Most anybody can get a glove, stand 40 or 50 from somebody else and play a decent game of catch. But the further apart you get, the better test it becomes of your arm strength.
So it was a good sign that when Jorge Posada went through his throwing program today, he worked his way out to 220 feet. “I threw a lot today,” he said. “It feels a little better everyday. Tony (Pena) loves it and it feels good coming out of my hand. There’s no pain and I feel stronger.”
Posada estimates he’s at 85 percent. He wouldn’t be close to 100 percent at this point in the spring even without having had surgery, so that is a good sign.
