Via the Daily News -
New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada will come off the disabled list before Friday night’s game at Cleveland.
The All-Star played six innings Thursday in an extended spring training game, then said he was scheduled to fly to Cleveland to meet up with his team.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Posada will be activated but he did not yet have a corresponding roster move.
Posada has been sidelined since straining his right hamstring May 4. The Yankees open a four-game series with the Indians on Friday night.
“The hamstring is feeling good,” Posada said. “I’m happy with everything. The most important thing was just running, seeing some pitches and getting the timing down.”
Wow. This is four weeks faster than I thought.
Who goes to make room? Kevin Cash, Angel Berroa or Brett Tomko – with the latter being a long-shot. When you consider that Berroa has not faced a pitcher since May 4th, Cash might be safe for a little while longer…
