So best I can do is go out there and show them I can catch." With four games left, Romine will continue to try to perform at the highest level. "I'm just playing. I'm playing to make this team, but I'm also playing for the teams out there," Romine said. "But I want nothing more than to make it on this team. That's my goal."

      Yankees C Austin Romine loses 15 pounds, shoots for No. 2 role

      Yankees catcher Austin Romine lost 15 pounds this winter while training with his brother, Tigers shortstop Andrew Romine, as part of his plan to put himself in position to be the Yankees' backup catcher in 2015, the New York Daily News reports. "I want it," Austin Romine said. "I want to go out there and prove to them that I want it. That's why I'm here early and I just want to hit the ground running and go after it and bust my (butt) to make the team." The Yankees will hold a position battle for the right to serve as Brian McCann's backup after Francisco Cervelli was traded this offseason. Romine showed up to camp 10 days early to prove he's ready for the role after his offseason training program. "We focused a lot on lower body, which as a catcher is perfect," Romine said. "(Andrew) sped me up a little bit. We worked on some speed. Being a catcher, you don't want to be labeled as a slow guy. We worked on that. He blew me out of the water on everything because he's fast as heck. We worked hard. That's where the 15 pounds came off and I feel really good." Romine was just 3 for 13 in seven appearances with the Yankees in 2014. He hit .242/.300/.365 with six home runs and 33 RBI in 285 at-bats with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
