Jorge Posada Has Hairline Fracture In His Right Foot

The Yankees took another hit in their lineup Wednesday night when Jorge Posada's MRI revealed he has a hairline fracture on the bottom of his right foot.

Posada is expected to miss up to a month and will most likely be placed on the disabled list Thursday.

Posada has missed the last three games because of what was originally called a "bruised" right foot. Posada was hitting .326 with a .406 on-base percentage before the injury.

Francisco Cervelli will take over full-time catching duties in Posada's absence. Cervelli has been hot at the plate, hitting .375 in 21 games.
