DENVER (AP) — Buster Posey understands all the fuss over his healing left leg.

And when the San Francisco Giants catcher takes a day off — even a scheduled one such as Monday against Colorado — he realizes there’s bound to be more scrutiny. That’s simply the way it’s going to be all season long.

Late last May, Posey was out for the year when he broke a bone in his left leg and tore three ankle ligaments during a horrific collision at the plate with the Marlins’ Scott Cousins.

So far this season, Posey has hardly given the leg a second thought and says he’s “really happy” with the way the ankle feels.

Posey’s hitting .333 through three games and launched a homer off Arizona’s Josh Collmenter over the weekend.
