PoseyBuster Posey can now put weight on his surgically-repaired left ankle, which was injured in a devastating incident earlier this season. The catcher is still using a crutch, but should be able to ditch it by Sunday or Monday, manager Bruce Bochy told MLB.com.

"He's doing well. He's real close to being able to put all his weight on his leg," Bochy said. "He's got one crutch and can put partial weight on it, but he's coming along fine.

"He seems to be in a great frame of mind with the progress that he's making," Bochy continued. "I know he'll be glad to get rid of that crutch. But he's doing well. He's doing real well. It's good to see him here and making the progress that he's making."

Posey, who has been working out, has watched the Giants stumble in recent days, losing their grip on the division lead in the NL West, battling with Arizona. Out for the year, Posey will return in spring training of 2012.
