Notes 
 Yadi isn't likely to knock 20 homers again at this point in his career, but he is a safe source of batting average and also provides a handful of steals every year as well. While he is healthy, batting in the middle of the lineup should provide plenty of RBIs and runs for fantasy owners too.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
We've seen Posey's power numbers slowly drop over each of the last four seasons but last year the batting average finally plummeted too. There isn't much upside here but at the very least, you know he will play almost every day.
