Not really a Posada update

The Yankees are still not revealing any information regarding the condition of Jorge Posada.

But it has been learned that the results of his MRI have been sent to Drs. James Andrews and Tim Kremchek for review. Those are the same two doctors Posada consulted with earlier this season when he went on the disabled list for the first time.

This is standard procedure, to get multiple opinions. All signs point to Posada needing to have surgery that will end his season. Given his production at the plate (.268/.411/.364) it wouldn’t seem to make much sense to put 2009 at risk by trying to make him a DH/1B for the rest of the season.
