Buster Posey, the San Francisco Giants catcher and 2012 National League MVP, has sold a condominium in Scottsdale, Ariz., for $195,000.
Located 20 minutes north of Scottsdale Stadium, the Giants’ Cactus League facility, the unit includes a living room with fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,254 square feet. A master suite with a walk-in closet and a patio overlooking a greenbelt are among the features.
A two-time All Star, Posey is currently in the second year of a nine-year, $167-million extension he signed in March 2013. The 27-year-old has hit .286 with 15 home runs in 119 games this season.
Public records show that Posey, who received a $6.2-million bonus to sign with the Giants in 2008, paid $180,000 for the condo in October 2009. He had asked as much as $205,000 for the property, which came to market in June 2014.
Terry Brock of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent. Andrea Regnier of HomeSmart represented the buyer in the sale.
Earlier this summer, San Francisco pitcher Tim Lincecum listed his Paradise Valley, Ariz., for sale at just shy of $4 million. Previously owned by former Pittsburgh Pirates first baseman Kevin Young, the 11,028-square-foot property counts an indoor sports court with a retractable batting cage among its features.
