TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Francisco Cervelli is choosing safety over style.
Cervelli talked about the change before Thursday night's game against the Atlanta Braves was canceled because of rain.
Like Wright last summer, Cervelli was hit in the helmet by a 94 mph pitch that gave him a concussion — Cervelli's second since November. Cervelli was injured Saturday and was cleared by a neurologist Monday. He is scheduled to play his first game Friday, when the Yankees travel to Viera to face the Washington Nationals.
