Giants' Buster Posey, Casey McGehee out of the lineup Wednesday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/6/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey and third baseman Casey McGehee are out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Padres, the team announced.
It will be just Posey's second day off of the season after starting 18 straight games for San Francisco. Andrew Susac will fill in for Posey and bat seventh. McGehee is getting a second consecutive day off to clear his head after scuffling at the plate to start the year. Matt Duffy will get his second straight start.
The Giants are currently the favorites (-138) against San Diego.
Giants C Buster Posey stays hot with two-hit Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/2/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey has been hot since mid-April, but he's sizzling now. He hit safely in his eighth of nine games Saturday by slugging two hits, including a solo home run in the seventh to help beat the Angels.
Posey, who added a double, is batting .333 with two home runs during his most recent stretch. His .273 batting average is at its highest since April 12.
Giants' Matt Duffy, Andrew Susac in Friday's lineup
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) The Giants are going with Matt Duffy and Andrew Susac in Friday night's lineup for their game against the Angels.
Duffy has been alternating starts at second base with Joe Panik and has been tabbed for this one. Susac is getting the start at catcher, meaning Buster Posey will play first base.
Brandon Belt is not starting as Nori Aoki is in the lineup and playing in left field.
Giants C Buster Posey batters Kershaw in Tuesday win
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Several Giants managed to hit safely Tuesday against Dodgers stud left-hander Clayton Kershaw. But only one sent him down to defeat.
That was catcher Buster Posey, who drove in both runs in a taut victory. He singled in a run in the first and slammed a 407-foot solo homer to dead center in the fourth.
Posey continues to rake for a team that has struggled to score much of the year, though the blast was his first since April 12. He is batting .302 (13-for-43) since April 19 in raising his average from .219 to .263.
Giants 1B Brandon Belt to see more time in left field
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Giants first baseman Brandon Belt will see more time in left field as manager Bruce Bochy looks for a way to get Belt and catchers Buster Posey and Andrew Susac in the lineup at the same time, CSN Bay Area reports.
Belt drew a start in left field last Sunday for the first time since 2012, and it appears he'll see more work in the outfield moving forward. However, the impending return of right fielder Hunter Pence could also create a playing-time crunch between Belt, Susac and outfielder Nori Aoki.
|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.
