    • Giants' Buster Posey: Sitting Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey is not starting Sunday against Cincinnati, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey has brought his average up closer to his career level by hitting .333 over his last 17 games, but he has just five homers on the season and none since June 19. Nick Hundley will start behind the plate Sunday.

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

      Posey is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey has six hits over the last two games but receives a breather for the series finale. The veteran catcher should return to the lineup Monday at Los Angeles, as Nick Hundley starts behind the plate Sunday.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Smacks four hits in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey went 4-for-5 with a run and three RBI to help the Giants to a 13-10 win over the Pirates on Friday. Posey snapped out of an 0-for-11 stretch with this four-hit performance that brought his slash line to .296/.369/.403 through 362 at-bats. He only has five homers, so he doesn't provide the power he used to, but Posey remains a solid option at a shallow offensive position thanks to his contact-heavy ways and excellent on-base percentage.

    • Giants' Buster Posey: Back behind dish Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Posey is starting at catcher and hitting second Monday against the Astros, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey is back behind the dish for the first time since taking a foul ball to the mask during Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks. He was cleared of any concussion symptoms and was able to return to action at first base Sunday, going 1-for-3 with a walk, so the veteran backstop should be safely deployed by fantasy owners heading into the week. The 31-year-old Posey is hitting .298/.372/.410 with five homers and three stolen bases across 92 games this season.

    • Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Posey could return behind the plate for Monday's series opener against the Astros, the Associated Press reports. Posey was removed from Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks in the third inning after taking a foul ball to the mask. The Giants cleared Posey of any concussion symptoms, but he was still held out of the lineup Saturday before returning to action Sunday at first base. Posey, who went 1-for-3 with a walk in the Giants' 3-2 win, endured no complications in his move back into the starting nine and looks to be a safe lineup choice for fantasy owners this week.
