Giants C Buster Posey sitting Saturday following rough night
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/29/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals. Posey got banged up behind the plate and at the plate on Friday, including getting hit by a pitch in his elbow.
He was likely going to have Saturday off anyway, with a day game following a night game. But his availability for late-inning duties remains in question. Manager Bruce Bochy did say he only expects Posey to miss one game, according to the San Francisco Chronicle
Andrew Susac will be the battery-mate for starter Ryan Vogelsong on Saturday.
Giants C Buster Posey receives rare day off Monday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/17/15) The return of catcher Andrew Susac to full health should allow Buster Posey to play more first base for the Giants. But not Monday - Posey is out of the lineup in St. Louis. It's his first day off since Aug. 6.
Posey is enjoying a sensational season. He boasts a slash line of .327/.385/.495 and his 78 RBI puts him on pace to set a career record in that department.
Giants' Buster Posey homers among three hits in win Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/2/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey--who served as the designated hitter on Saturday--went 3 for 5 with a double and a home run in the 9-7 win over the Rangers.
Posey hit a solo home run--his 15th of the year--off Cole Hamels in the seventh inning to cut the Rangers' lead to one run. Then, after the Rangers had tacked on a couple of runs, Posey added an RBI double in the eighth to once again bring the Giants within one. He score the tying run later in the inning, and the Giants won the game in 11 innings.
Posey has been scorching at the plate recently. Over his past eight games, Posey is batting a robust .438 with three doubles, a home run and five RBI. He continued his ownership over Hamels, as he is now 13 for 27 with two home runs against the left-hander.
Giants C Buster Posey returns to lineup
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/22/15) After a night off, Buster Posey slides back into the Giants lineup in his familiar clean-up role for Wednesday's series finale against the Padres.
Posey took his first game off since the All-Star break on Tuesday, and his replacement, Hector Sanchez, blasted a grand slam to help make up for Posey's absence.
Posey is hitting .396 with two homers and 10 RBIs in July, although he is just 1-for-10 against San Diego starter James Shields.
Giants catcher Buster Posey given day off Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/21/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey was held out of Tuesday's lineup at San Diego, reports CSN Bay Area.
Posey was replaced at catcher by Hector Sanchez, who will bat eighth. Posey is hitting .424 with three home runs and 16 RBI in his last 16 games.
|2014 Summary: Buster Posey led all catchers in Rotisserie value and Fantasy points per game, as he notched his second season with a .300-plus batting average, 20-plus homers and 80-plus RBI. A more aggressive approach led to positive results for the Giants' backstop, as his 13 percent strikeout per at-bat ratio was the lowest of his career.|
Playing time status: Posey was an elite Fantasy catcher, even though he ranked just 10th in games started at catcher. He started at first base with some regularity down the stretch and totaled 30 starts there over the course of the season. He could have a similar split of playing time in the field this season.
2015 Outlook: Even if Posey spends less time at first base in 2015, he should play enough to maintain his status as an elite catcher. With the defection of Carlos Santana and Joe Mauer from the corps of catcher-eligible hitters, only Jonathan Lucroy remains as a rival to be the top-ranked catcher heading into drafts and auctions.
