Tyler Kepner reports in the NYT that Jorge Posada was scratched this afternoon due to “a tear in his subscapularis muscle,” the same shoulder problem that has hampered him all season. A trip to the DL (a career first) and to Dr. James Andrews are in the offing. The Yanks have no backup to Jose Molina, having DFA’ed Chad Moeller.
Update: In case you’re wondering, the most logical short-term (!) solution in the Yankee system is probably Chris Stewart, who’s had a few cups of coffee in the bigs (with the ChiSox and the Rangers), and is currently hitting around .300/.400/.300 at AAA Scranton. (Expect the average and obp to drop.) In his ML debut he threw out Grady Sizemore on the pads twice, according to his bio.
