He is a much better defensive catcher than Posada. With Johnson out, Posada needs to go to the DH spot, and Cervelli needs to start. The guy is clutch with RISP too

+1 Liked him the 1st game I saw him in. At first I thought he was some little dude with no power. Turns out that funky oversize helmet he wears just made him look smaller.

Definitely better than Posada on defense but then again, that's not saying much. When Molina used to come in and play, it really made me realize that.

My dad said the Yanks also have 2 excellent catchers down in the minors. Both are supposed to be top prospects, so he says.

Jesus Montero is the future Yankee catcher. Slow start this year, but he still has a good bat and glove.

I really like Cervelli also. Its weird, he didnt hit in the minors at all but he has done nothing but smack hits all over since he came up. I was at the games last night where he hit a triple... he has decent speed to run the bases. The 2 highly thought of prospects at catcher in the minors are Jesus Montero and Austin Romine. Montero is one of the top hitting prospects in all of baseball, his glove is still lagging behind although they say he is getting better. He is a big dude so he might be a little to big to stay at catcher in the bigs. Romine is an all around type of catcher... his bat isnt on Montero's level tho.

Montero is suppose to be legit but he is positioned as a catcher which he wont touch in the majors most likely. Like Pablo Sandoval dude can play 1st 3rd and Catcher. Montero can probably play OF 1B and Catcher or DH. With Gardner doing so good while many didnt think he would there is just no room for call ups.

It's funny seeing him at the plate with that helmet and the expressions he makes

He can play though

Hit in head with pitch in ST...concussion.


Time for Jorge to retire...can't stay healthy for a week.


Cervelli could be their catcher for the future. Montero has the bat, but not behind the plate skills.

They've played him at 1B in the minors, but he won't replace Tex, his future is at DH and backup catcher.

Time to see what the kid can do for an extended period of starting time... Posada's out for a month.
