New York Yankees: Jorge Posada Takes Self Out, Andruw Jones Replaces

Sports and other media outlets have reported that New York Yankee DH Jorge Posada took himself out of the lineup prior to Saturday evening's (May 14) game against the Boston Red Sox.

Posada was scheduled to hit ninth in the lineup. He was replaced by Andruw Jones about 30 minutes before the first pitch.

Yankee GM Brian Cashman said Posada asked coach Joe Girardi to remove him from the lineup.

Cashman said Posada would address reporters after the game.

Posada is hitting .165 after going 1 for 4 in Friday’s loss to Boston.

He grounded out in his final at-bat with runners on second and third to end the eighth inning, and he has yet to get a hit in 24 at-bats against left-handed pitching.
