Giants got swept.
That feels like nothing when you compare it to the full details of Buster Posey’s injury. His knee is okay, but his fibula is fractured and he has torn ligaments in his ankle.
From a series of tweets by Amy Gutierrez:
Buster had 3 MRI’s, ankle, lower leg & knee…knee is fine, fractured [fibula] & torn ligaments in ankle.Â #sfgiants
Head trainer Groeschner saystorn ligaments in ankle is most serious injury – will most likely require surgery.Â #sfgiants
Might be 6-8 weeks of rehab, maybe more according toÂ #sfgiants trainer – he could not predict if Posey would return this season, “TBD”
Asked how severe the ankle tears are on a scale from 1-10, Groesch said, “it’s severe.”
Groeschner did not rule out that Posey could catch again, “he has age on his side…he’s a great athlete”Â #sfgiants
And from Jaymee Sire:
Bochy was asked if he expects to see Posey back at some point this year. Bochy: “I do.”

The ankle will require surgery for Posey
#sfgiants and Posey will get more opinions, but surgery could be as soon as this weekend. 3 torn ligaments in his ankle.
