Buster Posey returns, top prospect Joey Bart checks in with Giants in Arizona

PHOENIX — For the last week and a half, both the current and future faces of the San Francisco Giants have been sidelined with serious injuries.

After a nine-day absence, catcher Buster Posey returned to the Giants on Friday and will hit third in the team’s series-opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Posey suffered a concussion after taking a foul ball off the side of his catcher’s mask on Sunday, May 5 in Cincinnati and missed the club’s last six games after being placed on the seven-day concussion injured list last Wednesday.

Posey was joined in the visiting clubhouse at Chase Field by the organization’s top prospect and his eventual replacement, Joey Bart, who was in town to check in with the Giants’ training staff.
