I read something that the Yankees are trying to get under $189 million payroll to avoid the luxury tax, so I wouldn't expect any big money moves with this team until A-Rod goes or Jeter retires.
Cervelli was never expected to start at any point though, he's a nice guy to have as a backup that works well with pitchers and is an ok hitter, think about it, Stewart was no better of an option than Cervelli and he got 1 at bat after being called up in September

Word on the street was Cervelli did something to piss off somebody in the organization
