News: The Yankees placed Cervelli (hamstring) on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: The extent of Cervelli's injury is not certain, but his placement on the 60-day disabled list indicates he will need several weeks to recover and rehab.

News: Cervelli will land on the disabled list due to his strained right hamstring, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: After falling to the ground while attempting to run out his own groundball Sunday versus the Red Sox, Cervelli's recovery is slated to last at least a month. The Yankees will almost certainly call up a catcher in the near future to back up starter Brian McCann, who is dealing with a finger injury of his own.(RotoWire, )

News: Cervelli will be put on the disabled list before Tuesday's game against the Chicago Cubs, a move that will be retroactive to Monday. Impact: Cervelli, playing at first base because of injuries to others, left in the fourth inning of a 3-2 win over Boston on Sunday after getting hurt running to first. While originally called out, Cervelli was ruled safe after a video review - giving New York its third run of the game. Cervelli had an MRI that showed a grade 2 right hamstring strain.(STATS, 5:15pm)

News: Cervelli (hamstring) is likely headed for the DL after getting hurt Sunday night. Impact: Cervelli was sent for an MRI on Sunday night. Austin Romine, who has been up for a small stretch already this season, will likely get the call again from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.(RotoWire, )

News: Cervelli left Sunday night's game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the fourth inning due to a hamstring injury, according to manager Joe Girardi on the game broadcast. Impact: It did not look like a minor variety, as Cervelli grabbed at his leg while running to first and immediately fell to the ground in pain. In the near term, the Yankees will keep their fingers crossed Brian McCann doesn't get hurt, as that would mean Dean Anna would be tossed into an emergency catching situation. Carlos Beltran has taken over for Cervelli at first. If there's a silver lining here, Cervelli was safe at first on the play (after replay) and received an RBI.(RotoWire, )

News: Cervelli will start at first base Tuesday against the Orioles,'s Bryan Hoch reports. Impact: Cervelli has never played first base at the major league level, but with Mark Teixeira on the disabled list, and the Yankees not wanting to use Kelly Johnson or Dean Anna against the left-handed Wei-Yin Chen, Cervelli will get the nod there Tuesday. He will fill the seventh spot in the Yankees' batting order for Tuesday's game.(RotoWire, )

News: Cervelli took grounders at first base Sunday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Cervelli's role as the primary backup to Brian McCann may be set to expand if he can prove his effectiveness at first base from a defensive standpoint. With Mark Teixeira (hamstring) headed to the DL, there's definitely reps at first base up for grabs. Kelly Johnson will fill in at first for Sunday's game, but it's unclear if this will continue to be manager Joe Girardi's solution moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Cervelli is in the lineup Thursday against the Astros, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. Impact: Cervelli remains the backup option to the recently signed Brian McCann, but with McCann slated for a day of rest on Thursday, Cervelli will suit up to catch Ivan Nova.(RotoWire, )
