Susac (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list and transferred to High-A San Jose on Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. It appears that Susac's shoulder is back to full strength, although he'll re-enter the Giants' minor league ranks at a lower level than originally expected. This likely doesn't hurt his standing in the organization, as he still seems to be the main replacement for the backup catcher position at the major league level if either Buster Posey or Trevor Brown, but it's more likely an effort to get him back on track at the plate, as he was batting a lowly .214 prior to the injury. Susac very well could find his way back to Triple-A very soon.
Susac (shoulder) is getting close to joining Triple-A Sacramento, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Susac had been rehabbing both shoulder and wrist injuries at extended spring training, but it appears he's close to returning to Triple-A, where he started the year. Once healthy, he'd be a potential candidate to see Major League reps only if either Buster Posey or Trevor Brown succumb to injury at any point.
Susac (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment Friday at extended spring training, Matt Kawahara of the Sacramento Bee reports. This seems to show the Susac is progressing nicely through his rehab process. The plan is for the catcher to play four games at extended spring training and then head to High-A San Jose for three more, after which he could return from the DL as long as all goes as planned.
Susac (shoulder) played catch from a distance of 60-75 feet Monday, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Susac has so far endured a bumpy road in 2016, with a sore wrist lingering into the regular season and scapula discomfort forcing him to the sideline for good since April 11. His throwing session took place opposite George Kontos (elbow), so the Giants' organizational health appears to be improving slowly but surely. Once healthy, though, Susac will remain blocked from major league reps due to the presence of stalwart Buster Posey at the top of the catcher food chain.
Susac was placed on the minor league DL on Friday with shoulder discomfort, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports. He has also been dealing with a wrist injury, and has yet to really get started on his 2016 campaign. Consider Susac out indefinitely, and he would likely need to return and show that he was healthy over a prolonged stretch before the Giants considered recalling him to serve as the backup catcher.
