Posey supplied all the offense for the Giants on Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in the win over the Dodgers.

Posey has gotten off to a bit of a slow start in 2015, but his numbers (.263, three homers, 10 RBI) are still top-10 among catchers this season. His BABIP sits at an uncharacteristically low .262, so the batting average should rise, along with his run production as long as Nori Aoki (.392 OBP), Joe Panik (.342 OBP), and Angel Pagan (.389 OBP) continue to get on base in front of him.

Posey went yard for the second time this season, but it wasn't enough as the Giants lost to the Padres 6-4 Sunday.

Posey has gotten off to a solid start in 2015 despite facing only right-handed pitchers for all but two of his at-bats. This just goes to show how consistent of a hitter Posey is. Lefty-righty splits do not seem to affect the All-Star slugger, as he slashed .305/.359/.521 against lefties and .314/.366/.478 against righties in 2014.

Posey (shoulder) started at first base Thursday, going 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the spring training loss to Oakland.

Posey was removed from Wednesday's game with scapula discomfort, but it wasn't considered serious. The fact that he was back on the field the very next day shows that even the Giants' organization doesn't view this as anything to worry about. Ideally, we would like to see Posey handle a full game behind the plate, but the Giants appear to have dodged a bullet with their star catcher.

Considering he will be back in the lineup Thursday, this does truly seem very minor. Still, it is something for owners to keep an eye on as the regular season approaches.

Posey is expected to see roughly 120 games behind the plate this season, CSN Bay Area reports.Assistant GM Bobby Evans stated that the plan is for Posey to play "120 behind the plate" and that he "wouldn't expect anything below that." Posey has averaged 115.3 games behind dish over the past three seasons, so we should expect more of the same in 2015. The Giants will move him over to first base regularly to keep their star slugger's legs fresh. Assuming good health, Posey will see 145-150 starts this season.
