Nada. Cervelli will take over duties. Moeller is my guess on the backup.

Nah. I think they're going to go with Francisco Cervelli for a time being. He's hitting well. There would be no reason to call up Montero

There's a better chance of Girardi suiting up and catching.

He'd probably catch better than him now. Montero's going to rake but he's not a catcher.

Yeah, but what about the fact that Marcus Thames, who they were using in the OF and at DH along with Juan Miranda, while Nick Johnson is out, also had to leave the game after he stepped on his own bat while running to first. Swisher comes back and goes to the OF, but that then leaves Miranda as the everyday DH if Thames is out. And neither of those can backup at C.

Cervelli will definitely do the majority of catching for the next month, but they need a backup for him, and its either going to be Chad Moeller or Jesus Montero. If they also end up needing a DH, then I think Montero will be the guy.

I'm not sure about Montero. He's not exactly lighting the world on fire in AAA. I can't see how a promotion would make sense there.

I agree with those who say Montero stays in the minors.

As stated here, many think Montero won't stick as catcher. But it seems that the Yankees are so in love with the idea of Montero's production in the catcher spot (once Posada retires) that they want to give him every chance to improve defensively.

If he doesn't totally suck as a catcher, then I wouldn't be shocked to see 3 catchers on the club next year. Montero/Posada/Cervelli split catching duties while Montero/Posada split DH duties. (which is why Nick Johnson got a one year deal to be DH) This isn't your normal problem carring three catchers, since two of them are real hitters. (If Cervelli still has options next year, they might use him shuttling between the majors and AAA)

Then they see if Montero sucks as a big league catcher with him only catching 40-50 games.
I just don't think they want Montero branded a DH when he is so young.

Obviously, this is pure speculation on my part based on being a die hard Yankee fan who tries to read between the lines when Cashman and others speak. (Note: Cashman is an expert at talking for a half hour and saying nothing of substance!)

If you are asking based on my post of the Yankees carrying three catchers, that was speculation for next year.

Clearly in the short term he will be on the DL (probably officially today) and someone will be called up. I agree with DaSH 1s when he said it would probably be Moeller. The debate here is that some think it could be Montero
