New York Yankees: Backup Plans If Their Catcher Options Flop

Former Yankee Russell Martin will be in another uniform next season

For almost 20 years, catcher has been a position of strength in the New York Yankees organization. From Joe Girardi to Jorge Posada to Russell Martin, the Bronx Bombers have had an above average offensive catcher spanning across three separate decades. 

However, with the retirement of Jorge Posada last offseason and the departure of Russell Martin, the Yankees are short at the position with no proven major league regulars on the roster. 

Their current crop of catching candidates includes career backup Chris Stewart, the offensively challenged Francisco Cervelli and highly touted but inexperienced prospect Austin Romine.
