Giants' Posey struck in head by pitch, leaves game

"I actually thought about that".

Posey's sense of humor is intact, as are his memories from the home opener.

Posey (head) may be placed on the 10-day disabled list for precautionary reasons, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Nick Hundley replaced Posey in the Giants lineup.

The Giants have added catcher Tim Federowicz to the 25-man roster.

After Taijuan Walker hit Posey in the head with a 94 miles per hour fastball, AT&T park collectively gasped, and then booed, rightfully so. "I'll take him every day". He did not want to reveal all his symptoms, but he knew he didn't feel quite right. "When you're dealing with your head you have to use caution". It's different than a hip or a knee obviously. It's bigger than baseball. That 6-1 mark - highlighted by a weekend sweep of the defending American League champion Cleveland Indians - was built on a potent attack that was producing 6.86 runs a game, tops in baseball. In 304 Triple-A games over the course of his career, Federowicz is a.304/.375/.511 hitter, and he also slashed an impressive.323/.417/.625 in 21 games with the Giants this spring. Panik remained in the game and played for a few more days before concussion symptoms started to show. Posey has spoken to both players about their experiences.

Samardzija was a far better pitcher at home last season than he was on the road, and he'll be eager to get back on track after getting rocked by the Diamondbacks last week. Groeschner led Posey off the field after a brief examination. Posey said he will be patient and the Giants have specialists ready to help with the timeline.

US, Japan agree China should play larger role on North Korea
He added that Japan needed to apply pressure on Pyongyang to "seriously respond to a dialogue" with the worldwide community. In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi made a new appeal Tuesday for calm on the Korean Peninsula.

Teammates who checked on Posey throughout the game said he assured them he felt OK.

The Giants hope their beloved catcher will not share the same fate their second baseman did a year ago.

"He did cardio and some lifting today and he's doing good", Bochy said. He's one of your guys, he's your guy. "Yeah, I could've. But that's the luxury of having one of the elite closers in the game".

"He seemed fine", shortstop Brandon Crawford said.

A single by A.J. Pollock and one-out walk to Paul Goldschmidt loaded the bases for Lamb, whose long fly to center field barely eluded the glove of Giants center fielder Gorkys Hernandez, who appeared to slow up as he approached the outfield fence.
