When Jorge Posada knew he was going to miss time, he vowed he’d return a week, or even two weeks, ahead of schedule. He might get a chance to live up to his word, as Bryan Hoch is reporting Posada’s foot has healed quickly and will be re-evaluated today.
“He is feeling better, and we're going to try to come up with a course of action,” Joe Girardi said. “I can't tell you exactly when he will start baseball activities, but I want to see him and how he's moving around.”
If Francisco Cervelli catches tonight, it will be the 10th time in the last 11 days he’s squatted behind home plate. Cervelli’s average has dipped, but not by much. He’s still hitting .330/.410/.418 — not bad for the supposed backup catcher — who also happens to be leading the current poll on the left column.
Last Thursday’s call-up, Chad Moeller, has yet to see any action with the Yankees.
