Giants' Buster Posey: Expected to catch fewer games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that he hopes to rest Posey more this season, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fatigue seemed to come into play for Posey late last year (.651 OPS in September), and Bochy seems intent on having Posey catch fewer games this season with the hope that he will be fresher for the stretch run. Even with a possible dip in playing time, he still projects as one of the top fantasy catchers in 2017. Posey's home run total declined again last season, but his hard-hit rate was the best of his career and his hitting skills seem to be firmly intact as he enters his age-30 season.

Giants' Buster Posey: Headlines Team USA roster in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Posey will play for the United States in this year's World Baseball Classic, CBS Sports reports.

With nothing to prove in spring training, Posey will represent his country and headline a stacked United States squad. The former MVP is still just 29 years old, so he should have the endurance to not be affected negatively by participating in the tournament. Posey remains a top fantasy catcher heading into the regular season.

Giants' Buster Posey: Drives in three Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Sunday's wild card-clinching win over the Dodgers.

He's coming off a weak .238/.299/.352 September performance, but Posey might be finding his batting stroke again just at the right time as the Giants head into the postseason. Posey's .288/.362/.434 slash line on the year is a little below his usual standards, but he did score a career-high 82 runs in 2016 to go along with 14 home runs and 80 RBI.

Giants' Buster Posey: Smacks 14th homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Posey went 1-for-3 with two walks, a homer, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies.

Posey is doing his best to salvage what is considered a "down" year for him, collecting seven RBI over his last four games. While his numbers are down across the board, his .288 average, 14 home runs and 75 RBI are well-rounded numbers from the catcher position.

Giants' Buster Posey: Knocks in team's only runs Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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. Such 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. The two RBI brought Posey's total to 70 on the season, a mark he has reached in five straight years. With the Giants' playoff hopes on the line, look for the All-Star catcher to be the centerpiece of the lineup for the team's remaining eight games.
