"I might need to change it (back)", he said Tuesday, smiling. I think it's important to keep things rolling.

Posey's sense of humor is intact, as are his memories from the home opener. "All of these guys are going to have a rough week", Bochy said.

"It's a smart move, especially to have that one yesterday and as a catcher, you never know."

He's also caught a ideal game and two other no-hitters, and has given out a lot of hugs for a lot of different reasons. Nick Hundley replaced Posey behind the plate on Monday against the Diamondbacks and will probably see the bulk of action there over the next 7-10 days.

The Giants are playing it cautious with Posey, and that is for the best.

Playoff fever takes over Toronto with both Leafs, Raptors vying for wins
The Raptors' start to the fourth was a nightmare of turnovers and missed free throws as Milwaukee increased its lead. Toronto rallied with a big second quarter holding the Bucks to just 16 points and taking a 51-46 lead into halftime.

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.

Melancon hadn't pitched since opening day, when he blew a save and took the loss at Arizona. "If you have a little bit of feeling after being hit in the head, you're gonna be on the DL". "It's different than the hip or knee".

"I wasn't thinking about being swept", Cueto said. There should be something more official soon. Posey has spoken to both players about their experiences.

He got through a 1-2-3 first on seven pitches this time and was on a roll. It's a good idea, especially for a catcher who faces a lot of wear and tear and opportunity for additional head injuries, to take time before allowing his return.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Giants are relieved star catcher Buster Posey appears to be OK after getting hit in the helmet with a pitch. With a travel day Thursday, Posey wouldn't be needed to catch until Friday at Coors Field.

Of course, nothing can be known definitively until later in the process. Posey is likely to sit out Tuesday's game.

Catcher Tim Federowicz had his contract purchased from Triple-A Sacramento to take Posey's place, while right-hander Clayton Blackburn was designated for assignment.

Cotton (1-1) gave up a single in the first and another in the sixth, but otherwise befuddled a Royals lineup that hasn't shown much punch. They were also hitting.422 with runners in scoring position and.375 with two outs.
