Jorge Posada catches bullpen session for Gio Gonzalez (Video)

Courtesy of Gio Gonzalez‘s Instragram, he threw his first bullpen session of the year today.

His catcher? The retired Jorge Posada. Gonzalez posted a picture and a video on his Instragram account.

Gonzalez has been ridiculously consistent in his career. For the last four seasons he has made at least 32 starts and posted a sub-4.00 ERA. In 2013 he went 11-8 with a 3.36 ERA, 3.41 FIP, and a solid 8.8 K/9.

The Nationals will have World Series aspirations again in 2014 in no small part because of the guys in their starting rotation: Gonzalez, Stephen Strasburg, Doug Fister, and Jordan Zimmerman. As Gonzalez prepares for the season, a session with an all-time great catcher isn’t a bad place to start.
