Jorge Posada was available only in an emergency tonight after feeling discomfort in his throwing shoulder yesterday.

“He said it felt it kind of funny yesterday when he made the odd throw on the pitch out,” Joe Girardi said. “Just give him a day.”

Girardi said he considered using Posada to pinch hit for Francisco Cervelli in the eighth inning, but Posada’s shoulder combined the fact he was 1-for-10 with five career strikeouts against Rangers reliever Frank Francisco led Girardi to keep Posada on the bench. He’s hopeful a day of rest will do the trick.

“He said it doesn’t really hurt,” Girardi said. “He felt a little something. (It’s) a little cranky.”
