Giants | Buster Posey will be DH

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:09:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey will serve as the designated hitter against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 24. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Posey is receiving a day off from playing in the field but will see his normal at-bats and should be starting in all leagues. Brown has recorded five hits and two RBI over the last three games and should be an attractive option in two-catcher leagues.

Giants | Buster Posey won't miss game

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:39:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) will start at catcher and bat fourth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Saturday, July 23. Posey left the game Friday, July 22, after fouling a ball off his left foot, but X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Posey hasn't recorded a hit in four career at-bats against Nova, but he's still one of the most consistent catching plays night in and night out. It remains to be seen if he'll be hampered by the foot ailment, but he should still be started in seasonal leagues.

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) exited against the New York Yankees Friday, July 22, after fouling a ball of his left foot. X-rays were negative and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Trevor Brown will likely see most of the start for as long as Posey is out, and Brown could be a useful sleeper in DFS formats.

Giants | Trevor Brown draws into lineup

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 11:50:39 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Trevor Brown is catching and hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Drew Pomeranz Wednesday, July 20. C Buster Posey is serving as the designated hitter in an American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Brown faces a tough matchup in Pomeranz but is hitting at Fenway Park. Brown has some occasional power with four dingers and 13 RBI, but he's nothing more than a low-end catcher flier in daily games. Posey is an elite backstop that should be started regularly.

Giants | Angel Pagan, Buster Posey have big nights

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 22:48:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Angel Pagan and 1B-C Buster Posey each went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs Saturday, July 16, against the San Diego Padres. Posey also tacked on his 20th double of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The homer was Pagan's fifth of the season, so the power isn't a regular happening. However, he remains a decent play across most NL fantasy formats. Posey is a must-have in all formats and DFS play.

C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting eight. C Buster Posey will start at first base, while 1B Brandon Belt will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Tejada, Green, Williamson and Brown are not strong fantasy options and owners should be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Buster Posey sitting vs. Arizona

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:46:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. C Trevor Brown is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Shelby Miller Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Posey is having a down year in comparison to past campaigns, but he's still an elite option at the catcher position. A big second half could be in store, too. Brown has shown some flashes through 103 plate appearances with 12 runs, four home runs, 11 RBI and a .713 OPS. He's a potential flier in daily contests.

Giants | Buster Posey survives injury scare

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 05:23:17 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (foot) was hit on the outside of his left foot by a bunted foul ball in the fifth inning Sunday, June 26, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Posey was checked by head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner but remained in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Posey in the next couple contests. This should not be a factor but sometimes it takes a bit for complications to arise. However, it's a pretty safe bet this isn't a serious problem.
