    • Posey went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's loss to the Padres. Posey took a fastball that was out of the strike zone and hammered it to left center, narrowly missing a home run and driving in two in the process. You've heard this before, but that ball would have been a home run in almost any other ballpark. The cool San Diego night kept the ball in the park for what could have been Posey's 14th homer of the season. So is life batting in the NL West. This wasn't the first, and will not be the last time a hitter is robbed of a home run by Petco Park, AT&T Park or Dodger Stadium. With the Giants' playoff hopes on the line, look for Posey to be the centerpiece of the lineup for the team's remaining eight games.

    • Posey went 3-for-4 with a homer, two runs and four RBI in Friday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals. Posey paced San Francisco's victory with a trio of hits, including his 13th homer of the season -- a two-run shot off Jaime Garcia in the fourth. The long ball was his first since July 16, snapping a 37-game homerless streak for the All-Star backstop. Despite his recent power outage, Posey has been swinging the bat well over the past couple weeks, batting .340/.358/.400 in his last 11 games. Posey's collected seven hits in his past two contests to lift his season line up to .294/.367/.449.

    • Posey went 4-for-5 with a double and a run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals. The Giants scored six runs, and yet Posey's four hits out of the three-hole didn't result in many counting stats. This has been a bit of an underwhelming season the 29-year-old's standards, as his current .290 average and .804 OPS are five-year lows. He's still been a productive fantasy backstop, but owners who spent early picks on Posey can't be happy with his drop-offs in average and power. That said, Posey may simply be suffering from bad BABIP and HR/FB luck; he remains one of the top few fantasy catchers, mostly thanks to leading the position in runs scored with 76.

    • Posey went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Posey bounced back after going 0-for-6 in Friday's extra-inning win over these same Diamondbacks. It is hard to complain about a .285/.361/.434 slash line from a catcher, but the All-Star has seen his numbers dip across the board this season. While the homers (12) and RBI (63) are not where his owners would like them to be, Posey has already surpassed last year's totals in doubles (30), triples (two) and stolen bases (six).

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Not in Monday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey is not in the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports. Posey will get the day of after struggling mightily in the Giants' four-game series against the Cubs, in which he went just 1-of-16 at the plate. The Giants will go with Trevor Brown behind the plate Monday.
