Posey is not in the lineup for Wednesday's tilt with the Padres, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Posey went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Monday against the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey's .783 OPS in the early going represents by far his lowest mark since 2011, but perhaps this performance will get him going. The catcher is still batting clean-up, so RBI opportunities will continue to be plentiful.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey (foot) will be able to catch Madison Bumgarner for Friday's game against the Dodgers, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey returned from a foot injury Thursday and went 0-for-4 in a loss to the Rockies, but he told reporters after the game that his foot felt fine when he was running the bases. Barring some sort of setback before Friday's game, Posey should be fine to catch a second day in a row when the Giants open up a series with the Dodgers.

Posey (foot) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey had been dealing with pain in his foot, which kept him out of the lineup Tuesday and Wednesday. Initially considered questionable to play Thursday, Posey will return to the lineup and bat third while starting behind the plate.

Posey's injured foot is showing improvement, but he still felt pain while running Wednesday and could be held out again Thursday, Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey's recovery from his foot injury is apparently moving in the right direction, but he is not out of the woods yet, and could miss each game of the Giants' current three-game series with the Rockies. Posey will likely test his foot again Thursday, and the Giants will release some sort of update on his status prior to Thursday's afternoon affair.

Posey (foot) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Rockies, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was expected that Posey would just need one game off to rest his foot, but he will sit for a second day in a row Wednesday as his foot still isn't right. Trevor Brown, who hit two home runs in Tuesday's game, will start behind the dish and hit eighth, and will likely be heavily owned in daily leagues thanks to playing in Coors Field and his exploits Tuesday. Posey should be considered questionable for Thursday's day game in Colorado.

Posey (foot) will test his foot running Wednesday afternoon, but there's a good chance that he won't start again on Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Posey had hoped to return for Wednesday's game after missing Tuesday's contest, but the early indications seem to be lining up against him. If Posey is forced out of the lineup again, Trevor Brown will likely get another start behind the plate.
