Giants' Buster Posey: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (hamstring) is starting Friday's game against the Padres, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Posey was removed from Wednesday's loss to the Rockies due to right hamstring tightness. However, he was able to recover during Thursday's scheduled off day, and he'll start behind the dish and bat third Friday.

Giants' Buster Posey: Managing tight hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey was removed from Wednesday's loss to the Rockies with tightness in his right hamstring, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 34-year-old was lifted during the seventh inning after the injury surfaced while running the bases. Posey will have Thursday's scheduled off day to recover before Friday's series opener versus the Padres.

Giants' Buster Posey: Exits early Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey left Wednesday's game against the Rockies in the seventh inning, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Neither Posey nor the Giants gave any indication of the reason for his departure, but it's presumably injury-related given the game's close score. Curt Casali replaced Posey at catcher.

Giants' Buster Posey: Heads to bench for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader at Colorado, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Posey went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two additional runs scored during the matinee, and he'll unsurprisingly take a seat for Game 2. Curt Casali will start behind the plate in the nightcap for the Giants.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey is not in the lineup Sunday at San Diego, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Posey went 3-for-7 with a solo home run over the first two games of the series, and it's not a surprise he'll take a seat for the finale Sunday afternoon. Curt Casali will start at catcher and bat eighth for San Francisco.

Giants' Buster Posey: Goes deep Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a loss to the Padres on Friday.

Posey took Yu Darvish deep with a solo shot in the first inning, accounting for the only run the hurler gave up in the contest. The backstop also scored the only other run of the game for the Giants, crossing the plate on a double-play groundout in the eighth. Posey has had a resurgent campaign in 2021 after sitting out all of last season, slashing .361/.418/.705 with six homers and nine RBI.

Giants' Buster Posey: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Rockies, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

He has been swinging a scorching bat, hitting .389 with three home runs and five strikeouts over 36 at-bats in his last 10 games. Curt Casali will start behind the dish and hit eighth.

Giants' Buster Posey: Another three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 3-for-5 with a double and one RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Posey recorded his second consecutive multi-hit game, which has included three extra-base hits. Aside from missing a few games with an elbow injury, he has hit very well to begin the campaign by maintaining a .351/.413/.667 line across 63 plate appearances.

Giants' Buster Posey: Falls triple short of cycle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double, three RBI and three runs scored in a 12-0 blowout win over the Rockies on Monday.

Posey turned back the clock in Monday's trouncing of the Rockies with his first four-hit performance since Aug. 10, 2018. He began his night with an RBI double in the first and put his stamp on the game with a two-run homer in the sixth that extended the Giants' lead to 12-0. He also added in two singles, coming just a triple short of hitting for the cycle. The 34-year-old upped his slash line to .327/.397/.694 with five home runs and 12 runs scored but only seven RBI to his name. It's worth noting that he hit just 12 home runs in the past two seasons combined, so his resurgence in the power department has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy managers.

Giants' Buster Posey: Resting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

Posey will be getting a routine breather after starting behind the plate in four of the Giants' last five games. Curt Casali will form a battery with Logan Webb in the series finale.

Giants' Buster Posey: Has two HR night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and three runs scored in Tuesday's 10-7 win over the Phillies.

Posey made a big splash in his return to the lineup by crushing a pair of solo home runs for the fourth multi-homer game of his career. The 34-year-old led off the fifth by taking the first pitch he saw deep to left-center to get the Giants' first run on the board. He came back up to lead off the sixth and hit a moonshot to left to close their deficit to two. Posey raised his slash line to .316/.381/.632 and sits at four home runs, four RBI and eight runs scored.

Giants' Buster Posey: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (elbow) is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, catching and batting sixth, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Posey missed a pair of games while dealing with an elbow injury, but the issue evidently wasn't a particularly serious one. He'll reclaim his starting spot Tuesday and will look to build on his solid .265/.342/.441 slash line.

Giants' Buster Posey: Could appear off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (elbow) is feeling better Monday and could appear off the bench against the Phillies, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Elbow inflammation will keep Posey on the bench for the second straight game, but it looks as though he could avoid a trip to the injured list. Curt Casali remains the starter behind the plate in his absence.

April 19, 2021 03:52 PM
Giants' Buster Posey: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (elbow) isn't starting Monday's game against the Phillies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Posey will retreat to the bench for a second consecutive game as he continues to deal with left elbow inflammation. It's not yet clear whether Posey could require a stint on the injured list, but Curt Casali will take over behind the dish and bat eighth Monday.

April 18, 2021 07:52 PM
Giants' Buster Posey: Still dealing with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey (elbow) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

According to Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com, the Giants continue to view Posey as day-to-day while he contends with left elbow inflammation. Posey's initial X-rays on his elbow returned negative, but he could be a candidate for the injured list if he doesn't show meaningful improvement within the next few days. Curt Casali will start behind the dish Sunday, but 2018 No. 1 overall pick Joey Bart could be called up from the alternate site to take over as the Giants' top catcher if Posey requires an IL stint.

Giants' Buster Posey: Dealing with bruised elbow
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey suffered a left elbow contusion during Saturday's loss to the Marlins and is considered day-to-day, Mark W. Sanchez of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

The 34-year-old suffered the injury when he was hit by a pitch and initially remained in the contest, but he was eventually replaced by Curt Casali. Posey went 1-for-2 with a run scored prior to exiting and may take the day off Sunday, especially since it's a day game.

Posey had started each of the last two games and went 2-for-7 with a run and three strikeouts. Curt Casali will serve as the starting catcher for Wednesday's series finale, batting eighth.

April 11, 2021 03:36 PM

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Giants' Buster Posey: On base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Posey went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 3-1 win over the Rockies.

The 34-year-old Posey has recorded a hit in all five games he's played, but Friday was his first multi-hit effort. The catcher has a .333/.400/.667 slash line with two homers, two RBI and three runs scored in 20 plate appearances.
