Leading up to Thursday night's game with Tampa Bay, the Yankees placed Jorge Posada (foot) on the 15-day disabled list and sent reliever Mark Melancon to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Bombers promoted catcher Chad Moeller and infielder Kevin Russo; Nick Johnson was moved to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Moeller on the 40-man roster.

Russo has been getting some playing time in the outfield as well at Scranton, and manager Joe Girardi said he could play in the outfield as well up here, considering all the recent injuries. "Russo can do a lot of different things," Girardi said.
