Posey Comments on Playing Status

Posey told reporters he thinks he can play Wednesday and hadn’t tested his foot running Tuesday.

When asked if he would have to be more limited in his running upon his return, Posey said, “I hope not. That’s a big part of my game,” per Andrew Baggarly of Bay Area News Group.

Posey Crucial to Giants’ Hopes

As the face of the Giants franchise during its semi-dynastic run of three World Series titles in five seasons, Posey is the signal-caller for San Francisco’s pitching staff and one of the most productive bats in the lineup.

In seasons during which he’s played at least 100 games, Posey has never hit below .294 or fewer than 15 home runs. It’s helped him garner three All-Star appearances, three Silver Sluggers and a batting title in 2012.

He’s solidified his spot as the No. 3 hitter in a Giants lineup that is lacking power. Posey was second on the team in home runs in 2015 with just 19, trailing shortstop Brandon Crawford’s 21.
