Buster Posey has a 'little fracture' in finger, may play through it
X-Rays showed that Giants franchise cornerstone Buster Posey has a "little fracture" is his right ring finger.
UPDATE: Posey has a "little fracture" in the finger, manager Bruce Bochy told Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area. He'll take a few days off and if he can tolerate the pain after that, they'll let him play through it.

Posey, 26, suffered a torn fingernail while blocking a pitch in the dirt in the sixth inning on Tuesday. He finished the inning but was lifted after that and has not played since. Posey told Pavlovic he feels better but is still not ready to take swings.
In 130 games this year, Posey has hit .309/.377/.475 (145 OPS+) with 14 home runs. The Giants are in last place in the NL West at 62-77, so there's no real reason to rush Posey back to the lineup at this point of the year.
