Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli appeared in the team’s clubhouse shortly after Sunday’s game with Toronto was rained out. He has been in the city for the past week, he said, doing exercises as his broken right hand heals.

Cervelli has a doctor’s appointment this week to see if he can get the pins removed from his hand. The injury occurred on April 26, when a foul ball collided with his hand. He is on the 60-day disabled list, but hopes to return to baseball activities by the middle of June.

“I don’t think I’m going to need that much [rehab time], because I’ve been working a lot,” Cervelli said. “It depends on my hand. I’ve got to get stronger again, my upper body. But the good thing is my brain never stops. I never rest. I’m ready, I can’t wait to come back.”

Cervelli was an unexpected asset for the Yankees at the plate during the season’s first month. He posted an .877 on-base plus slugging percentage. He does not think he will require a second spring training of minor-league at-bats, as Curtis Granderson did.
