Posada broken nose

Postby Pogotheostrich » Fri Mar 24, 2006 10:52 am

TAMPA, Fla. -- New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada was released from the hospital on Thursday, one day after being admitted for a broken nose.
Posada was hurt before Wednesday's night game against Boston when he was hit in the face by a ball while playing catch. X-rays revealed a fracture.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Posada could be out up to a week, but is not worried about his status for opening day.

"No, not right now," Cashman said. "No one told me I should be."





New York manager Joe Torre thinks the earliest Posada will play in another exhibition game is next Tuesday or Wednesday.

"I don't think he's going to need any kind of long-term recovery once he is able to play," Torre said. "Hopefully, that's the case."

Barring any physical problems, Torre said Posada will catch Randy Johnson in the regular-season opener.

Posada was playing catch with backup catcher Kelly Stinnett when he was hit by the ball Wednesday. Posada stayed home Thursday after leaving the hospital around 7 a.m.

In other news, Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez remained in the starting lineup with a bruised left shin, which was the result of being hit by a grounder during batting practice.

"It should be all right," Rodriguez said.

Center fielder Johnny Damon remains on schedule to play the field Saturday for the first time since experiencing left shoulder tendinitis during the World Baseball Classic. He was the designated hitter in Thursday night's game against Houston.

"Safety first, we'll wait to play him Saturday," Torre said.

Pitcher Jaret Wright played catch for the first time since being sidelined by back spasms last Sunday. Wright could throw off a mound in the next few days and expects to be ready for opening day.

"If it keeps going like this, it will be fine," Wright said. "Going from being immobile to playing catch in three days."

Sounds like he'll be OK.
