A few months ago, we heard that the Giants were going to start catching prospect in AAA to start the 2010 season because he had issues catching fastballs. Now we hear this from Henry Schulman at the San Francisco Chronicle:
Manager Bruce Bochy insisted Friday that catching remains Posey's long-term position but said he and general manager Brian Sabean have talked about Posey playing some infield this spring to boost his chances of making the team.
"We're going to give him a lot of playing time this spring," Bochy said. "Everybody looks at the situation with Bengie (Molina) and Eli (Whiteside) and think that Buster has to go to Fresno. But that's not etched in stone."
Will we hear by mid-season that Posey will start playing 3B in the minors?
