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.

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.

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 Hector Sanchez will start behind the plate and hit ninth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Texas Rangers and LHP Cole Hamels. C Buster Posey will hit fourth in the order and serve as the designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) won't be worth looking at on FantasyScore.
