Francisco Cervelli C
Ramiro Pena 3B
Kevin Russo LF

Just a few minutes ago, Posada was on the field going through catching drills with Tony Pena. Posada first played catch with Pena, who gradually worked his way farther and farther from home plate, eventually getting to second base and beyond. Pena then pitched to Posada, who caught the ball in a catcher’s crouch, then popped to throw to another coach at second. When Posada was actually crouching behind the plate, Joe Girardi stood no more than four feet away to get a good look.

UPDATE, 3:41 p.m.: Brett Gardner is going to hit for the first time in two days.
