Giants | Buster Posey returns to lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:27:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (elbow) is back in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Sunday, Aug. 30, batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) did not play because of minor elbow soreness Saturday, Aug. 29, but FantasyScore owners should feel free to insert him into their lineups Sunday. He is 4-for-12 against Garcia in his career with a double and an RBI.

Giants | Buster Posey out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:10:35 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Lance Lynn Saturday, Aug. 29. C Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) from all daily fantasy lineups. Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting just .150 (6-for-40) since July 1, and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon.

Giants | Brandon Belt not starting Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 13:55:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not starting Sunday, Aug. 23, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Buster Posey is at first base and C Andrew Susac is catching, and Posey is batting third against Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) appears to be the victim of a lefty vs. lefty matchup in this game, as he hits .237-4-14 against left-handed pitching. Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) hits .455 against Liriano, so he should definitely be in your FantasyScore lineup if you need a catcher.

Giants | Buster Posey resting Monday

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:35:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. C Andrew Susac is starting and hitting sixth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Susac's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) first start since being activated from the DL today. It's not an easy matchup in his first game back, either, so you should look to ignore him in daily leagues.

Giants | Buster Posey sitting against Chicago

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 13:34:44 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 6. C Hector Sanchez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Posey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. For the year, Posey has been as advertised with 56 runs, 16 home runs, 75 RBI and an elite .332/.391/.508 slash line. FantasyScore players should view Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief. After all, over the past two seasons, Sanchez owns a .192/.225/.303 slash line through 222 plate appearances.

Giants | Buster Posey in a hot stretch

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:27:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is currently riding a seven-game hitting streak, but he's also hitting .406 with seven home runs and 39 RBI in his last 35 games while striking out just nine times.

Fantasy Tip: Be sure to check if Posey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is in the lineup on Thursday. If he's in there, it's worth paying up for the stud catcher on a day when many other catching regulars are being rested. The Giants as a team are also much better on the road in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) won't be worth looking at on FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey taking a break

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:07:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Hector Sanchez is behind the dish and is hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .194 average (7-for-36) with a home run and five RBI on the season as a backup catcher, and he's a desperation sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is hitting .328 for the year and is on pace for 111 RBI. If you are going to pay up for a catcher at FantasyScore, make sure it is Posey.

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:05:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Tuesday, July 21. C Hector Sanchez will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.
