Pirates C Cervelli hopes new workouts lead to healthy year

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) Francisco Cervelli has one primary personal goal this season - stay healthy.

The Pittsburgh Pirates catcher was limited to 81 games last year. A concussion landed him on the disabled list twice in June and he was also sidelined by left wrist inflammation before his season ended Aug. 26 because of a strained left quadriceps.

The 32-year-old Cervelli changed his workout routine in the offseason, concentrating more on flexibility than strength. He also started his workouts in October, a month earlier than normal, because he sat out the final month of the season.
