Giants | Buster Posey out Saturday

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 16:17:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not starting Saturday, Sept. 5, against the Colorado Rockies. Posey's replacement is C Hector Sanchez, who will bat seventh against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Giants said they might rest some starters periodically, it's a surprise to see Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) seated with a .520 batting average in the past week. That's a risk for a hot hitter to sit down, even for a day.

Giants | Brandon Belt out vs. Rockies

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 15:30:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not in the lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Thursday, Sept. 3. C Buster Posey is moving to first base, allowing C Hector Sanchez to start behind the plate and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is easily the highest-priced catcher on FantasyScore tonight, but it's worth paying up for him against a hittable lefty in the majors' best hitting parks. Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) may not be a bad pick, either, as salary cap relief.

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.

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.

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.

Giants | Brandon Belt sitting against lefty

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 15:15:24 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Tyler Matzek Wednesday, April 15. C Buster Posey is starting at first base and hitting cleanup, while C Hector Sanchez is catching and hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is hitting just .125 this year after dealing with a groin injury in the early going. Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) had the day off yesterday and should be considered a strong catching option at FantasyScore tonight.

Giants | Brandon Belt remains out

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 15:45:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt (groin) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 10. C Buster Posey is starting at first and hitting fourth, while C Hector Sanchez is behind the plate and hitting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) may not be back in the lineup until next week, so play it safe and avoid him at FantasyScore. Posey ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), as always, is one of the safer catcher options on a daily basis.
