Giants’ Buster Posey will miss All-Star Game with hip ailment

Giants catcher Buster Posey was selected to his sixth All-Star Game but will sit out with right hip inflammation, which has taken a toll on his swing and run production.

Posey will receive a cortisone shot in his hip after Sunday’s game and rest during the four-day All-Star break, manager Bruce Bochy said. The Giants’ first game after the break is in Oakland.

Here’s what the 2018 All-Star teams should look like

“On Sunday, Major League Baseball will announce its All-Star teams, a combination of fan voting, player ballots and league picks. There will be questionable choices. There will be snubs. There will be 62 names, with two more to come from the Final Vote and even more via injury and pitching replacements. Those are the teams you’ll see July 17 in Washington, D.C.

These are the teams you should see.”
