Jorge Posada Benched, Eric Chavez to DH Indefinitely

Jorge Posada is not in the lineup tonight, and will likely not be in the lineup much more in the future. Eric Chavez will be the new primary DH, and if that doesn't work out, Jesus Montero will be promoted. Don't expect to see Montero in the Bronx on Tuesday though, according to Joel Sherman.

Per Sherman:

I heard not 1-day thing. going with Chavez [at] DH for [a]while. If that [doesn't] work, [they] will try Montero, but no immediate plans to call [up] Montero.

Posada says Girardi told him going with best lineup, again that is not just for tonight.

Erik Boland adds:

Posada: "I'm not happy about it," but "I put myself in this situation."

Mark Feinsand contributes (a first for him):

Girardi: Yanks going to "try some different things" with Posada, so he's not in the DH mix right now. Said his roster spot isn't in trouble.

Marc Carig with the scoop:

Yankees for now will stick with the "status quo," meaning Montero [is] staying in the minors.

More to come. The preview is below. That will be updated with lineups and game news while this post will be updated with DH news, if any more comes.
