Yankees recalled C Austin Romine from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Romine is expected to provide the Yankees with extra catching depth while Francisco Cervelli shares time at first base with Kelly Johnson, in the wake of Mark Teixeira's injury. No word yet on the corresponding move, but Teixeira to the disabled list is the most likely outcome.
Apr 5 - 10:58 AM

Yankees optioned C Austin Romine to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

This means that Francisco Cervelli has officially claimed the backup catcher job. There have been rumors that the Yankees could trade from their catcher depth in order to upgrade elsewhere, but Romine remains in the fold for now.
Mar 26 - 9:20 AM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Saturday that Austin Romine (concussion) may not return this season.

Romine has been sidelined since September 10 due to concussion symptoms. Chris Stewart will continue to handle the bulk of the work behind the dish for the remainder of the season.

Austin Romine (concussion) was a late scratch from the Yankees' lineup Tuesday.

Romine passed an ImPACT test over the weekend, but he's still feeling some post-concussion symptoms. "He went through his drills and said he felt good," manager Joe Girardi said. "I was under the assumption he was ready to go, but he's not quite ready to go. I should have asked."

Austin Romine (concussion) passed an ImPACT test.

Good news. Romine has already ridden an exercise bike and hit in the cage and will also attempt to take limited batting practice Friday. Depending upon how he feels, a return this weekend could be a possibility.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 04:26:00 PM

Austin Romine (concussion) said Thursday that he feels "much better" than he did two days ago.

Romine was diagnosed with a concussion after he was hit in the face with a foul tip on Tuesday night. While there has been some improvement, he is still having some issues and will need to pass concussion tests before being cleared to return to the lineup. Chris Stewart and J.R. Murphy will share catching duties for now.

Austin Romine has been diagnosed with a "slight" concussion.

Romine was injured when he took a foul ball off the mask Tuesday. "He's not going to be on the field today for pregame," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday. "I will not use him [Wednesday]. We'll see where he's at in a couple of days."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after Tuesday's game that Austin Romine is likely dealing with a concussion.

The catcher suffered the concussion during the win over the Orioles. Concussions are always difficult to gauge, but getting one at this point in the year certainly has the potential to be a season-ender.

Austin Romine went 1-for-3 in New York's 8-4 loss to the Angels on Thursday.

Romine had some success at the end of July, progress that was attributed publicly to mechanical work alongside hitting coach Kevin Long. Unfortunately, the young catcher hasn't sustained the headway into August, going 5-for-19 (.263) with one homer and one RBI. He doesn't play or hit enough to have relevance outside of deeper AL-only formats.
Thu, Aug 15, 2013 06:46:00 PM

Austin Romine went 3-for-4 with a run scored against the Rangers on Thursday.

The three hits marked a career-high. Romine has swung the bat a little bit better over the past couple of weeks, so he could begin to steal playing time away from Chris Stewart moving forward. We don't see much fantasy value outside of AL-only formats, though.

Austin Romine (neck) went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in his return to action Tuesday.

Romine hadn't played since July 14 due to a stiff neck. He should be good to go moving forward.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 09:02:00 AM

Austin Romine has been unavailable to play lately due to a stiff neck.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi planned to start Romine Sunday, but he wasn't feeling well enough. The hope is that he'll be ready to catch on Tuesday.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 10:16:00 PM

Austin Romine went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Royals.

A big day for Romine, who entered Thursday's action with just two hits over his last 24 at-bats. The RBI was his first since way back on May 17. Chris Stewart should continue to get most of the reps behind the plate until Francisco Cervelli (hand) is finally ready to go.
