Posada leaves game with soreness in right foot


Update (6:26pm): For what it’s worth, Posada said “soreness” was the wrong word, and that he was just fatigued. That was his first attempt at catching nine innings in a month, so that’s understandable.

5:06pm: Via Marc Carig, Jorge Posada left today’s game in the 9th inning with soreness in his right foot, though it’s on a different part of the foot than the hairline fracture that landed him on a disabled list in the first place. Today was Posada’s first time behind the plate since May 16th, so it’s a shame he couldn’t get through a full nine innings. I’m sure the Yankees will be extra careful with him, and tomorrow’s off day will give him a little bonus rest.

    Some good news (Ace) followed with some bad news (this news). Hopefully he’s alright and this is nothing serious.

    I hope Posada is alright, looks like he was getting hot with the 2 grandslams. Posada has to be frustrated.

    Posada stated on the post game that his entire foot was sore and attributes it to being tired while catching his first game in a while. Let’s see how he feels come Tuesday.

    simple idea…..put him back in the DH spot

      I’m a bit confused. How does this relate to anything?

        meant to go with my above post, just a favorite moment i snapped last season during 2009 ALCS game 2

    heh. it’s just getting funny. I mean I know it’s probably not a big deal but I feel like people have been getting hurt erry day all season

      i like the attitude of the players for the most part, arod, posada, gardner are treating their nicks and cuts well and not trying to push it so early in the season. of course being 40-23 and in first place helps just a little bit too. the lack of a bench bat is a little glaring though– if NJ isn’t at least close to being healthy by ASB they should look into picking up somebody, i’m not sure if i’d want to see jesus yet, even in september

    There you go Jorge, it was a long, wet 3.5 hours of baseball today. It should be expected you’re a little fatigue after catching your first game for a while.

    If Jake Fox lasts until the Yankees’ spot, might as well grab him now…
