Following Buster Posey's horrifying collision and consequent injury on Wednesday night, the first we heard on Thursday morning was that Posey had sustained a broken leg and torn ligaments. That was pretty much the worst-case scenario, and it seemed a foregone conclusion that Posey would miss the rest of the season.
#SFGiants roster moves: Posey placed on DL w/fracture to bone in lower left leg.
Just talked to Brian Sabean in clubhouse: "What's being reported is not factual. They probably got it half right."
So Posey definitely has a broken leg. That's bad. We do not, however, know anything about any ligaments, and we won't until after Posey has an MRI, which is scheduled for noon Thursday. It's possible that his injury is not as severe as it appeared just a few hours ago.
So we wait. Posey is definitely going to be out for an extended period of time. But we cannot say with certainty that he will won't return later in the season.
