On Saturday, San Francisco Giants superstar Buster Posey talked with Garry & Larry about all things baseball at Giants FanFest on Saturday.
Many Giants fans have been concerned about the health of the six-time All-Star, and Posey talked about his rehab so far, as well as how major leaguers have to play through injuries. Posey had season-ending hip surgery in August.
“Going through a major rehab for a second time, you know there’s going to be bumps in the road,” Posey said of the comeback process. “So with six weeks left there are some hurdles to cross over and boxes to check, but by all accounts, everything’s gone great and I’m excited to get back out there.
“Everybody at the big league level is constantly going out there with something bugging them, so it’s part of your DNA as a baseball player to try and get out there and help your team win.”
Posey also commented on the possible Bryce Harper signing, as well as how those sorts of rumors affect a ball club.
“There isn’t a club in the major leagues that he wouldn’t make better,” Posey said of Harper. “He’s done a nice job. He’s been in the spotlight since he was 16, so he’s handled himself well.
“We’re at a point where it’s time to start focusing on what your job is. For the guys that are with you, it’s time to start coming together and having a collective thought of seeing how many games you’re going to win. Some of the ‘hot-stove’ stuff has to go to the back-burner and we just have to get ready to go.”
