Giants | Andrew Susac catching

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:04:01 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac is behind the plate and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez Thursday, July 2. C Buster Posey is starting at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is an intriguing sleeper catcher option on FantasyScore some of the time, especially since he receives semi-regular playing time with Posey moving to first often. However, he's one to avoid against former National League Rookie of the Year Fernandez, even though it's his first start in over a year due to injury.

Giants | Buster Posey exits game

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:16:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (head) took a foul ball off his mask against the Miami Marlins Wednesday, July 1, in the second inning, but didn't leave the game until the fifth inning. He was replaced by C Andrew Susac.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), who hit .342 in 38 at-bats last month, would serve as the team's primary catcher if Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is forced to miss an extended amount of playing time. Check back for further updates on Posey's status.

Giants | Andrew Susac behind the plate

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:17:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac is catching and hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos Tuesday, June 30. C Buster Posey is at first base and 1B Brandon Belt moves to left field.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) can help save some cap space at catcher and could be a profitable sleeper play against Latos, who has struggled at home this year. Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is a strong play and has three home runs in 18 career at-bats against Latos. Belt ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is another good option with Latos allowing a slash line of .311/.352/.496 against left-handed hitters in 2015.

Giants | Buster Posey playing first Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:35:45 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is making his second consecutive start at first base Saturday, June 27, against the Colorado Rockies. C Andrew Susac is once again starting behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is batting .367 during the month of June and .455 over the past week, so it's easy to see why the Giants want to keep his bat in the lineup. He batted seventh Friday and has been moved up to the No. 5 spot this afternoon. Posey ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting .286 with three homers and 21 RBIs this month and remains a high-end catcher in all fantasy formats.

Giants | Andrew Susac starting vs. Rockies

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:08:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Andrew Susac is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been receiving a few more starts due to the San Francisco's injuries. Desperate owners in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL only leagues could take a speculative flier on his fleeting value boost due to the additional playing time. After all, he does have a career .275/.345/.444 slash line over 177 plate appearances. He is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players when in the lineup, too.

Giants | Nori Aoki out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 14:22:48 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21. OF Justin Maxwell is in the lineup and batting sixth. Aoki's injury also has moved 1B Brandon Belt to left field and C Buster Posey to first base. C Andrew Susac is catching.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be removed from your lineup until his ankle has healed. Maxwell ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit a two-run homer Saturday so he has demonstrated some pop and could make a cheaper replacement for your lineup.

Giants | Buster Posey out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 13:07:28 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 14, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. C Andrew Susac is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has played the past 12 games so manager Bruce Bochy is giving him a day off. Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) carries no fantasy value at this time.

Giants | Brandon Belt sitting against lefty

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:56:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Wednesday, June 3. C Buster Posey will start at first base and hit cleanup, while C Andrew Susac starts behind the dish and is hitting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano.

Fantasy Tip: On a day with many early games and many regular catchers resting, it makes sense to pay up for the safety of Posey ($5,200, 10.4% of cap). Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has just 10 hits in 47 at-bats (.213) and is a very weak option.

Giants | Buster Posey resting

Sat, 30 May 2015 16:11:12 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is out of the lineup Saturday, May 30, with C Andrew Susac spelling him.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting just .227 and isn't worth the start on FantasyScore.
