SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (WCTV/RW) -- Although Buster Posey is situated to bat second on Monday against the Chicago Cubs, the San Francisco catcher, and former Seminole, will be unavailable for the upcoming All-Star Game.

Posey is expected to receive an injection during the break to help his right hip inflammation.

He's expected to battle through the issue during the final two series of the first half, but manager Bruce Bochy believes Posey's power has been impacted by the issue, per Kerry Crowly of the San Jose Mercury News.

Posey is slashing .285/.367/.412 this year with five home runs and 27 RBI in 74 games. Posey was named to his sixth All Star Game, and garnered his fourth-straight nomination this year.
