Updates from Yankee Stadium

Some pre-game news to report from the Bronx:

  • Mariano Rivera is scheduled to throw a bullpen today. Jorge Posada is not going on the DL at this moment; the plan is that he still may be ready to catch by Friday. He’ll be evaluated tomorrow.
  • Greg Golson has been called up from Triple-A as the Yankees think they can use Posada as an emergency catcher – just not for nine innings. Joe Girardi said that Golson isn’t necessarily strictly a bench player, there are some situations where he might consider starting him against a lefty.
  • Down in Tampa, Chan Ho Park is throwing a half-mound today and could try to throw a full mound session tomorrow. 
  • Girardi visited today with FDNY Engine 39, Ladder 16 in Manhattan and got to try the gear on. He was surprised how heavy and hot it was.

No reason to call Montero up to ride the bench; the Yankees want him to stay at AAA all year if possible. Golson is on the 40-man roster.
