Buster Posey: Giants likely to place Posey (head) on the DL
Apr 20 2017
Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford, catcher Buster Posey and second baseman Joe Panik received their 2016 Gold Gloves during a pregame ceremony.
San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey was placed on the seven-day disabled list with concussion symptoms on Tuesday, a day after he took a fastball to the helmet while batting.
"It's a scary moment, risky moment", manager Bruce Bochy said of the incident. It's a scary moment. That might be some concern for Giants fans, as they hope Posey doesn't go through the same thing.
Posey was hit in the head by a 94 miles per hour fastball from D-backs right-hander Taijuan Walker yesterday, and though Pavlovic notes that he's said to be feeling good, the team wants to proceed with caution in a potential concussion scenario.
Posey was said to be feeling all right, but the team committed to making the move out of an abundance of caution.
But Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Posey was experiencing concussion symptoms on Tuesday. The San Francisco Giants have won eight of their last 10 regular season games when allowing four or less runs. "Yeah, I could've. But that's the luxury of having one of the elite closers in the game".
Meanwhile, the Arizona Diamondbacks left Chase Field with the best record in baseball, 6-1, and the highest run differential at +19.
The normal DL time length is 10 days, but there is also a seven-day DL designated for players with head injuries. He did not walk a batter but did bean David Peralta in the eighth inning.
Still, I think he'll be good with the victory. "KATY" was spelled in the out-of-town scoreboard while photos and flowers were in the seat she often occupied during the postseason. Gardenhire was to be in Minnesota to undergo surgery for prostate cancer later this month.
"(Ray) gave us a quality outing", Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said.
Giants: RH reliever Hunter Strickland returned from the paternity list and LHP Steven Okert was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento.
The Diamondbacks are 7-19 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series, 7-19 in Rays last 26 road starts and 5-2 in Rays last 7 starts vs. Playing in Arizona, runs come in bunches and that is what happened, as the Diamondbacks ruined the flawless game in the sixth and even tied it up at 3 in the same inning.
