Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Sunday that Francisco Cervelli will get an MRI exam on his injured hamstring.

Girardi noted that he doesn't expect Cervelli to be day-to-day, so a trip to the disabled list could be in the cards. With the team's mounting injury woes, they don't have the luxury of carrying injured players since they need healthy bodies.

Francisco Cervelli was removed from Sunday's game against the Red Sox in the fourth inning after suffering an apparent hamstring injury.

Francisco Cervelli will make his first career start at first base Tuesday against the Orioles.

Cervelli has never started at the position, even in the minors, but he could play a couple of games there while Mark Teixeira (hamstring) is on the disabled list. Kelly Johnson should still get most of the playing time, but he's sitting Tuesday with lefty Wei-Yin Chen on the hill for Baltimore.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Francisco Cervelli is drawing "lots of trade interest."

He lists the White Sox among the clubs that have been monitoring Cervelli this spring. George A. King III of the New York Post reported last month that the Yankees could trade a catcher in spring training and he also heard at the time that Chicago could be interest. If Cervelli is traded, Austin Romine would likely serve as Brian McCann's backup.

George A. King III of the New York Post writes that the Yankees could deal a catcher this spring to address other needs.

The Yankees could deal Francisco Cervelli, who is out of options, Austin Romine, or J.R. Murphy. King hears that the White Sox are looking for some help behind the plate and speculates that a catcher could be part of a possible package for someone like Gordon Beckham or Jeff Keppinger.

Yankees avoided arbitration with C Francisco Cervelli by agreeing to a one-year, $700,000 contract.

The Yankees plan to tender a contract this winter to arbitration-eligible catcher Francisco Cervelli.

Cervelli was limited to 17 games in 2013 due to finger and elbow injuries, but the Yankees feel he'll have better luck next season. The 27-year-old is eligible for salary arbitration for the first time in his career and shouldn't wind up costing that much.
