The New York Yankees had been getting some calls on backup catcher Francisco Cervelli, but it looks like at least one team has crossed their names off the list as far as interest goes.

Bryan Hoch of has reported that the Chicago White Sox, who were once linked as to having interest in Cervelli, are now not interested in obtaining the backup catcher.

Cervelli had drawn trade interest back in spring training with their plethora of catching depth with John Ryan Murphy and Austin Romine, but the Yankees decided to hang onto him, serving as the primary catching backup as well as first base depth.

Cervelli landed on the disabled list in mid-April with a leg injury that kept him out almost two months and since, has returned to the Yankees and at times, has given them a spark behind the plate and at the plate.

In 25 games, Cervelli is hitting .297 with one home run and six RBI for the Yankees this season and it's still possible that he could be traded; the Colorado Rockies and Milwaukee Brewers were all once tied to Cervelli as far as trade interest, but for the time being, the White Sox will not be making a deal with the Yankees for Cervelli.
