PREGAME NOTES:

  • Bad news regarding Posada: Pete Abe reports that the MRI on Posada's shoulder revealed capsule damage and it is in worse shape than earlier in the season. Surgery is imminent and will require a 6-month rehab. Unfortunately, the Yanks have decided to let Posada rehab the injury for two weeks and make a decision on his season - clearly risking his health for 2009.
  • Robinson Cano is 12-for-23 (.522) since the All-Star Break.
  • Yanks have won 9 straight games at home and 10 of 13 overall.
  • Glen Perkins is a lifetime 0-1, 11.25 ERA, 3.00 WHIP in one start against the Yanks. He is 3-0, 3.52 ERA, 1.37 WHIP in 5 starts on the road this season.
    Mike Mussina is a lifetime 21-6, 3.18 ERA, 1.18 WHIP in 31 starts against the Twins. He is 11-3, 3.00 ERA, 1.22 WHIP over his last 16 starts dating back to April 23.
