It's bigger than baseball. "If you have a little bit of feeling after being hit in the head, you're gonna be on the DL". 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. There should be something more official soon.

In the last game the Giants played at home, Moore allowed one run in eight innings and departed with a three-run lead. Posey has spoken to both players about their experiences.

Posey already has begun exercising, and elevating his heart rate has not brought on any concussion symptoms, Bochy said. "Exercising caution is a good thing".

He got through a 1-2-3 first on seven pitches this time and was on a roll. But, he said, Posey would be re-evaluated Tuesday and he said, "He's doing good". Posey said he will be patient and the Giants have specialists ready to help with the timeline.

Lamb got to Jeff Samardzija (0-2) with his triple in the third to extend his hitting streak to eight games after the Giants starter gave up back-to-back singles and a one-out walk to load the bases. He was replaced by Nick Hundley, a capable veteran who lacks Posey's star quality or championship credentials.

The Giants hope their beloved catcher will not share the same fate their second baseman did a year ago. Bochy trusts Federowicz, too. "I think, in the meantime, we'll be able to hold our ground". "I checked on him a couple times throughout the game and he said it was staying the same". For now, Brandon Crawford will take over the responsibility.

The Giants are playing it cautious with Posey, and that is for the best. They owned 6-1 record before for the game on Monday and were riding a five-game win streak. It's clear we could all use a presence as solid as Buster Posey in our lives, although we need pitchers to stop hitting Buster in the head with baseballs first.
