According to the Yankee trainers, Jorge Posada started his throwing program down in Tampa today and had no problems. He had been doing some preliminary work in New York last week.
Posada had extensive shoulder surgery in July. Brian Cashman has maintained for months that Posada will be his catcher. But obviously the Yankees will be closely monitoring how Posada is doing with his rehab.
But the early indications are positive. Posada is a very proud guy and did not take well to the disabled list last season. He’ll get after it with the rehab.
