His power is above average but he does have a very good bat-speed which helps him. Posey will draw walks and he will hit for high batting average.

Montero and Santana are better offensively than Posey but what separates Posey from others is that he's a total package. Posey's defence is very good.
That's actually a good thing, considering the style the Giants play and AT&T Park definitely favors the gap hitters rather than home run hitters.

While I don't want the Giants to rush him up, they really need a consistent bat in the lineup. On top of bringing him up, if the Giants can pick up another bat on the market somewhere, I think we'll be in business.
