Buster Posey (C,1B)

San Francisco Giants - 99% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Buster Posey will miss his second game in a row with an injury that is now being diagnosed as hamstring tightness. This should come as a relief to Posey's owners, as he should return to action on Friday. (Source: Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle)

Fantasy Impact: Posey has had an incredible 2015 season. Posey will be the starting catcher for the NL in the All-Star game this year. Posey has accumulated 14 home runs and 57 RBI so far, and is set to cruise past his 2014 totals of 22 HR and 89 RBI. Posey remains one of the best catchers in the MLB and perhaps the three days rest will increase Posey's production before the All-Star break.

Buster Posey took a baseball to his catcher's mask in yesterday's game against the Marlins. Posey left the game early to undergo concussion protocol, and Giants' manager Bruce Bochy said Posey felt "off". The concussion raised a lot of concern due to Posey's history with concussions. Fortunately, Posey is alright and should return to the lineup shortly. (Source: Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Posey was lucky to dodge a concussion last night. The All-Star catcher has been incredibly consistent, as always, for the Giants in 2015. No major time will be missed.

With the All-Star game approaching, Posey is trying to solidify his place in the game. Posey has gone 7-for-21 in his last AB (.333 AVG). Impressive right? Definitely, especially because two of those hits were home runs and he has driven in 12 RBI throughout that span.

Fantasy Impact: Posey should certainly earn his place in the All-Star game. Posey is one of the elite catchers in baseball today and his impact on the Giants is undeniable.

Buster Posey went 1-for-3 with a single, a walk, and two runs scored against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Posey has tailed off a bit so far in June, batting .288 with one home run compared to his stellar May (.323/5 HRs/17 RBI/17 R). However, he's still a top option at catcher (third on the player rater at C), and should be active in all fantasy formats.

Buster Posey had a solid night against the Mets. In five AB, Posey tallied three hits, including one double. Posey's solid game was outshone by something more historic, rookie pitcher Chris Heston throwing a no-hitter.

Fantasy Impact: Posey is batting .293 on the season so far, and is in the running to be in this year's All-Star game. With nine home runs and 31 RBI, Posey solidifies his must-start status on a nightly basis.

Buster Posey went 2-for-4 with a single and a solo-HR against the Phillies on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Posey's ninth homer puts him in second in the category for catchers, and the multi-hit game raised his average to .289, also second at the C position (behind Vogt of the A's in both). Posey is having another great year, as we've come to expect from him, and fantasy owners know what to do with someone of his caliber.

Buster Posey has had a rough stretch of games in the past week. Out of his past 10 AB, Posey has only amassed one hit, a low statline for an All-Star catcher like himself. However, Posey remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Do not let Posey's form sway your stance on keeping him on your fantasy team. Besides, Posey is still batting .290 on the season, and he is on track to match his stats from 2014 (22 HR, 89 RBI)- as he now has 8 HR and 29 RBI. Keep your faith in Posey, his best baseball has yet to come.

Buster Posey drove in two more with his home run to left field. He accounted for all three RBI against the Astros. He also went 3-5 and increased his average up to .291 and has five home runs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Buster Posey is really heating up as late and is now batting .291, look for him to continue to swing a hot bat, and obviously he should be in your starting lineup.

Buster Posey will be excluded from tonight's game against the Colorado Rockies. There is no injury that is keeping Posey from playing tonight, so do not worry. Posey is excluded from tonight's game to rest. (Source: KNBR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Posey is taking tonight off, it would be ridiculous to drop Posey from your team. There are always decent options on the waiver wire, and chances are you will only need their services for tonight while Posey rests. Posey remains one of the top catchers in the majors and is a must-start in every league when he is in the lineup.


Buster Posey went 3-for-3 batting in game two of the series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was an impressive rebound game for Posey, considering he went 0-for-4 in game one.

Fantasy Impact: Buster Posey is still one of the elite catchers in the MLB, and a well-rounded hitter. In game two, Posey sent his first homer over the wall. Posey remains a must-start, so expect a solid display to close the series out tonight.

Buster Posey went 0-for-4 on Opening Day with a sac-fly RBI being the only positive on his statline. Yesterday was not Posey's best day batting, but it is common for top players to need "warm-up" games before they start getting the hot bat.

Fantasy Impact: Don't let this game cause doubt on whether or not Posey should be your starting catcher. Posey is proven to be a solid hitter throughout the season and still one of the top catchers in the league. Another matchup against the Diamondbacks tonight could see Posey with a much better statline, expect more RBIs and home runs to come as he starts to get his groove back.
