Here’s the latest on Jorge Posada:
He played in an extended spring training game in Tampa against the Blue Jays. He was 1 for 2 with two walks and a GIDP. He caught but did not throw to the bases during the game.
He went through his throwing program before the game. He threw from 90, 120 and 150 feet and then to the bases. Said one observer, “He had a lot of zip on the ball.”
Posada will DH in a game today. On Saturday, he will be cleared to throw to the bases in an extended spring game in St. Petersburg against the Rays. The Rays will be told to run so Posada can test his arm.
Look for him in pinstripes next week, Thursday or Friday.
