How long can this keep him out? Like a minimum-maximum range?

I don't know the min, but he'll at least go on the dl, so 15 days for sure. Max, he could be done for the year.

Well I don't own Posada and I haven't for many years in any league.

Personally I could care less if the team said he had cancer and it only turned out to be a cold. I have read several posters proclaim Toronto as liars who shouold never be believed again based on their handling of BJ Ryan last year - so that tag should be applied here as well.

The Yankees were carrying three catchers for a few days until they felt sure both Posada and Molina could catch. If they knew Posada was going on the DL, they wouldn't have DFA'd Chad Moeller the other day, leaving them with just one catcher for yesterday's game. This situation is nothing like what the Blue Jays have done.

According to an unnamed source, Posada should not be out for the entire season. And a more specific timetable will be given in a few days...

Sigh, the one year I draft a catcher moderately high, and it's the first time Posada goes on the DL. What the hell.

per Rotoworld

Buster Olney reported on ESPNEWS that the initial examination of Jorge Posada's shoulder injury showed no major damage.

Considering the pessimistic way that Posada was talking about his situation Sunday and Monday, no major damage would qualify as a very positive surprise. He's eligible to return from the disabled list in two weeks. Apr. 29 - 10:59 am et
