Player Notes
Buster Posey is not in the Giants starting lineup on Sunday.

Advice: Manager Bruce Bochy had been hinting that he needed to get Posey a night off, and it looks as though Sunday night is the time. Trevor Brown will start behind the dish for the Giants.

Buster Posey (back) went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Advice: Posey has been dealing with a bit of a tight lower back of late and sat out games on Sunday and Monday, but his bat looked no worse for the wear in Tuesday's return to the lineup. The rock-of-a-backstop struck early, notching a two-run double in the first inning. He would later add a single. Assuming his back doesn't tighten up on him again, fantasy owners should feel free to utilize him as normal moving forward. For the season, Posey is slashing .290/.369/.457 with 26 doubles, 12 homers and 56 RBI across 383 at-bats.

Tue, Aug 16 Rotoworld
Buster Posey (back) has returned to the Giants' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Pirates.

Advice: Posey was a late scratch Sunday against the Orioles after experiencing lower back tightness and he sat out of Monday's series opener against the Bucs with lingering discomfort. He will start at catcher and bat cleanup Tuesday versus Pirates right-hander Jameson Taillon.
