The San Francisco Giants have made it official as they placed catcher Buster Posey on the 15-day disabled list with a broken bone in his left leg. The move had been previously tweeted by CSN Bay Area’s Amy Gutierrez. The Giants did not make any reference to potential ligament damage in his knee or ankle, so the full extent of the injury is not quite known yet. Posey would likely be done for the season with this injury, but ligament damage could potentially leave him with a longer rehab schedule.
Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins has expressed significant regret for the hit and is feeling guilty about the significant injury he caused. He has apparently left Posey two messages and could not sleep Wednesday night after the game. Giants fans might take little consolation from Cousins comments, but it certainly can’t be easy for him to live with this right now. The replays are airing everywhere and he said himself that he has to turn away when it is shown.
