Yankees pregame/Posada update

Tweet [1]

Brian Heyman here at Yankee Stadium today for Chad. The big pregame news involved Jorge Posada. He ran the bases and did sprints in the outfield for the first time and pronounced his right foot good to go. He’s eligible to come off the DL tomorrow. It remains to be seen if he will. Posada said he prefers to stay with the team and not to make a rehab assignment. Joe Girardi said, “That’s something he might not have to do.” Girardi said he would see how Posada’s foot feels tomorrow from the running. Posada thought the hairline fracture would take three weeks to heal, but he said, “It feels good.”

David Robertson’s mild lower back strain also appears to be healed. “It feels good,” he said. “They rubbed it all out.” Robertson thinks he can relieve today, but Girardi said he would “probably stay away from him.”

 OK, here’s the Cleveland lineup:

1. Trevor Crowe CF

2. Mark Grudzielanek 2B

3. Austin Kearns LF

4. Travis Hafner DH

5. Jhonny Peralta 3B

6. Shelley Duncan RF

7. Matt LaPorta 1B

8. Lou Marson C

9. Jason Donald SS
