FRANCISCO CERVELLI RUMORS

Liriano Says Cervelli Plays Similar to Russell Martin; Kang and McCutchen Updates

Francisco Liriano was scheduled to go five innings or 80 pitches today, whichever came first. He threw 81 pitches, but did it in four innings.

Austin Romine, who was battling with Cervelli and John Ryan Murphy for the roster spot, will be sent down to the minors.

Hitting in the clutch: Frankie Cervelli has his first 2-HR game, and it might mean his ticket out of Yankee Hell

I like Francisco Cervelli. Always have. Twice, he's been rushed to hospitals in ambulances, still wearing his NY jersey. He's a homegrown Yank, a fighter - albeit a snake-bitten one - who somehow managed to stay positive during some of the most depressing scenarios any player could imagine.
