Giants Spring Training: Buster Posey To Debut At Catcher Friday

According to CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly, San Francisco Giants skipper Bruce Bochy will likely use Buster Posey as catcher in Friday's one of the team's split squad matchups with the Cincinnati Reds, marking the first game time Posey has seen since May 25 of last year.

Bochy said Posey could catch' a few innings' and will catch battery-mate Matt Cain for his first game back. He'll also have to face Reds' flamethrower Aroldis Chapman in his first action at the plate, who's been clocked at 105, the fastest pitch ever recorded in an MLB game.

Second baseman Freddy Sanchez could also be making his Spring debut as well, but only as the DH as he is still to be cleared for full infield activities with his surgically repaired shoulder.
