MLB trade deadline:

Posey remains out of Giants lineup

The SportsXchange

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey was out of the lineup Saturday for the third straight game with nerve irritation in his lower back.

Hector Sanchez got the start against the St. Louis Cardinals, batting fifth in the lineup.

Posey also missed two other games earlier in the month due to the same injury. He is off to a slow start on offense, hitting just .254 with seven homers and 25 RBIs.
