Buster Posey won't really be playing the infield

Feb 17, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

A couple of weeks ago we passed along word that the Giants were going to give Buster Posey looks all over the infield, possibly even at shortstop, in order to give him playing time.  Today Bruce Bochy seemed to walk that back a bit. A tweet from the Merc’s Andre Baggarly:

Bochy clarifies on Buster Posey: He’ll just take a few grounders at 1B to keep him off his legs on occasion. “He’s a catcher.”

Now if only Bochy would take the extra step and say he’s a starting catcher.
