My guess is that Posey is out for the year. I simply dont see the Giants risking this kids future in any way unless he is 100% fixed and ready to go. Obviously we wont know that until the extent of the ligament damage is known.
Granted I’m no medical expert. It does sound like Posey may be able to return before season’s end. One thought I had assuming the Giants still are in the mix for the division title is for the first two weeks of September, we would play Posey at first base and we wouldn’t put him at catcher until the last two weeks of the regular season. Should we win the division and qualify for the playoffs we would have Posey behind the dish for the post season in October. I’m assuming that there is a good chance he could return for the last month of the season and between now and through August would be enough time to recover which would be 3 full months (12-13 Weeks).
