Yankees were going to have a decision to make this weekend, catcher Francisco Cervelli is eligible to be activated from the 60-day DL today, but instead he will be staying with the Trenton Thunder at least through the weekend. It was reported that Cervelli got on the bus with rest of Thunder team, which was heading to New Britain for a weekend series.

Looks like for least the end of the west coast road trip John Ryan Murphy will stay with the team. Murphy came off a decent 2-for-4 night after being in a bit of a slump. Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman will make the final decision after the Yankees return home , but early reports say that Murphy could be optioned instead of trying to carry all three catchers. Cervelli could be activated as late as Tuesday.
