Giants 1B Brandon Belt to see more time in left field


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt will see more time in left field as manager Bruce Bochy looks for a way to get Belt and catchers Buster Posey and Andrew Susac in the lineup at the same time, CSN Bay Area reports.

Belt drew a start in left field last Sunday for the first time since 2012, and it appears he'll see more work in the outfield moving forward. However, the impending return of right fielder Hunter Pence could also create a playing-time crunch between Belt, Susac and outfielder Nori Aoki.


Giants left fielder Nori Aoki back in the starting lineup Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Giants left fielder Nori Aoki returns to the starting lineup Saturday against the Giants and will bat lead off, reports CSN Bay Area.

Aoki, who received his first off day of the season Friday, is hitting .311 with three RBI in 74 at-bats this season. Also in the lineup Saturday is catcher Andrew Susac, with Buster Posey shifting to first base and moving Brandon Belt to the bench. Susac, making just his third start of the year, is hitting 3 for 8 with two strikeouts to start the year.


Giants C Buster Posey breaks out of normal routine with early BP


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Giants catcher Buster Posey broke out of his normal daily routine with an early round of batting practice prior to Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, reports Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Posey, who is hitting only .229 to start the season, worked on hitting the opposite field.

"He did some work off a tee today to get a couple things figured out," manager Bruce Bochy said. "You don't see it a lot, but I know Buster is trying. These guys are really trying. That goes with the territory."

Posey has only four hits over his last 24 at-bats. Two of Posey's four hits over that seven-game span are home runs. He has driven in six runs over first 14 games.

Giants C Andrew Susac (wrist) returns to action


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/22/2015) Catcher Andrew Susac entered Sunday's spring game in relief of Buster Posey, Susac's first action with the Giants since receiving a cortisone shot in his wrist on March 16.

Entering Sunday, Susac was hitting .100 in seven spring games.


No discomfort for Giants' Matt Cain in bullpen session


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain, recovering from surgeries on his elbow and ankle, passed his first bullpen test on Friday. 

Cain had surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow in August. While recovering from that procedure, he had surgery on his ankle the following month. 

Buster Posey caught Cain's bullpen session on Friday and told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that he could see a difference from last season. Cain grimaced after throwing pitches last season, but he looked "effortless" on Friday. 

"He's obviously not fighting around the bone spurs," Posey told Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area. Posey added that Cain threw a variety of pitches, including fastballs, changeups and curves. 

Cain told Pavlovic that the session felt great. "I felt pretty much full speed," he said. 


Giants C Buster Posey to hit the weights harder this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2015) Giants catcher Buster Posey took a little extra time off this winter, and plans to hit the weights harder this spring to get ready for the 2015 season, Comcast SportsNet reports.

"I really tried to take an extra two weeks more than I had after the '10 and '12 World Series, just to mentally and physically try to recoup as much as possible," Posey said. "And I'm gonna take two weeks into spring training to hit the weights a little bit harder than I have in the past, and hopefully that pays off for me throughout the season."

Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans said in January that the team expects Posey to catch 120 games but added he thinks "there's room for some above that."

"I wouldn't expect anything below that," Evans said. "Part of the challenge for us is we do want to keep Buster healthy, but we also know he's a difference-maker behind the plate in the way he calls a game, in the way he handles our pitching staff."

Posey played 111 games at catcher in 2014, starting 109 times. He saw slightly more games and games started at the positions both in 2012 and 2013. The 2012 NL MVP finished sixth in the MVP voting last season after hitting .311/.364/.490 with 22 home runs and 89 RBI in 547 at-bats.

He expects Angel Pagan to hit leadoff. He will be followed by Joe Panik, Brandon Belt, Buster Posey, Hunter Pence, Casey McGehee, Norichika Aoki and Brandon Crawford. The pitcher will hit ninth.


Giants not entertaining moving 'franchise catcher' Posey to 3B


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) While the Giants ponder replacements at third base for Pablo Sandoval, who signed a free-agent deal with the Red Sox, one option that won't be on the table is moving two-time All-Star catcher Buster Posey to the hot corner. 

Posey played shortstop in college at Florida State before primarily playing catcher and first base as a pro.

"Buster's a catcher," Giants general manager Brian Sabean said Monday at the winter meetings, per MLB.com. "He's a franchise player, a franchise catcher."


Giants C Buster Posey drives in three runs in Game 4 NLCS win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants catcher Buster Posey went 2 for 3 with a walk and three RBI in his team's 6-4 win over the Cardinals in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday.

Posey put the Giants on the board with a sacrifice fly in the first inning to tie the score 1-1. The Cardinals were able to put three more runs on the board in the next two innings, but Posey responded with an RBI single in the bottom of the third inning. After the Giants took a lead in the sixth, the catcher added an insurance run with another RBI single. Posey has posted a .333 batting average in 39 postseason at-bats but has yet to mange an extra-base hit. Even so, his excellent Game 4 performance has the Giants one win away from heading to the World Series. Game 5 is set for Thursday.
