Yankees | Francisco Cervelli to have surgery

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli (hand) will have surgery Saturday, April 27, to repair his broken right hand. He is expected to be sidelined at least six weeks after the procedure.

Fantasy Tip: With Cervelli on the shelf, Chris Stewart is expected to see a majority of the starts, with prospect Austin Romine also in the mix for playing time. Both should only be considered a low-end No. 2 option in AL-only leagues which require two starting catchers.
