Joe Girardi plans to take a look at Jorge Posada at first base this spring. If Posada were to play first during the season, it would likely be in an emergency situation. The Yankees have Nick Swisher and Eric Chavez, who can also play first.

"I'm not comfortable, but I'll do it," Posada said of playing first.

If Chavez makes the team, then it is hard to see Posada playing there at all. But if not, he could be an option for Girardi.
