As the Yankees search for their next DH, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports asked them if they might consider bringing Jorge Posada back again now that Jesus Montero is out of the picture. However he was told that there is a “very small chance” that they would go that route. Heyman gave it about a one percent chance of happening.
In a strict platoon with Andruw Jones, Posada wouldn’t be a terrible idea. At the very least he would probably be a better option than Johnny Damon. He had a .348 OBP and an .814 OPS against righties last year.
The problem I see with this situation is that Posada is now 40-years-old and he was pretty inconsistent last season. At times he would be red hot, crushing righties, but at other times it didn’t matter who was on the mound. At this point they would probably be better off looking around for an alternative option.
