Just spoke to Brian Cashman. Here is what he said about Mariano’s surgery:

“I spoke to Dr. (David) Altchek and there were no surprises. Everything was as they thought it would be. He can start throwing again in three months, which is not atypical for him anyway. So that was good news.”

Jorge Posada came by the Stadium today because he wanted to do over and take a look at the new Stadium. He is not going to start throwing until December but told Cashman that his shoulder is coming along fine.

No word yet on 40-man roster moves or changes to the coaching staff. “All things we need to talk about,” he said.
