Hundley is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Hundley has sported a hot bat while starting the past three games, going 5-for-10 with a pair of doubles and two runs. He'll continue to serve as the Giants' primary catcher over the final two weeks of the season, but Aramis Garcia will relieve him behind the dish in the series finale.
Hundley is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Hundley will get the night off after starting the previous two games behind the dish, going 1-for-7 with a trio of strikeouts in those appearances. Aramis Garcia will start at catcher and hit eighth in his place.
Hundley is not starting Saturday against the Brewers. Hundley is hitting just .188 since the start of August. Aramis Garcia will start behind the plate Saturday.
Hundley is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Hundley is serving as the team's No. 1 catcher with Buster Posey (hip) done for the season, but he'll take a seat on the bench following four straight starts. Aramis Garcia is starting behind the plate.
Hundley is the club's No. 1 catcher following Buster Posey's season-ending surgery on his hip, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that Hundley has earned the right to start over Aramis Garcia, though Hundley has helped more behind the plate than in the batter's box (.237/.298/.420 in 225 plate appearances). Fantasy players in leagues with two-catcher lineups could find the veteran occasionally useful merely for the playing time, but the batting-average drawback might negate any positives from the compilation of mediocre-at-best counting stats.
