Posada To Have Surgery

Jorge Posada will undergo season-ending surgery on his shoulder.
Posada, who signed a four year $52.4 million contract before the season began, started the season on the DL, made a short appearance as a DH, 1B, and backstop batting .268 with 3 home runs and 33 RBI in 51 games. His batting, slugging, and on base percentages are well below career average and as a catcher, has thrown out a smidgen over 20% of all base runners, also below league average.
His first stint on the DL was due to shoulder discomfort. He was placed in the 15-day DL and went though rehab only to show no definitive results.
Posada was placed on the DL again for discomfort and decided to opt for surgery, which is reported to be more intense than the surgery he had back in 2001.
Posada's injury consists of damage to the tendons around the labrum, but not a full rotator cuff tear.

Here are the recent DL reports for Posada from ESPN:

Yankees July 22: Placed catcher Jorge Posada on the 15-day disabled list; activated outfielder Johnny Damon from the 15-day disabled list.

Yankees June 5: Activated catcher Jorge Posada from the 15-day disabled list; optioned pitcher Dan Giese to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League (AAA).

Yankees April 29: Placed catcher Jorge Posada on the 15-day disabled list; purchased the contract of catcher Chris Stewart from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the International League (AAA).
