Buster Posey has been reported to be on schedule from his ankle rehab, but the Giants are exercising some caution: Posey will not play in Saturday’s Cactus League opener against the Diamondbacks. That according to Andrew Baggarly of

Indeed, it’s possible that he’ll miss the following two or three games, as the Giants remain cautious about his sliding and baserunning. Here’s Bruce Bochy:

“At this point, we feel he’s better off (not playing),” Bochy said. “Could he go back there and catch? Yeah. But we want to make sure he’s ready. We want to be 100 percent sure.”

Opening Day is most important, of course.  Unless someone says otherwise, this doesn’t sound like a Kendrys Morales situation or anything.

    As long as he is playing in October everything will be good. Buster is the DUDE and I hope he comes come 100% because he has not even begun to tap into his greatness. He is going to be the cornerstone of the franchise for years to come. GO GIANTS!!
