NEW YORK -- Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday that catcher Chris Stewart would not be put on the 15-day disabled list and that the result of an MRI indicated Stewart did not seriously injure his left groin Thursday night, as the club had feared. The club had been concerned that the catcher might have required a DL assignment, too.

Rookie Austin Romine was in the starting lineup Friday and was expected to play for a few days while Stewart allowed his groin "to quiet down." However, Cashman said Stewart could play if Romine became unavailable.

Rookie Alberto Gonzalez, who has played shortstop and third base and pitched, remains the emergency catcher.
