & Sizemore

Francisco+Cervelli

The Yankees have made a roster move, and it unfortunately involves us not seeing Francisco Cervelli for a long time.

Cervelli was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a Grade 2 hamstring strain. The Yankees called up John Ryan Murphy in his place.

There was a lot of speculation as to who would be the second call-up. Brian Cashman himself said Russ Canzler would most likely get the call up but it seemed the Yankees changed their minds when they purchased the Major League contract of Scott Sizemore and called him up to the big leagues. Both Murphy and Sizemore are expected to be with the Yankees during tomorrow’s double header.

    wow that really sucks about Cervelli but it's great that they got John Ryan and Scott Sizemore I hope that Cervelli comes back soon

  2. Unfortunately, Cervelli won't be around any time soon as the Yanks have placed him on the 60man DL.

    Considering Murphy's woes with the bat I'm a bit surprised.

    • Mike Sommer says:

      Based on some recent comments made by Cashman, if you read between the lines, Murphy is ahead of Romine right now.
