Posada sratched due to shoulder soreness

Here comes one of the first negatives of spring training. Jorge Posada was removed from today's lineup due to shoulder soreness. From Peter Abraham:

Spoke to Posada and Girardi. Posada felt some pain while stretching on Thursday and has been playing since. He didn’t think it was a big deal, But when he woke up with it again today, he said something to the trainer and was checked out by the doctor.

He won’t throw until Tuesday at the earliest. They’re describing it as the first setback he has had in his rehab but nothing to be too concerned about. But obviously there are concerns. To me, this illustrates that while the Yankees are a stronger team than they were last season, Posada and Mariano Rivera remain major concerns.
Uh oh. Shelley Duncan was put in at DH instead.

If I hear anything else, I'll post an update.
