2011 csd Preview – Francisco Cervelli
I saw Cervelli last season when the Yankees were in Chicago. He is a talented young catcher that is sitting right now on the depth chart behind Russell Martin and Jorge Posada. The Yankees might have the most depth at catcher right now. With Posada aging Cervelli was scheduled to be the backup to Martin coming into the season. Of course things change quickly, and a foot injury has put Cervelli behind this spring.
I took this picture last August as Cervelli was jogging back to his position behind the plate after a mound visit. If you have read my blogs you will know that I love to capture catchers in various positions. They are the only player in the field that you cannot see their face. That just makes a picture of them in the field when you can that much cooler.
