"That home run was one of the more impressive ones we've had this year," Bochy said Tuesday. "He's probably done as much improving as any of our prospects."
After recording just one hit in his first 13 at-bats, Susac has made strides of late, as he entered Tuesday hitting .304 (7-for-23) with two home runs and seven RBIs in eight games since. Combined with the acumen he's displayed behind the plate, he's making a case to be a viable option as the Giants' catcher of the future, if the team opts to spare Buster Posey wear and tear by shifting him to a corner-infield position.
"He's been right on the money throwing the ball, too," Bochy said. "He hasn't had an easy job back there, for the most part catching Timmy [Lincecum]. When you're a kid, that's not easy."
