Jeter/Posada Headed For DL?

Posted by Mark McCray |

Great!!! First Jeter now Posada...what happend to staying healthy!? That must have just been a Spring Training thing, eh?!?

Peter Abraham of the LoHud Yankees Blog:

Alberto Gonzalez was pulled out of tonight’s game for Scranton, which could mean he’s headed here to replace Derek Jeter on the roster.

Jorge Posada is scheduled for an MRI tomorrow. He said it would be in Kansas City. The Yankees can have their own doctors read the results then decide what to do. He has never been on the DL in his career but seemed almost resigned to it when reporters spoke to him.

“I’m not helping the team out, it’s as simple as that. I’ve got to be 100 percent to be back there and right now I’m not,” he said. “I’m hoping for the best but I don’t know. A catcher is like a pitcher, you need your arm. If you’re an outfielder or a shortstop you can play through it but a catcher throws as much as a pitcher.”
