Latest Update Buster Posey is out Wednesday due to left hip tightness. Wed Aug, 20, 06:30 PM
Boasts a fantastic eye at the plate with good power and the ability to drive in plenty of runs. Doesn't strike out a lot, relative to his walks. Can also play first base.
Flaws: : Injuries are an issue here, especially a devastating leg fracture, which has limited his long-range prospects behind the dish. Doesn't have as much value as a first sacker.
While the earlier report about needing a day off wasn't wrong, it failed to tell the whole story apparently. Consider Posey day-to-day with the hip tightness and check back here for updates on his condition daily.Analyst: Howard Bender
It's a routine day off for Posey who has started 30 of the last 31 games. Nothing to worry about. Andrew Susac will handle the work behind the plate Wednesday while Travis Ishikawa takes care of first base.Analyst: Howard Bender
Bethea suffered a concussion in their last preseason game. The veteran safety should be ready for the regular season, but concussion symptoms can linger and has to be fully cleared by the NFL before he can return to the field.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
It is too early to tell how long he will be out for and if he will miss any regular season games. The veteran safety is a big part of the 49ers defense and will be greatly missed.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
