Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli left Sunday night’s game against the Red Sox with a leg injury, reports Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York. Cervelli had been attempting to beat out a ground ball double play in the fourth inning and was ruled out on a controversial call that went to instant replay. The call was overturned and manager John Farrell was ejected.
With Mark Teixeira out, the Yankees had Cervelli start tonight at first base. Brian McCann was the only non-emergency catcher available for Sunday night. When Cervelli exited, Carlos Beltran moved from right field to first base — playing first base for the first time in his professional career — and Ichiro Suzuki entered the game in right field.
