Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Susac is the front-runner to back up Buster Posey in 2015, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports. "It's going to be up to [Hector Sanchez] to try and get that back," Bochy said.
Concussion issues plagued Sanchez's second half, and the 24-year-old Susac performed admirably in his absence, batting .273/.326/.466 with three homers and 19 RBI in 35 games. It looks like Susac will head into spring training as the No. 2 option behind the dish, but Bochy's comments suggest the door is open for Sanchez to regain the backup job eventually.
