After his season-ending injury in May during a collision at home plate in a game between the Giants and Marlins, Lee County native Buster Posey broke his left fibula and tore three tendons in his ankle. Posey immediately went to the DL and onto crutches, then to a walking boot as he continued to support the team and attend games. Posey reached the next stage of his rehab recently, shedding the boot for regular tennis shoes with hopes of soon returning to some type of on-the-field practice.
