Buster Posey (head) went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

Posey homered off of flamethrower Carter Capps in the eighth inning to draw the Giants to within 5-4, but they would be unable to push across another run and ultimately fell by that final score. It's good to see him back in the lineup, as he took a foul ball off his mask in Wednesday's contest with the Marlins. After passing a concussion test, he hit in his normal cleanup spot and looked like his normal self on Thursday. Posey is hitting .304/.377/.496 with 13 homers and 56 RBI this season.

Posey stayed in after the incident, but he was removed in the fifth inning. He's being re-evaluated, likely for concussion symptoms, and the club may have a better prognosis after the game. Andrew Susac would be in line for the bulk of the playing time if Posey is forced to miss time.
