More Posada recovery

As reported by the Associated Press, Jorge Posada will be able to catch and throw to bases in tomorrow's extended spring training game for the first time since his shoulder injury.

Posada was the designated hitter today and went 2-5 with a walk against a team of Tampa Bay minor leaguers.

He says his shoulder feels fine but is unsure how many more games he will need to play in to test his shoulder.

Meanwhile, here is an update on an injured starting pitcher from the same article:

Carl Pavano, who is rehabbing from surgery to replace an elbow ligament, threw 40 pitches in his latest half-mound session. The right-hander could work off a bullpen mound next week.
I haven't mentioned Pavano in so long that his name hasn't been added to my Firefox dictionary (his name still gets caught by spellcheck). It's good to see that he is, uh, doing something with the team.
