The Giants made the move for Hundley for exactly this reason.
Posey said he wasn't dizzy and he didn't feel out of it Monday. "I'll take him every day". "When you're dealing with your head you have to use caution". It's different than a hip or a knee obviously. It's bigger than baseball. That 6-1 mark - highlighted by a weekend sweep of the defending American League champion Cleveland Indians - was built on a potent attack that was producing 6.86 runs a game, tops in baseball. In 304 Triple-A games over the course of his career, Federowicz is a.304/.375/.511 hitter, and he also slashed an impressive.323/.417/.625 in 21 games with the Giants this spring.
The Giants have embraced a much more proactive approach to concussions after several players suffered from late-showing symptoms in recent years. Posey wasn't experiencing any symptoms at that point, leading to hope that he had avoided the worst case scenario.
Giants General Manger Bobby Evans said they do not expect Blackburn to remain with the club. That's part of what you come to expect (after a hit to the head). Groeschner led Posey off the field after a brief examination. "It's definitely nice to know that he's doing well so far". Posey said he will be patient and the Giants have specialists ready to help with the timeline.
Posey left the game and was to be checked on Monday night and into Tuesday, then re-evaluated.
In the meantime, Nick Hundley is the starting catcher.
The Giants hope their beloved catcher will not share the same fate their second baseman did previous year. Bochy trusts Federowicz, too.
"He did cardio and some lifting today and he's doing good", Bochy said. "I checked on him a couple times throughout the game and he said it was staying the same".
"Yeah, he seems fine".
The Giants are playing it cautious with Posey, and that is for the best.
