Giants’ Posey catching more than expected
On Saturday, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey played in his fifth spring training game and made his fourth start behind the plate.
“I’d say the best way to describe how I feel is just more free,” he said. “I don’t feel stuck . ... I’m hoping to leave here in a couple weeks and be ready to go.”
Posey will be in the lineup on Sunday as well, but as the designated hitter. It will be his second set of back-to-back games this spring.
Posey was limited to 105 games last season.
He had surgery in August to address a hip impingement and repair a torn labrum.
