Cashman: Cervelli may be done for season

LOS ANGELES -- Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli has been scheduled for an appointment with Dr. James Andrews and may not be able to play for the remainder of the season, general manager Brian Cashman said on Wednesday.

Cervelli is set to see Andrews on Monday because of discomfort in his right elbow, Cashman said. Cervelli has also been having issues with his right hand and saw a specialist, Dr. Thomas Graham, in Cleveland on Monday.

"Certainly, none of that information is positive," Cashman said. "Given the time frame left in the year, I can't rule out that he's going to get back, but we're running out of time and I can't get him to the starter's gate. It's looking more and more like it's going to be unrealistic to see Cervelli."

Cervelli has not played for the Yankees since April 26, when his right hand was fractured by a foul tip in a game at Yankee Stadium, requiring a plate to be inserted. In addition to his health issues, he also potentially faces discipline in Major League Baseball's ongoing Biogenesis investigation, with suspensions reportedly expected to be issued this week.
