Cervelli Out 4 Weeks as a Door Opens For Montero

From Bryan Hoch:
Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli has a fracture in his left foot and will be out a minimum of four weeks, team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad told manager Joe Girardi on Monday.
With Cervelli now on crutches, Jesus Montero has to be the leading candidate to land the backup catcher spot.

Hoch later tweeted that "Girardi says the plan is for Posada to stay as DH" and that the Girardi has "no plans" to have Jorge catch at all this month.

Hoch also reports that Austin Romine is in the mix.
