Times: Posada has muscle tear

According to Tyler Kepner of The New York Times, Jorge Posada has a muscle tear and is likely headed to the disabled list.

Posada was a late scratch from this afternoon's lineup, and the Yankees said that they would not announce why until after the game. It appears that we have finally found out why.

Posada had been out of the lineup for a good part of April due to a "dead" shoulder and Jose Molina has caught 39 more innings than Posada has this season.

Chad Moeller was designated for assignment yesterday and can be claimed by another team.

It's great that Posada is in the first year of his new $52.4 million contract and held out for the Yankees to give him a fourth year. Hopefully Moeller does not get claimed and can come back to backup Molina. I can't understand why they designated Moeller for assignment when Posada still wasn't fully healthy.
