Giants | Buster Posey out Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:13:57 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the New York Mets. C Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and hit eighth in the order against RHP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: Susac ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting just .197 against right-handed pitchers, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Giants | Buster Posey riding hitting streak

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:27:11 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey is in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak in which he's batting .410 (16-for-39) with four home runs, 16 RBI and a 1.262 OPS. In his career against New York Mets SP Jon Niese, who he faces Monday, July 6, Posey is 8-for-22 with a home run.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has a slash line of .262/.318/.443 with just two of his 14 home runs against left-handers this year. However, he's still one of the safest catcher plays, and his history against Niese is encouraging.

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 18:43:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been an RBI machine lately, driving in 16 over his last nine games. If you want to pay up for an elite catcher at FantasyScore, Posey is the player to invest in.

Giants | Buster Posey back in there

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:44:53 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey (head) is in the lineup Thursday, July 2, at first base a day after exiting from a foul ball off his catcher's mask.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is 11-for-22 with a homer and nine RBI the last seven days, but he faces off against Jose Fernandez. The matchup isn't the greatest, but it is Fernandez's first start since Tommy John surgery. Posey is a solid option on FantasyScore.

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.

Gaints | Buster Posey has a big night

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:00:21 -0700

San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a two runs, a double, a home run and a RBI during the Giants' 5-3 loss to the Miami Marlins Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Posey ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is a top-tier catcher in all fantasy formats, and he has continued his strong work at the plate this season. For the year, he has 39 runs, 11 home runs, 53 RBI and a .300/.376/.472 slash line. He capped off June with 26 RBI and a .885 OPS, too. At FantasyScore, Posey is worth targeting whenever he doesn't have a daunting pitching matchup.

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 | Brandon Belt in lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:09:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants 1B Brandon Belt is in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Sunday, June 28, batting fifth. C/1B Buster Posey, who started the last two games at first base, will start behind the plate and hit cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Belt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is hitting .313 against Rockies pitching this season and is 2-for-7 (.286) in his career against Kendrick. However, his .195 average during the month of June may be a reason to avoid using him in FantasyScore today. Posey ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is a career .500 hitter against Kendrick in 12 at-bats.

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.
