Posey fell off the fantasy map in 2018, managing to hit just five home runs while playing through a hip ailment that eventually required surgery. He didn't show any obvious signs of decline in his batted ball profile, and his plate discipline remained as good as ever, so a modest bounce back should be expected. The biggest concern is that the Giants pump the brakes on Posey's playing time to preserve his health. Given his poor hitting environment, weak supporting cast, and lack of category juice, Posey needs to rack up a lot of at-bats in order for his typically high batting average to be a true difference-maker for fantasy owners.

Buster Posey (hip) takes BP without issue

Buster Posey (hip) took batting practice on the field on Wednesday without any issue.

Fantasy Impact

Manager Bruce Bochy described Posey as having "a normal day". It's encouraging to hear Posey is doing well, but San Francisco has been adamant they will bring him along slowly and cautiously. Still, the 31-year-old former MVP appears to be on track for Opening Day. He could be a bargain at his current ADP.
