Posada MRI Reveals Strain

Posted by Mark McCray |

Jorge Posada may avoid a trip to the disabled list after an MRI taken Wednesday revealed a strained right shoulder.

Posada said prior to Wednesday’s contest against the Kansas City Royals that he expects to be sidelined for three or four days but does not think he will have to go on the DL.

“The good news is that it’s not something worse,” he said. “I’m really happy the MRI didn’t show more. It’s not bad.”

The Yankees already are without shortstop Derek Jeter, who is expected to miss the remainder of the Royals’ series with a strained left quadriceps suffered Monday against Tampa Bay.
