Giants | Buster Posey not starting

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 16:14:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Friday, June 24. C Trevor Brown will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Brown is hitting .308 with two doubles and one RBI over the last seven days. He is not a great fantasy option but should have value in two-catcher leagues.

Giants | Buster Posey says he's fine

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 05:48:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (hamstring) grabbed his right hamstring while running up the first-base line on a double-play ball Monday, June 20, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Posey said he was fine after the game.

Fantasy Tip: Chances are Posey will be just fine, but you never know. Keep an eye on his health in the next game, and if he shows signs of more hamstring issues then you may want to be cautious. Otherwise, no worries.

Giants | Trevor Brown catching Saturday

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:15:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Trevor Brown is batting eighth and starting behind the plate versus Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, June 18. C Buster Posey will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants are expected to use Brown behind the plate and Posey at DH again Sunday, as a way of keeping the latter's bat in the lineup. Brown is hitting just .213 this year but has four home runs and 10 RBI in 75 at-bats, making him a possible source of productive cap relief for daily fantasy lineups this afternoon.

Giants | Buster Posey expected to be used as DH

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 17:24:50 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is expected to serve as the designated hitter during the final two games of this weekend's series versus the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Thanks to an interleague series in an American League stadium, the Giants will be able to keep Posey's bat in the lineup without exposing him to the rigors of catching. He should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy formats. Trevor Brown will start behind the plate Saturday, June 18, and Sunday, June 19, and should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy games.

Giants | Buster Posey keeps up recent tear

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:52:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants C/1B Buster Posey recorded his third straight multi-hit game Wednesday, June 15, against the Milwaukee Brewers. The former NL MVP went 2-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for the Brewers, they ran into a red-hot Posey, as the 29-year-old went 8-for-12 in the three-game series. In the process, Posey brought his average up from .251 to .274, so hopefully this is an early indication of a big run ahead. He's still a must-start option every time he's in the lineup no matter what.

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:21:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (thumb) went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in his return to the lineup on Friday, June 10. Posey hadn't played since June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Posey got the better of Clayton Kershaw with a game-tying double in the sixth and looks ready to be returned to your starting lineup.

Giants | Buster Posey back in the lineup

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 16:05:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (thumb) is starting behind the plate and batting fourth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Posey is in a class of his own atop the catcher rankings, but his thumb injury has potential to linger, and he faces Kershaw Friday. If you've got an alternative, it isn't out of the question to keep Posey benched Friday.

Giants | Buster Posey recieved cortisone shot

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:06:59 -0700

San Francisco Giants C/1B Buster Posey (thumb) received a cortisone shot in his right thumb during the series against the St. Louis Cardinals that ended Sunday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: The news explains why Posey missed three games, but given the nature of the injury, it could linger and limit Posey's upside going forward. Still, even at less than full health, Posey is likely the best backstop option in fantasy. Stay tuned for further updates and monitor Posey's progress in the near future.

Giants | Buster Posey remains out

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:22:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants C/1B Buster Posey (thumb) remains out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. C Trevor Brown is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth versus Boston Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Posey has a thumb issue and is still being considered day-to-day. Brown, meanwhile, has been decent as his backup this season, but owners can do far better in daily games with their low-priced options. The 24-year-old is hitting just .222 against left-handed pitching, making it unlikely he would do any significant damage against a top southpaw like Price.

Giants | Buster Posey unlikely to play on Wednesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 22:47:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (thumb) has missed the first two games of the team's series against the Boston Red Sox and is unlikely to play in the finale on Wednesday, June 8. Posey is dealing with an irritated nerve in his right thumb.

Fantasy Tip: The logic is sound. By giving Posey Wednesday off, manager Bruce Bochy will be getting his star backstop, who hasn't played since Saturday, five days off in a row to rest his injury. Keep an eye on the lineup sheet tomorrow. If Posey is back, stick him in your lineup. Otherwise, expect him back on Friday.
