Yankees | Francisco Cervelli, Chris Stewart in tight race

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said there's no clear favorite for playing time between C's Francisco Cervelli and Chris Stewart, and the organization may not determine the split until the regular season begins. Girardi noted that each backstop did "a nice job with their staff" this spring. Cervelli and Stewart are out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: Mild prospect Austin Romine was also brought up earlier in the offseason as a candidate, but he was just sent to minor league camp and will be on call if they want to start his arbitration clock. He presents the most fantasy upside of this trio but is only a draft-day investment for AL-only pickers and an inseason free-agent target for two-catcher mixed leagues. Cervelli has a smidge more promise with the bat than Stewart, but neither should be on your dual-universe cheat sheet yet.
