Shawn Kelley & Francisco Cervelli Injury Updates

Relief pitcher Shawn Kelley pitched Saturday night in Trenton with the Thunder in his first action since a back injury landed him on the disabled list. Kelley came through everything fine with no pain, stiffness, etc. and looks primed to join the big league club tomorrow in the finale against the Kansas City Royals. Great news for a Yankees bullpen that needs a fresh arm, a guy that can pitch at the back end of the bullpen, and a guy who is not Matt Daley. 

Francisco Cervelli has been out since April with a hamstring injury and has been working down in Tampa on his minor league rehab assignment. Cervelli's rehab has been ramped up and he has been moved to Scranton in Triple-A to conintue rehabbing.  I think Cervelli is still about a week away from being eligible to be activated and the Yankees have quite the decision on their hands. John Ryan Murphy has played well and Cervelli is out of options so something is going to have to give here.
