From Pete Abraham:
Xavier Nady has been cleared to play in an extended-spring-training game in Florida today. He has been on the disabled list since April 16 with a partially torn elbow ligament.
Nady, Jorge Posada (right hamstring), Jose Molina (left quad) and Cody Ransom (right quad) started working out at the team facility in Tampa yesterday.
Posada hopes to play in a game as early as tomorrow.
“It’s now a matter of getting into baseball shape,” he told The Associated Press after taking batting practice, throwing and running.
If Posada plans on getting into a game by tomorrow, you can expect both him and Nady back within 10 days. Nady’s return seems to create no issues with the roster. he will replace Angel Berroa, and will probably split time with Hideki Matsui and Nick Swisher once he can play the field. Posada’s return, However, brings to mind the question of what the Yankees are going to do once Molina is healthy as well, as the Yankees are unlikely to carry three catchers.
Frankie Cervelli has played well, showing great defensive skill while being poised at the plate. However, with Posada’s health a question mark, the Yankees may need to take roster considerations into their thought process. If they let Molina go so as to carry Cervelli and then Posada gets hurt again, they are left with Cash as the backup catcher once again. I would guess that they send Cervelli down to keep him in reserve in case of another injury. He will be given every chance to win the backup catching position in 2010.
