Late Mailbag Question…

March 19, 2008

Somehow, this one got cut off from the last post.

Mike, what happens to the catching situation in Trenton now that Cervelli’s out for a while?

All indications point towards P.J. Pilittere returning for a second season, with Jason Brown possibly backing him up.  The thought originally was that Pilittere would be heading to Scranton for 2008, but Cervelli’s injury seems to have created more of a need for his return to Waterfront Park.

I think the real question is what happens when Cervelli returns.  Do the Yankees get rid of Chad Moeller so that Jason Brown has a spot?  Does Pilittere stay in Trenton?  Does Joe Muich or Ben Blumenthal or any of the other organizational catchers factor into this?
