    • Giants' Buster Posey: Returns to lineup Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey is back in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News Group reports. Posey had a maintenance day Saturday, but will return to action for San Francisco's series finale against Atlanta. Posey has been going on a tear at the plate recently, having gone 8-for-17 (.471) over his last five games.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Gets day off Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey is not in the lineup Sunday against the Mets. Posey's day off was likely scheduled ahead of time, as Sunday day games generally result in a lot of regular days off for catchers. It came at a good time too, with Posey going 0-for-8 at the plate over the last couple days. Trevor Brown will replace him in the lineup Sunday, batting eighth, but Posey should return behind the dish Tuesday when the Giants open their next series in Los Angeles.

    • Posey went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to Pittsburgh. The few days off Posey received to rest his back have apparently paid off as the slugger has collected five hits and three RBI in two games since his return. Back injuries tend to linger, but it appears the All-Star backstop is currently healthy with his appearance behind the dish in a day game following a night game.

    • Posey (back) returned to the lineup Tuesday, going 2-for-4 with a double, two batted in and a run scored in the 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh. Posey had missed the Giants' last three games with a minor back ailment. After the game he said that his back only bothers him when he is running, but not swinging or catching and that he plans to be in Wednesday's lineup despite the early start time, according to Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area. Posey has never been nimble on the basepaths, so as long as he can swing it like he did Tuesday, then he should be fine going forward.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Returns to lineup Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey (back) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates. Back-to-back absences Sunday and Monday led to some unease among Posey's fantasy owners, but Posey has been cleared to return Tuesday and there has nothing to suggest he will be limited moving forward. Posey hasn't hit a home run in a month but he's not forcing the issue at the plate, drawing nine walks while striking out seven times so far in August.
