San Francisco catcher Buster Posey will miss the All-Star game because of lingering inflammation in his right hip.
Manager Bruce Bochy made the announcement Monday before a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs. Posey is scheduled to have an injection Sunday.
Posey began Monday batting .285 with five homers and 27 RBIs in 74 games. Bochy believes the hip has affected Posey’s power.
