Giants' Buster Posey out of lineup Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Brewers.
With Posey getting a breather, Hunter Pence is in the cleanup role. It's Posey's second day off in the team's last four games after making 10 straight starts. Andrew Susac will start behind the plate and bat eighth on Monday.
The Giants are underdogs (+115) in Milwaukee, per VegasInsider.com.
Giants C Buster Posey extends hit streak to 16 games
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/24/15) There weren't many bright spots in the Giants' 11-2 loss to the Rockies on Sunday, but one was that catcher Buster Posey extended his hitting streak to 16 games.
Posey waited until the ninth inning to keep his streak alive, singling to right field to finish 1-for-3 on the evening. Posey's career-high hit streak remains 21 games, which he accomplished in 2010.
The catcher is hitting .310/.382/.468 on the season.
Giants' Brandon Crawford sits, Joaquin Arias in at shortstop
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Shorstop Brandon Crawford is sitting out of Sunday's series-finale against the Rockies.
Crawford rested on Thursday and appears to be doing the same for this game as well. In his place at shortstop will be Joaquin Arias, who is penciled in to bat eighth.
Buster Posey and Nori Aoki are in the lineup after playing one game of Saturday's doubleheader.
Giants C Buster Posey out of lineup against Rockies
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Giants catcher Buster Posey will not start against the Rockies on Saturday in their first game of a doubleheader, despite his absolute tear at the plate during his last 13 games.
Posey, who is hitting .388/.464/.612 with three home runs and 13 RBI in his last 13 outings, will sit while Andrew Susac makes his 10th start of the season.
Giants' Buster Posey slugs seventh homer Wednesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Giants first baseman Buster Posey went 3 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-0 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Posey scored the first run of the game on a sixth-inning single, then came back one inning later to blast a two-run homer to extend his team's lead to four runs. He fell just a triple short of the cycle, having collected his third double of the season in the win.
"I got that one pretty good," Posey said, per MLB.com. "I've hit some balls to that spot before that haven't gone out, but I thought that one would."
Posey has hit .308/.379/.476 with seven home runs and 21 RBI in 143 at-bats.
|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.
