Giants | Buster Posey back in lineup

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 16:38:41 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) hasn't been exceptional against southpaws this year, going 16-for-64 (.250) with just two of his 14 home runs. However, he's had success against Hamels in his career, with nine hits in 21 at-bats (.429), including a home run and five RBI. Posey is typically one of the safest catching plays in daily games, and selecting him could work to your advantage even more tonight if others shy away because of the matchup.
