For the last six weeks, Posey has been rehabilitating and strengthening his leg in Scottsdale. He is taking batting practice. He has caught bullpen sessions from instructional-league pitchers. He is running 100-foot sprints, at 90 to 100 percent of full speed, he surmises, with no noticeable discomfort. … He is encouraged by his progress.
Posey ended his daily workouts this weekend and headed back to his home in Georgia to begin his offseason resting period. When it comes time for pitchers and catchers to report to spring training in February, he fully expects his once-fractured left leg to be all the way back to 100 percent.
Posey earned Rookie of the Year honors in 2010 after registering a .305 batting average, .862 OPS, 18 home runs and 67 RBI in 108 regular-season games. He was hitting .284/.368/.389 this year until the collision.
