It's been quite a while since catcher was a question mark for the Yankees. Jorge Posada provided an above-average backstop for 14 seasons, and Russell Martin somewhat seamlessly stepped into that role the past two years. Now, with Martin in Pittsburgh, the Yankees have a competition between Chris Stewart (above) and Francisco Cervelli. Neither will raise concerns defensively, but at the same time neither will instill much fear in opposing pitchers. The journeyman Stewart, 31, is a career .217 hitter with 4 HR and 26 RBIs in 351 at-bats with five clubs. In parts of five seasons with the Yankees, the 27-year-old Cervelli has hit .271 with 5 HR and 71 RBIs in 490 at-bats.
