Francisco Cervelli was born March 6, 1986 and is a Major League Baseball catcher for the New York Yankees. He was an international signee by the Yankees in 2003 and played in the 2009 World Baseball Classic for the Italian team. He is Venezuelan and of Italian descent.

Cervelli started the 2010 season on the Yankees' 25-man roster to serve as the backup catcher to Jorge Posada, and served as the Yankees' starting catcher while Posada recovered from a foot injury. On March 6, 2010, Cervelli was hit in the head by a pitch. He was removed from the game with a concussion. Shortly after, citing another concussion Cervelli suffered while playing winter ball, the Yankees suggested he begin wearing the Rawlings S-100 protective helmet, a bulkier model made to withstand 100 mph fastballs. This briefly earned him the nickname "Gazoo," a reference to a character in the 1960s 'The Flintstones' TV cartoon.

In 2011, Cervelli entered spring training as the backup to Russell Martin. Cervelli broke his foot in early March, and missed the beginning of the 2011 season. On April 29th, 2011, the New York Yankees activated Cervelli from the DL, replacing Gustavo Molina who was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. On May 8, Cervelli hit his first home run of the season, his first career grand slam in a series tiebreaker on the road against Texas, bringing in Nick Swisher, Jorge Posada, and Brett Gardner.

Cervelli was optioned to Triple-A to begin the 2012 season, with Chris Stewart winning the job as Martin's backup. Cervelli admitted that he moped following the demotion, until his parents visited him during the season and refocused him on improving his game. The Yankees recalled Cervelli to the majors when rosters expanded on September 1.

With Martin having signed with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Cervelli became the starting catcher for the Yankees in 2013.
