New York Yankees‘ catcher Francisco Cervelli will not be going to an arbitration hearing, as Jon Heyman reports.
The Bronx Bombers and Cervelli agreed on a one-year, $700,000 contract. Currently, the backstop figures to be third on the depth chart behind the plate, with Austin Romine and of course, free agent acquisition Brian McCann ahead of him.
Cervelli spent most of his time on the disabled list in 2013 after sustaining a fractured right hand from a foul tip. He played in only 17 games in 2013, and was also suspended 50-games as part of the Biogenesis scandal.
