X-Rays Negative on Jorge Posada's Foot
The Yankees had a good day on Wednesday. They won their first series in Anaheim since 2004, and they found out that X-rays on Jorge Posada's foot showed no broken bones.

The catcher fouled a ball off his toes on Tuesday but still played the entirety of New York's 6-5 win. He was sent to have X-rays on Wednesday morning after he developed a bruise, according to ESPN.com. Manager Joe Girardi is unsure whether the catcher will be available for this weekend's series against the Red Sox.

"He's sore, limping a  little bit, but there's no break," Girardi told ESPN.com after the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Angels on Wednesday. "We'll check to see how he is Friday. Whenever  he's ready, we'll put him back in there, but I don't want this to linger. I want to clear it up."

Posada is currently batting .283 with 22 home runs and 79 RBIs. He will be replaced with Jose Molina if he cannot play this weekend.

In other injury news, the status of utilityman Jerry Hairston Jr. is up in the air after he injured his wrist midway through an at-bat on Wednesday. Hairston received a cortisone shot after feeling discomfort last week and will have an MRI exam on Thursday.
