Update (4:49pm): Posada is day-to-day with a sprained left ring finger. X-rays were negative. Well that’s good news.

2:33pm: Jorge Posada left today’s game in the 7th inning after being hit by a foul tip off his left (glove) hand. Looked like his fingers bent back pretty far on the replay. We’ll update this post with info as it comes in.

    This type of injury seems to happen to Posada every year on his glove hand. It’s common with most catchers.
