Update on Posada

Postby aravtrain21 » Mon Mar 23, 2009 11:28 am

Update on Posdada: Posada has caught back-to-back minor league spring games for the first time since shoulder surgery. He threw out 3 of 4 base stealers and was quoted after the game saying, "Now I know I can trust my arm again," Posada said. "That's the only thing I wanted to do -- come out of spring training knowing I can throw somebody out and trust my arm again." Remember, it was his shoulder that kept him out last season...not his knees. In my opinion, a year away from the dish at 37 helped Posada regain some leg strength and durability for this year. I predict him to catch 110-120 games and DH about 25-30, and never expect him to be in the lineup on Sunday for a 12 PM first pitch after catching the night before. Furthermore, he has always posted solid offensive numbers in a position of scarcity and will hit behind Matsui or Tex and in front of Nady or Cano. Anyone have similar or different opinions on his production this year? I picked him up off waivers in a 14 team H2H league. I am now starting him after I traded away Doumit in a deal where i got Oswalt and Pence...eventually wound up with Lincecum and kept Pence as well. I also recommend having a serviceable backup option like Napoli just in case something happens...after all he is 37.

The other day, he threw out Mr. Ambitious base steal Jacob Ellsbury.
Looks like he is recovered from his injury, but I think time will tell if his bat does too.

I think he has a big upside this year, and could be a steal considering where he is going in most drafts.
