Scott Sizemore & Francisco Cervelli News

I know I am a little late to this party but Scott Sizemore has been designated for assignment to make room for Carlos Beltran on the active roster. Beltran was activated today and went 0-3 with two strikeouts in the game. Sizemore will likely clear waivers but it is unclear whether he will accept a minor league assignment again after losing his opt out clause in his contract the first time he was called up. Sizemore is not cut from the team and this is merely a procedural move. Sizemore is still on the 40 man roster and will be in Scranton tomorrow night.

Francisco Cervelli will start a minor league rehab assignment tonight with the Tampa Yankees. Cervelli is still a little under two weeks away from being eligible to come off the 60 day DL but this is still encouraging news. Expect Cervelli to use most if not all of his 30 day clock.
