Former World Series MVP Salvador Perez, who ended the 2014 Fall Classic with a popup, had two hits in that contest and has reached base safely in 11 of 12 games in 2017.

Federowicz, 29, appeared in two games for the Giants and picked up just three plate appearances while Posey was on the shelf.

Over at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday evening, the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals will be concluding their Major League Baseball series. The Giants tied the game in the 6th and scored the game victor in the 11th when Joe Panik looped a two-out single to right-center, just in front of a diving Lorenzo Cain, scoring Nick Hundley from second base. The Royals went 1-for-11 with runners in scoring position, the only hit being Lorenzo Cain's infield single. The 32-year-old yielded one run on five hits in as many innings as he attempts to turn the tables from his 5.77 ERA and 1.52 WHIP since 2015. Jason Hammel only allowed one run and that came in the sixth inning on Hunter Pence's run-scoring single.

Bochy said in a text message to The Associated Press that he was doing well following his brief procedure.

Posey was the designated hitter batting cleanup for the opener of a two-game series in Kansas City, and bench coach Ron Wotus said Posey will likely serve as the DH on Wednesday, too.

The Giants only needed 11 tense innings to beat the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.

Posey was injured during San Francisco's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on April 10 when he was hit in the helmet by an errant pitch from Taijuan Walker. He resumed swinging before Tuesday night's game.

Royals LHP Jason Vargas tries to continue his hot start. Bumgarner will start Wednesday in the finale of the Giants' two-game interleague series against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium. He started Thursday's 3-1 loss to Colorado and pinch-hit two nights earlier, going 0-for-2 with a walk combined.
