PHOENIX – The Giants are hoping that Buster Posey dodged the worst from Friday night’s foul tip to the mask. Posey was expected to do cardio work and swing the bat Saturday. If he passes a subsequent concussion tests he could play Sunday at first base.
“Buster feels great,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s really encouraging.”
Posey had to leave Friday’s game in the third inning. He got light-headed after he singled off Patrick Corbin, two innings after taking the Paul Goldschmidt foul tip to the mask.
As the Giants know all too well, concussion symptoms can appear any time, so the medical staff will check Posey again Sunday morning.
