MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - New York Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli will likely need another month before he's back with the team.
Manager Joe Girardi said Thursday that an MRI test on Cervelli revealed a stress reaction in his right elbow. He has been shut down from activity for two weeks. Girardi said the injury arose in the last few days and acknowledged the 27-year-old probably won't return to the Yankees until August. A stress reaction is the precursor to a stress fracture.
Cervelli has been doing rehabilitation work for a broken right hand that occurred in late April. He played in 16 games at the start of the season but has been out since then. Cervelli was making progress, throwing regularly and taking batting practice, until getting hurt this week.
