Impact: Despite this news, it's still unclear when Cervelli will be able to return to the lineup. Manager Joe Girardi is playing it safe to ensure the cluster migraines don't reoccur, so they'll hold him out for a little bit longer. John Ryan Murphy will continue to serve as the backup catcher in the meantime.(RotoWire, )
