Giants C Buster Posey sitting Saturday following rough night


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(1:48 pm ET) Giants catcher Buster Posey is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals. Posey got banged up behind the plate and at the plate on Friday, including getting hit by a pitch in his elbow.

He was likely going to have Saturday off anyway, with a day game following a night game. But his availability for late-inning duties remains in question. Manager Bruce Bochy did say he only expects Posey to miss one game, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Andrew Susac will be the battery-mate for starter Ryan Vogelsong on Saturday.

Grandal has missed the last four games with the injury, which occured when he was struck by a foul ball in his non-throwing shoulder.
