New York Yankees C Chris Stewart (groin) took some soft toss Monday, May 20, and he felt OK. Stewart is still available in an emergency with C Austin Romine starting against the Baltimore Orioles.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said C Chris Stewart (groin) is available in an emergency situation for a few days.
Fantasy Tip: With Francisco Cervelli (hand) also out, Austin Romine will handle the catching duties for at least the next couple of days. Add him if you need catching help in deep AL-only formats.

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte gave up 10 hits and seven runs, both season highs, in his loss to the Houston Astros Monday, April 29, in his first start with C Austin Romine behind the dish. "He hasn't been back there, and I felt like maybe I didn't get into the rhythm I wanted to," Pettitte said of Romine. It was the most hits Pettitte had allowed since Sept. 24, 2010, against the Boston Red Sox.

The New York Yankees recalled C Austin Romine and P Vidal Nuno from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre.
Fantasy Tip: The Nuno transaction doesn't bode well for Ivan Nova. This could mean he's headed to the DL after suffering elbow pain. He can be dropped in mixed formats if this is the case. Nuno had great numbers at Triple-A. He had a 1.54 ERA and 26 strikeouts to 2 walks in 23 1/3 innings over four starts. Scoop him up in AL-only leagues and watch him in mixed leagues.

New York Yankees C Austin Romine was pulled from his game at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre Friday, April 26. Yankees C Francisco Cervelli (hand) was struck on the hand by a pitch, and this could mean he may miss time.

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.

New York Yankees C Austin Romine said he lost 13 pounds in the offseason as he worked hard on his core strength to avoid back problems that he dealt with last season. Cs Francisco Cervelli and Chris Stewart will fight for the starting catcher job this spring, but Romine is hoping he can figure into the mix to avoid starting the season at Class AAA.
