Catcher Buster Posey went 0-for-3 in the Giants' 3-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.
The Giants couldn't get much of anything going on offense with Max Fried dealing for the Braves. Posey has been slumping for the better part of a month, slashing just .220/.281/.390 over his last 15 games. He's still rocking an impressive .297/.320/.368 with 18 home runs and 47 RBI for the year.
Catcher Buster Posey went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored as the Giants defeated the Padres 6-1 on Tuesday.
Posey opened up the scoring on Tuesday, swatting his 18th homer of the year off Jake Arrieta in the bottom of the first inning. He singled in the third inning and came around to score as well. The resurgent backstop has put together an excellent season the San Francisco, slashing .301/.391/.510 with 18 homers and 46 RBI over 345 at-bats. He's a big reason why the Giants were the first team to clinch a playoff berth.
Buster Posey is absent from the Giants' lineup on Wednesday against the Rockies.
It's a routine day off for the veteran catcher in a Wednesday matinee. Curt Casali is starting in his place.
Catcher Buster Posey went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, two runs scored, and two strikeouts as the Giants beat the Rockies 10-5 on Monday.
Posey followed up Darin Ruf, who homered to start the game, with a solo home run of his own. He also doubled later in the contest and came around to score. The resurgent backstop is now slashing .306/.395/.512 with 17 home runs and 44 RBI over 324 at-bats on the year. He's been one of the best catchers in fantasy baseball all season.
Giants' catcher Buster Posey is not in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the division rival Dodgers.
There is nothing to indicate that the Giants are keeping Posey out of the lineup for any reason other than to rest their veteran backstop. Over his last two games, Posey has gone 3-for-9 with a double, a run scored, an RBI, and a walk. Curt Casali will start in Posey's absence.
