Posada to Put Off Surgery

Ryan GaydosSenior Analyst IJuly 23, 2008

Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has been placed on the 15-Day Disabled List because of shoulder problems. However, Posada will not opt for surgery. Instead, he will go for rehab and will hope to be back playing for the Yankees soon.

Since Posada chose not to have surgery on the shoulder, he probably will not be playing catcher. Instead, the Yankees will have him either playing first base or designated hitter.
