Posada day-to-day with calf strainBy
(Update 11:09pm): Posada is day-to-day with a mild calf strain, which isn’t all that bad. He’s probably not going to be available to catch until Friday at the earliest, in which case the Yankees would need to call up an extra catcher. Chad Moeller, come on down!
9:04pm: Posada left the game with tightness in his right calf, and is at the hospital getting an MRI. Not good.
8:50pm: Starting catcher Jorge Posada was lifted from tonight’s game in the 5th inning for an unknown reason. Obviously, he was replaced behind the plate by Frankie Cervelli. We’ll update this post with more info as it comes in, though it’s worth noting that Posada recently missed a few games with a sore knee after getting hit by a pitch last week.
