One day after getting his nose broke from an errant throw, Jorge Posada was released from the hospital.
General manager Brian Cashman said Thursday that Posada could be out up to a week but is not worried about his status for Opening Day.
This is the 2nd time the catchers sniffer was shattered.
On May 13, 2004, Posada was injured when he took a ball in the nose while on the basepaths. During the 2nd inning, Posada was running to 2nd base on a double-play ball when a ball thrown towards first by Angels shortstop Alfredo Amezaga struck him. The ball deflected off Posada's arm as he reacted and hit his nose, breaking it. Amezaga threw the ball side arm, which wasn't necessary given the situation.
