Cervelli to back up Molina

Francisco Cervelli has been recalled from the Trenton Thunder to replace Jorge Posada on the 25-man roster. Posada was put on the 15-day DL earlier today with a strained hamstring. No 40-man roster move had to be made since Cervelli is already included on the list.

The Thunder catcher is best known for being run over by the Tampa Bay Rays' Elliot Johnson in a spring training game last year. The collision resulted in a broken wrist for Cervelli and bad blood between the two teams.

Cervelli was hitting just .190 with 2 HR and 7 RBI in 16 games for Trenton this season. He hit .315 in 21 games for Trenton last season. Cervelli played for Team Italy in this past March's World Baseball Classic.
