The Yankees need a catcher. Jose Molina strained his left hamstring in the fourth inning, which is why he had to leave the game in the eighth.
“He sucked it up for us,” manager Joe Girardi said.
It’s uncertain what the corresponding move will be to create a roster spot, but the Yankees will be adding a catcher tomorrow. It will likely be veteran Chad Moeller.
Jorge Posada (right shoulder) said he is not ready to catch tomorrow. He was instructed not to throw tonight in the inning he caught and Boston stole two bases. Imagine what Tampa Bay would do tomorrow.
