Posey Likely NOT Catching in Spring Opener

By Melissa Felkins

Chris Haft is reporting that Buster Posey will probably not be catching in the Spring Opening on Saturday (article and interview with Posey), however we may get a chance to see him at the plate. It seems that Giants management is just being extra cautious with Posey and want to ease him back into full-time catching duties.

While it’s a little bit of a bummer that he won’t be suiting up in catcher’s gear on Saturday, Bochy indicated he’d likely be catching by the second week of spring training games. I for one will just be relieved to see him playing in some capacity and am all for not rushing his conditioning back to full health.
