Jorge Posada hit in the cage yesterday, and he hopes to hit on the field today. He hasn’t started running yet, but he remains optimistic that he’ll be back in the lineup by the time the Yankees go to Toronto on Friday.
“I hope before that,” he said.
That seems overly optimistic, but Posada said he’s been encouraged by how strong his foot has felt since the protective boot came off this week.
“It felt better without the boot than with the boot to tell you the truth,” he said.
