Posada Likely Headed for Disabled List - New York Times:
The Yankees said there would be no announcement until after the game, but Posada, who has a tear in his subscapularis muscle, is expected to visit Dr. James Andrews and will most likely be placed on the disabled list.
Posada has already shared his magnetic resonance imaging results with Andrews, and Posada has said that surgery would not be necessary. But the problem has not improved as Posada hoped, again raising the specter of an operation.
Dr. Andrews means surgery, period. You do not go see him in person unless you are scared shitless about what's going on with your arm. He's "the doctor of last resort."
They put the kid from Scranton, Chad Moeller, on assignment when they brought up arms to bolster the bullpen. So, right now, the Yankees have one, count 'em, ONE catcher.
Good God Almighty, if Jorge goes under the knife, this season is hosed. He's the single player whose absence for any length of time is an unmitigated disaster. Losing his switch-hitting bat would be bad enough; with the Kiddie Korp Twins of Kennedy and Hughes struggling as they are, the loss of his presence behind the plate will be a disaster.
