Brandon Belt (concussion) was told following an exam in Pittsburgh that he's still at least 2-3 weeks away from being cleared for doing any physical activity.
Belt initially suffered the concussion on July 19 and returned to the disabled list earlier this month after he experienced recurring symptoms. The Giants and fantasy owners can't count on much from him the rest of the way.
Buster Posey is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs after his left hip flared up.
The issue affected his at-bats on Tuesday, so he has been getting treatment all day Wednesday. He's available off the bench and the hope is that he'll be ready to go Thursday. Consider him day-to-day.
C.J. Cron is likely to be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake this weekend.

Adam Eaton (oblique) took batting practice Wednesday.
The next step figures to be a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. If all goes well, he should rejoin the White Sox for the start of their homestand next week.
White Sox prospect second baseman Micah Johnson is done for the season with a left hamstring injury.
There's only a week and a half remaining in the minor league season, so there's no reason to push it. Johnson, 23, batted .294/.351/.403 with five home runs, 44 RBI, and 22 stolen bases over 102 games this season between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He could inherit the starting second base job in 2015.
