Now that Andy Pettitte has returned and Raul Ibanez‘s spring numbers are not upto the liking of some fans it might seem like the perfect opportunity for Jorge Posada to make his comeback and go for a DH spot.
Just don’t hold your breath.
Joel Sherman of the NY Post checked back in with Posada since the Pettitte news broke and Posada told him that he is staying retired and the news has changed nothing.
So much for the band getting back together. It’s a shame too because while Posada didn’t have a great year last year, he did manage an .814 OPS and a .351 wOBA against righties last year while Ibanez only managed a .747 and .319 against them respectively.
