Posey's days off relate to a tight hamstring, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

It seemed unlikely Posey would sit for back-to-back games without an ailment, and now it's been revealed. He seems a candidate to rejoin the lineup Friday, but that will likely be determined by how he feels the day of the game. Andrew Susac will start behind the plate once again Wednesday, and he'll bat seventh for the Giants.
