Buster Posey Scheduled To Catch Against Reds On Friday

After a home-plate collision ruined his 2011 season, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey hoped to be ready by the start of spring training this year. While he didn't quite make the soft deadline, he'll still be catching the first part of a game in early March.


Posey has been doing catching and hitting drills for most of the spring. The only thing that he's been especially cautious with so for is baserunning, as he tried to slide for the first time since his injury earlier this week.

The Giants weren't very active in the offseason, loudly proclaiming that the return of Posey was akin to a major free-agent acquisition. Counting on the seamless return of a player who missed the previous season is always a risky strategy, but everyone can agree that the more spring at-bats Posey gets the better.
