The San Francisco Giants have placed Buster Posey on the 7-day concussion injured list.

It was unclear what happened to Posey to cause the injury, but Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area notes that Posey took a few foul balls off the mask over the past week. Pavlovic also reminds us that Posey suffered a concussion in 2017.

Stephen Vogt will take over as the Giants’ primary catcher until Posey is back to full health, with Aramis Garcia being called up from Triple-A Sacramento to serve as the backup.
