Giants | Buster Posey to play 1B less often

San Francisco Giants C/1B Buster Posey will see less time at first base, according to manager Bruce Bochy, at least in part because of 1B Brandon Belt's recent surge at the plate. Posey is 11-for-66 (.167) in his last 20 games. "His swing is fine," Bochy said of Posey.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the skipper is conscious of the abuse that Posey endures as a catcher and would like to get him those full days of rest, at least in part for the benefit of his best player's offense. It can't hurt. This could be good news for Belt owners, assuming that the left-handed hitter, and not Brett Pill, will receive more opportunities against southpaws.
