Back soreness may keep Romine out a day
TAMPA, Fla. -- Yankees catcher Austin Romine experienced back soreness after going through workouts on Thursday and may miss a day, manager Joe Girardi said.

Romine, 23, is one of eight catchers the Yankees have in camp and just one of three on the club's 40-man roster.

Girardi has said that he envisions Francisco Cervelli as the front-runner to serve as Russell Martin's backup, likely pegging Romine to begin the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
