NEW YORK (WFAN) —Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has undergone arthroscopic surgery to repair a small tear in the meniscus of his left knee.
Dr. Lee Kaplan operated Wednesday in Miami. The Yankees expect Posada will be ready for spring training.
An earlier report from the NY Post stated that GM Brian Cashman has told Jorge Posada that he will be the Bombers’ DH next season.
From the Post:
“Cashman met with Posada in Manhattan this week to tell the veteran to, as usual, prepare to catch, but the team’s first option is to have youngsters Jesus Montero, Francisco Cervelli and Austin Romine compete in spring training for the two primary jobs. ”
Posada’s wife, Laura, posted messages Tuesday night on Twitter and Facebook that corroborate the report.
“As my friends you should be the first to know, yes Jorge will be the DH next year,” Laura Posada wrote on her Facebook wall.
“Yes, Jorge will DH next year,” Posada’s wife tweeted just minutes later.
