Yankees Plan To Tender Contract To Francisco Cervelli

The Yankees plan to tender a contract to the arbitration-eligible Francisco Cervelli, General Manager Brian Cashman tells Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger (on Twitter).  The GM added that the catcher is healthy.

Cervelli, 27, missed the bulk of 2013 for the Yankees.  After breaking his hand on a foul tip in late April, he was later hit with a 50-game suspension in August for ties to the Biogenesis clinic.  Over parts of six years in the Bronx, Cervelli owns a .271/.343/.367 slash line.  Matt Swartz estimates that Cervelli will receive $1MM in arbitration.
