Francisco Cervelli Placed On 60-Day Disabled List

Cervelli [1]

Francisco Cervelli injured his hamstring Sunday night and the Yankees have placed the backup catcher on the 60-day disabled list rather than the usual 15-day disabled list.

Cervelli is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, so he might be ready before 60 days are up, but the move was likely made mostly because players on the 60-day DL don’t count against the 40-man roster and the Yankees’ numerous injuries have put them in a bit of a roster crunch.
