Buster Posey C/1B SF 5 Days

Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored Friday against the Marlins.

Posey had RBI singles in the third and fifth innings. He came into Friday's action hitting just .163 (7-for-43) this month. This was his first multi-hit game since June 26. He's obviously capable of much better moving forward.

Buster Posey hit one of the Giants' two grand slams on the day, propelling the Giants to an 8-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

The homer was Posey's 10th of the season and his first since June 14. The catcher is having a down year by his standards, batting .275/.331/.422 with 46 RBI. He's particularly struggled in July, so perhaps the All-Star break comes at a good time for the 27-year-old.

It's nothing more than a day of rest for the hard-hitting backstop. Hector Sanchez will get the start behind the plate and hit fifth for the Giants against Mike Bolsinger.

Buster Posey went 0-for-4 in Thursday's loss and is 6-for-34 with two RBI so far this month.

Posey hit .362 in June, but he's back slumping again now. He's scored just one run in his last 16 games, and he hasn't homered since June 14. If the Giants are ever going to pull out of their funk, it will be up to Posey to lead the way.

Buster Posey (head) hopes to play Tuesday in the Giants' series opener against the White Sox.

Posey was lifted from Sunday's game after taking a foul tip off his catcher's mask in the fourth inning. He passed postgame concussion tests. "As a competitor, you never want to come out," Posey said Sunday evening. "But when your head feels a little weird -- I've taken a couple of hard ones in the last three or four days -- I thought it was the right move."

The Giants announced that Buster Posey was removed from Sunday's game for precautionary reasons after he took a foul ball off his catching mask in the fourth inning.

He'll be tested to ensure that he didn't suffer a concussion, but for the time being it doesn't appear as though the injury should keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time.

Posey also singled twice earlier in the game. The homer was his first since he hit his seventh way back on May 3. Hopefully it means that his back is feeling better now. He's off to a 9-for-22 start in June after hitting just .244/.315/.295 during May.
