Giants' Buster Posey: Smacks four hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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' Buster Posey: Could resume catching Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Buster Posey: Could play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (head) feels great but will have to pass concussion tests before returning to the lineup Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The Giants are being cautious with their star catcher after he took a foul tip off the mask Friday and exited the game. The Giants appear optimistic that he'll pass the tests and return to action quickly.
