San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey announced Friday he will not play in the upcoming MLB season.

Posey cited family reasons for deciding not to play in the shortened season.

“The Poseys are adopting twins who were born prematurely last week,” NBC Sports Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic tweeted. “That’s why he is opting out of the season. ‘We feel like this is the best decision,’ Posey said.”

Buster Posey: “From a baseball standpoint it was a tough decision, from a family standpoint and feeling like I’m making a decision to protect our children, I feel like it was relatively easy.”
