ALDS Roster Notes

Complete rosters have not been released yet, but there were a few updates throughout the day:

- Jorge Posada will be the Yankees DH in the ALDS (at least vs. righties):
Posada said Girardi informed him on Thursday morning that he would be starting as the team's DH in Game 1 on Friday night.

"Our intent is to use Jorgie as our DH," Girardi said. "We will go with that, and you just play it out."
- Girardi said that Jesus Montero will be healthy enough to play. “I saw him today. He’s fine. He got hit on the outside of the last two fingers. He’ll have a bruise, but I saw it. There wasn’t really any swelling. He’s okay."

- Girardi also said that A-Rod is fine, will play tomorrow, and he expects him to play third throughout the playoffs.

- Chris Dickerson is on the ALDS roster.

- Raul Valdez and Aaron Laffey are not, so Boone Logan will be the Yankees only lefty in the pen.

- Umpires for Yankees-Tigers: Gerry Davis (crew chief) Tony Randazzo, Eric Cooper, Dan Iassogna, Ted Barrett and Bill Welke.
