Posada With 'Strained' Shoulder

According to AP, Jorge Posada's MRI revealed a strained shoulder which requires the catcher to take four or five days off. Apparently Posada's impressive streak of keeping his name off the disabled list will continue:
Jorge Posada may avoid a trip to the disabled list after an MRI taken Wednesday revealed a strained right shoulder.

Posada said prior to Wednesday's contest against the Kansas City Royals that he expects to be sidelined for three or four days but does not think he will have to go on the DL.

"The good news is that it's not something worse," he said. "I'm really happy the MRI didn't show more. It's not bad."

The situaton will be re-evaluated following his hiatus.
