With news of Buster Posey potentially needing hip surgery before season's end, Hundley could take over as the Giants' starting catcher down the stretch.

Posey has been dealing with an nagging hip injury for a good portion of the season, and the club acknowledged that surgery will be necessary. The All-Star catcher will reportedly start Wednesday, so the procedure doesn't appear imminent, but the Giants' withering playoff hopes could result in the team shutting the catcher down before season's end. If that holds true, Hundley would figure to take over as the primary option behind the dish, which would boost his value in two-catcher formats. He's slashing .242/.291/.442 with nine homers in 202 plate appearances this season.
