JUPITER Jung-ho Kang Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Jorge Posada’s graying hair Monday, a jarring sight for fans who recall he spent his entire playing career with the New York Yankees.But Posada switched allegiances to return to the majors, and he’s at spring training as a special adviser to his close friend and former teammate, Marlins CEO Derek Jeter.“Perfect timing,” Posada said Monday. “Derek approached me sometime in January and said, ‘Do you want to get back in the game?’ I said, ‘Yeah!'”Posada retired following the 2011 season, his 17th as a Yankees catcher. He spent the next few years focusing on family while living in Miami, and now that his son is in college and his daughter is in high school, he decided to help the home team.His job is loosely defined, which for Posada was part of the appeal.“He took some time off in retirement Francisco Cervelli Jersey , and felt as though he wanted to get back into the game,” Jeter said. “This was a way for him to do it at his own pace.“He’s going to add a lot of value. I’m coming from an organization that valued ex-players. We want to bring that same vibe to this organization.”Posada, 47, gave catchers a tutorial Monday on how to make tags at the plate. He’ll be in uniform some and said he wants to work mostly with minor leaguers.“I’m looking forward to doing everything possible to have the kids move up and get them to the big leagues,” he said. “That’s the main goal.”Newly acquired Jorge Alfaro, entering his second full major league season, also is expected to benefit from Posada’s tutelage.“We have a young catcher who’s growing, and we think he’ll be a tremendous asset for him,” president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. “He’ll assist our young players in learning what it means to be a champion.”Posada played on four World Series championship teams, and Alfaro said he has childhood memories of watching his new mentor on TV.When asked how Posada can help him, Alfaro grinned.“He can help me with everything http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey ,” Alfaro said, emphasizing the last word. “Pick something. He may get tired of me asking him a lot of things. Every time I see him, I’m going to have a question.”Posada is the latest addition to the Marlins with Yankees ties. Don Mattingly is entering his fourth season as manager, and since Jeter’s group bought the Marlins in late 2017, they’ve added vice president of player development Gary Denbo, director of player personnel Dan Greenlee and director of amateur scouting D.J. Svihlik. All have backgrounds with the tradition-rich Yankees.The Marlins, by contrast, haven’t been to the postseason since 2003, when Posada happened to make the last out against them in the World Series.He believes the Marlins will win again because of their new boss — Jeter.“He’s a tough one,” Posada said. “He demands a lot. He wants this organization to be first-class. The way he played the game tells you a lot — no excuses, and winning is No. 1. He’s going to make this a winning organization.” By the time the All-Star break concludes http://www.piratesfanproshop.com/authentic-josh-bell-jersey , Baltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado likely will be wearing a different uniform.According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic, "Machado will represent the Orioles in the All-Star Game....but he is expected to be traded before the regular season resumes later in the week, according to sources involved in the trade discussions."There have been no shortage of Machado reports in recent days:Ken Rosenthal Ken_Rosenthal#Dodgers remain in mix for Machado, sources tell The Athletic. #Brewers in consistent contact with #Orioles; #Phillies as well. Yankees seem less involved. Talks fluid. BAL internal politics make nothing a sure thing.Buster Olney Buster_ESPNSource indicated last Sunday his sense was that the Orioles were at the 35-yard-line and driving in the Machado trade conversations. Same source this Sunday: quot;10-yard-line.quot; PHI, Brewers, Dodgers waiting for the goal line call. As mentioned yesterday, Orioles have narrowed focus.Nick Cafardo nickcafardoMultiple teams still in the hunt for Manny Machado. Yankees are quot;seriousquot; according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Also, growing number of teams lining up their bids for closer Zach Britton.The Machado chase remains the most fascinating story in baseball because of his pending free agency.How much will interested teams be willing to give up for a potential rental? Will Machado give extra consideration to re-signing with the team that trades for him, or is he simply going to seek the most lucrative offer and biggest market? If Machado's new team doesn't win the World Series, was it worth it to sacrifice prospects?Those aren't easy questions for prospective suitors to answer. One thing is all but certain, however: Machado's time in Baltimore has come to a close.During the Orioles' 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday Corey Dickerson Jersey , Machado was removed from the game ahead of the fifth inning following a brief rain delay. Manager Buck Showalter told reporters field conditions played a part in the decision but alluded to a potential trade."Obviously, there's a different situation going on with Manny," he said, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun. "You all know that. That had a lot to do with it. ... A month ago, he wouldn't have come out of the game. We know that. You know it. You're smart. I think you know what's going on."The non-waiver trade deadline isn't until July 31, but it appears the Machado sweepstakes is nearing its end. By the time the regular season resumes, it seems likely the superstar shortstop will have finally been dealt.
