Jorge Posada Back in the Lineup Batting 7th


jorge-posadaJorge Posada, his .165 average and .626 OPS, are back in the lineup today in the no. 7 spot ahead of Brett Gardner and Chris Dickerson.

Posada, of course, refused to play on Saturday after Joe Girardi penciled him in the lineup batting 9th and he even threatened to quit over it. So I guess Posada should thank Nick Swisher for slumping and getting sick.

Here is the rest of the lineup:

  • Derek Jeter SS
  • Curtis Granderson CF
  • Mark Teixeira 1B
  • Alex Rodriguez 3B
  • Robinson Cano 2B
  • Russell Martin C
  • Jorge Posada DH
  • Brett Gardner LF
  • Chris Dickerson RF
