      Giants' Buster Posey: Still plans to catch in 2019

      Buster Posey (hip) hasn't discussed transitioning to a new position, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.Posey underwent season-ending hip surgery in late August, but despite the major injury, he still intends to primarily play catcher in 2019. This season was the first time since 2011 in which Posey didn't appear in at least 140 games, so he's been one of the most durable catchers in the league over that span. Things can change over the offseason depending on how he recovers from the operation, but at this point, Posey intends to fill the same role next season.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Shifted to 60-day DL

      Buster Posey (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday.Posey has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery Monday. This move simply frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregor Blanco, whose contract was purchased from the minors Wednesday. At this point, it's unclear if Posey will be ready to go for the start of the 2019 season.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Has succesful surgery

      Buster Posey underwent surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum in his hip, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.Posey landed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, and after having season-ending surgery, he'll return to San Francisco later in the week to begin rehabbing. The projected timetable for his return is 6-to-8 months, so it's unclear if Posey will be ready in time for the beginning of the 2019 campaign.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Officially lands on DL

      Buster Posey (hip) was officially placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.This is largely a procedural move, as the All-Star backstop is already slated to miss the remainder of the season due to hip surgery coming up Monday. This move will allow the San Francisco Giants to call up Aramis Garcia to provide catching depth in his stead. Posey will now look ahead to recovering for the 2019 season, though his 6-to-8 month recovery timetable puts his availability for next season's Opening Day in doubt.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Not in Saturday's lineup

      Buster Posey (hip) is out of the lineup against Texas on Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Posey is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his right hip Monday, though he's yet to be placed on the disabled list or taken off the active roster at this point. Per Robert Murray of The Athletic, catching prospect Aramis Garcia will be called up by the San Francisco Giants, which indicates that Posey's time in 2018 is all but over. That said, unless the Giants make the roster move prior to Saturday's game, there's a chance Posey will be available as a bat off the bench. Nick Hundley will handle the catching duties and hit cleanup.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Hip surgery scheduled for Monday

      Buster Posey will have season-ending surgery on his injured right hip on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.According to Baggarly, the projected recovery period for Posey's surgery is 6-to-8 months. That puts his availability for Opening Day in some doubt -- a six-month recovery would keep Posey out until late February, while eight months would sideline him through late April. The San Francisco Giants have fallen out of the race, so the sooner Posey's injury gets addressed, the better.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Hip surgery imminent

      Buster Posey appears headed for season-ending surgery after vice president of baseball operations Brian Sabean said Thursday, "He did get a second opinion in New York and I would say at this point in time the [hip] surgery is really imminent, we're trying to schedule that as we speak," in an interview on 680 KNBR.Posey hasn't started back-to-back games this week with the San Francisco Giants deliberating on his surgery, and the time to go under the knife seems to be drawing near. However, manager Bruce Bochy indicated Thursday he expects his veteran catcher to rejoin the starting lineup against the Rangers on Friday, while there remains no officially announced date for the surgery. The general recovery timeline appears to be about six months, which likely means Posey would be available for spring training in March, assuming a smooth recovery.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Potentially facing season-ending surgery

      Buster Posey could soon require season-ending surgery to address a lingering hip injury, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Posey has been battling the hip issue since late May, and at this point it seems to be a question of when -- not if -- he goes under the knife. The 31-year-old is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Mets, but he's expected to return to the starting nine Wednesday as the San Francisco Giants continue to evaluate every possible avenue for their franchise catcher. Fantasy owners who have been relying on Posey this season will likely want to begin examining the waiver wire for a potential replacement if the Giants do indeed decide to shut him down.
