Buster Posey scuffling at the plate since minor ankle injury

Buster Posey finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout in San Francisco's 6-3 win over Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

Posey has now gone 2-for-15 since tweaking his ankle with an uncharacteristic five strikeouts in that span. Tough to sit someone slashing .341/.429/.521 but keep an eye on whether his ankle continues to sap his swing.

Buster Posey dealing with ankle injury

Buster Posey is dealing with an ankle injury he suffered in Thursday's game. He told reporters that he doesn't believe he'll miss much time due to the injury.

Fantasy Impact

Posey was able to run the bases after the game and said he hopes to avoid the disabled list. While he could receive a few days off, it doesn't appear that he'll be sidelined for an extended period. He's again been the game's premier catcher, hitting .356 with nine homers and 25 RBIs.

Buster Posey goes 3-for-5 in Sunday's win

Giants first baseman Buster Posey went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and four RBIs on Sunday vs. the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Posey stands out in an era filled with high strikeout rates and lower batting averages, as he's now hitting .347 with a sparkling 27-to-18 BB/K ratio in 222 plate appearances. The ninth year player hasn't had to sacrifice power for contact, as he's hit eight home runs already in large part to an increase in his fly-ball rate from 2016, when he had just 14 home-runs.

Buster Posey continues to shine

Giants catcher Buster Posey went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk Wednesday against the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Posey extended his hitting streak to nine games with his first homer since May 15, and he now has a pristine .348/.440/.522 slash line through 209 at-bats this season. He should remain among the elite fantasy backstops the rest of the way.

Buster Posey drives in run in loss

Buster Posey finished 1-for-2 with an RBI and a walk in Sunday's 9-7 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Posey picked up the RBI on a sac fly in the third to pull the Giants within a run early but wasn't able to muster much more. The superstar backstop had been rather quiet the second half of May, having not driven in a run for nearly two weeks, but seems to be picking it up again with hits in six straight and three runs batted in during that span. Posey's still got an outstanding .343/.439/.512 line to go with seven home runs and 14 RBIs on the year and can get hot at any time.
