      Giants' Buster Posey: Starting Sunday

      Buster Posey (back) is starting at catcher and batting cleanup Sunday against the Angels, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.As expected, Posey is starting behind the plate after missing Saturday's game with back stiffness. The backstop is just 3-for-27 over the team's past three series, so hopefully Saturday's day off will help him reset his focus at the plate.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Lone bright spot in loss

      Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 7-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.The All-Star catcher cranked a two-run shot that chased Robbie Ray in the fifth inning of what was a close game at the time. The loss brought the San Francisco Giants back under .500 on the season, but Posey's production (.389/.439/.611 in 41 plate appearances) is not to blame. The 31-year-old has also chipped in a pair of steals this year to boost his fantasy value after notching six in each of the previous two campaigns.

      Giants' Buster Posey: Two hits in Saturday loss

      Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with a double in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Dodgers.The San Francisco Giants' offense has been in a funk to start the season, with Joe Panik's solo shots accounting for their only two runs through three games, but Posey has still managed to reach base four times in 11 plate appearances. The veteran catcher is hitting fourth behind Andrew McCutchen, and once his teammates begin to break out, Posey will be able to collect some counting stats.
