The San Francisco Giants activated catcher Buster Posey from the seven-day concussion list, just in time for him to start behind the plate and bat third in the Friday evening game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. Posey was hurt when a foul ball struck his mask in Cincinnati on May 5. He started two days later at Colorado but said he didn't feel right and got checked out the next day.

The 32-year-old veteran entered Friday batting .245 with two homers and 13 RBIs in 32 games this season. It was the second time the six-time All-Star and 2012 National League MVP was placed on the concussion list. In April 2017, he missed seven games after getting struck in the helmet by a fastball from Arizona right-hander Taijuan Walker.

The Giants had optioned catcher Aramis Garcia to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday in preparation for Posey's return. Garcia went 1-for-6 with a two-run homer and a walk over three games.
