Posada Skips Surgery for Now

WFAN reports that Jorge Posada will go the rehab route for now, and will temporarily postpone shoulder surgery. More details from Peter Abraham:

The MRI showed that his labrum is worse and that he has capsule damage. He will need surgery and a six-month rehab. However … he will try rehabbing for the next two weeks and consider trying to return as a DH and first baseman.

Posada said the Yankees are willing to have him play again this season even if it means missing part of next season. But if he comes back this season, he won’t catch.

“Catching is out of the question,” he said.

This is absurd. Posada's batting is also impacted by his shoulder and they don't need a weak hitting DH right now. Time to have the surgery and get ready for next year.
