Yank GM Brian Cashman met with Jorge Posada at Yankee Stadium on Monday, informing him that his primary role will be DH.
However, he should expect to do some catching next season.
Yankees are planning to give top prospect Jesus Montero the opportunity to win the starting job in spring training.
Francisco Cervelli will also compete for playing time.
Austin Romine, another catching prospect, will start in Triple-A.
