San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is resting Friday, Aug. 16, and manager Bruce Bochy suggested that he could rest his catcher more frequently down the stretch. "We've played some long games," Bochy said. "The first six weeks the pitching struggled a little bit and we had some long games there. It's a different game when you catch 125 or 130 pitches than 200 pitches. It takes a toll on you. It's not the same type of game." Bochy might rest Posey again Sunday, Aug. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Bochy rewarded Hector Sanchez with the start tonight after his game-winning pinch-hit homer yesterday. With the Giants out of contention, Posey might not be the only regular given more rest down the stretch. Keep that in mind as you set your daily and weekly rosters.

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.
