Posada injured

Joe Girardi revealed after the game that Jorge Posada took a foul tip Tuesday night and was unavailable for this game because of concussion symptoms. He left during the game to be examined by a neurologist at New York Presbyterian. There’s no word on the findings yet.

Jason Bay and Justin Morneau have had extended absences this season because of concussions. Girardi couldn’t say whether Posada would fly to Texas tomorrow night, although it probably wouldn’t be the wisest thing. Right now, the catching is in the hands of Francisco Cervelli, who  has three RBI in his last 108 at-bats, and Chad Moeller, just back from the minors.

The injury may have happened on a Nick Markakis at-bat. Posada alerted the Yankees after Tuesday night’s game that something was wrong, and then he didn’t sleep well.  

“Georgie is a huge part of our team,” Alex Rodriguez said. “We’ll just hope for the best right now.”
