Posey (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in his return to the lineup Saturday against the Rockies. After sitting out Friday with swelling in his ankle, Posey drew back into the cleanup spot Saturday and collected his 19th hit of the month. Although he was unable to factor into the scoring, it was a sigh of relief for Posey owners everywhere that he was able to play a full game Saturday considering the amount of pain he looked to be in when he limped off the field Thursday. Look for Posey to remain in the lineup for Sunday's series finale at Coors Field, when the Giants face right-hander Tyler Chatwood.
Posey (ankle) is back in the lineup, batting cleanup for Saturday's game against the Rockies. He'll take over at first base in place of Brandon Belt in his first game back since suffering an ankle injury in the Giants' series opener in Colorado. Posey has been on fire in June, slashing .383/.423/.596 with two home runs, and he'll look to continue that trend Saturday at Coors Field.
Posey (ankle) will not start Friday against the Rockies but is expected to be available off the bench, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey left Thursday's game with a sore ankle, but the issue doesn't appear to be anything serious. "I'm really happy with the way I feel," Posey told reporters Friday. All signs point to the catcher returning to the lineup Saturday.
Posey's ankle injury isn't considered to be serious but he is expected to miss the next two games, Andrew Bagarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports. This comes as a relief after Posey left the field looking to be in considerable pain after hitting a home run against the Rockies. He's currently dealing with some swelling in his ankle, which will likely keep him out until at least Sunday, but the club is optimistic that Posey is not facing an extended absence. Look for Nick Hundley to start in Posey's place behind the plate for the next couple of games out in Colorado.
Posey left Thursday's game with ankle soreness, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports. The Giants lost both Posey and Eduardo Nunez in the same inning of Thursday's game against the Rockies. Posey slugged a home run on the play he was injured and he limped around the bases before heading directly to clubhouse with the Giants' training staff. There's still no word on the severity of Posey's injury, but Nick Hundley figures to start at catcher if Posey is to miss additional time beyond Thursday.
