Giants Vs. D-backs Lineups: Buster Posey Hitting Third in Return From IL

After missing six games due to a concussion, Giants catcher Buster Posey is back in the lineup on Friday night as the Giants get set to open a series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks.

Posey went on the seven-day concussion list on May 9. In order to make room for Posey on the 25-man roster, Aramis Garcia was optioned back to Triple-A Sacramento.

The other big news is that manager Bruce Bochy has flipped rookie Steven Duggar to center field and Kevin Pillar to right field.

Here are the full lineups for the series-opener between the Giants and D-backs, which you can watch on NBC Bay Area at 6:40 p.m. PT and streaming on the MyTeams app. Pregame coverage begins at 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Bay Area.
