San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey has opted out of the 2020 season, according to multiple reports. Andrew Baggarly reports on Twitter that Posey and his wife are adopting identical twin girls who were born prematurely and will be in NICU for some time. (Alex Pavlovic on Twitter)
While once an elite contributor for fantasy owners, Posey hit just .257 with seven home runs across 114 games last season. The logical speculation will turn to top-prospect Joey Bart assuming the catching job in San Francisco, but the Giants would reportedly prefer for Bart to get some more time in the minor leagues.
