Player Notes
Buster Posey is getting the day off Wednesday.

Advice: Posey will continue to get regular days off as the Giants look to keep him fresh, especially when they're scheduled to play in the daytime following a night game. Trevor Brown is at catcher and batting seventh on Wednesday afternoon against the Reds.

Buster Posey went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's victory over the Reds.

Advice: All three of his hits were doubles. The Giants tallied 10 hits on the night and finally scratched across the go-ahead runs in the eighth inning. Posey has picked up seven hits over his last three games and has pushed his average from .264 to .315 over his last five contests.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that he plans to rest Buster Posey more this season.

Advice: "The plan really all year with Buster, probably, is to give him a few more breaks than what I’ve given in the past," Bochy said. Posey set career highs in games played and plate appearances last season, although he started 37 games at first base. He's been at first just twice so far this season and it sounds like he'll see more full days off rather than play first when he's not catching. While Posey's fantasy owners might not like him playing fewer games, it could be good for his production in the long run if it helps keep him fresher.

Buster Posey is getting a day off Wednesday.

Advice: Trevor Brown will start at catcher and bat eighth versus Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner. A scheduled off day Thursday allows the Giants to get Posey back-to-back days of rest. He's slashing .264/.325/.417 with three home runs in 19 games this season.
