Jorge Posada woke up with a stiff neck and can’t play today. P.J. Pilittere will get the start.
Mitch Abeita is here from the minor league complex, but the Yankees might have an extra catcher drive over just in case.
Doesn’t sound like a serious issue for Posada. Sounds like he just slept on it wrong.
UPDATE, 12:29 p.m.: Brandon Laird has also been scratched. Sore elbow.
