Player Notes
Buster Posey hit a walk-off two-run homer in the ninth inning to send the Giants to a 4-2 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Advice: It was his second career walk-off homer. The catcher finished 3-for-5 with three RBI. Posey hit his 16th and 17th home runs on Tuesday, and his 18th tonight -- he's one of many pro batters that practices gratitude for the existence of Rockies' pitchers. During his seven-game hitting streak, Posey is 15-for-31 (.484) with five homers and 10 RBI.

Buster Posey belted his 16th and 17th home runs of the season and accounted for all of San Francisco's offense in Tuesday's 3-0 victory over the Rockies.

Advice: This was his second career multi-homer game (the other coming in 2010). Posey knocked in RBI 63 and 64 while taking Rockies' starter Jorge De La Rosa deep in the sixth inning, and got his 65th with an emphatic eighth inning homer off Brooks Brown. Posey might have gotten JDLR at less than full strength -- the hurler suffered a thumb contusion while batting in the top half of the frame -- but he certainly won't give it back (De La Rosa was immediately removed once Posey crossed home plate). Posey finished the game 2-for-4. The catcher is slashing .288/.346/.457.

Buster Posey hit his fifteenth home run of the season and knocked in RBI 60 and 61 in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Advice: Posey finished the game 2-for-5. The home run came off of Nationals starter Doug Fister. Posey also added a double, his 22nd, off of reliever Ross Detwiler. On the season, Posey is slashing .284/.345/.438. He's hit fifteen home runs and batted in 61.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said moving Buster Posey to first base isn't being discussed right now.

Advice: "Right now, no," Bochy said. "Down the road, sure, that's something we will talk about. It could lighten the load on Buster. Whether at some point down the road he will get out from behind the plate, I can't answer that. Right now it's not discussed." Posey has been bothered by a hip issue recently, and catching certainly isn't helping the matter. Still, having a catcher with Posey's bat is incredibly valuable, and the Giants appear ready to leave him there for the time being. Bochy did say that if and when Posey does move it will be to first and not to third base, as some have wondered. But for now, neither move is on the horizon.

Buster Posey finished 4-for-4 with a walk, a pair of doubles, and a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Cubs.

Advice: Posey homered in the fifth inning off of Travis Wood, breaking a 3-3 tie. It's the fifth time in his career he reached base five times in a game, with the most recent occurring on July 8 last season in a 16-inning loss. Posey owns a .282/.342/.435 slash line along with 14 home runs and 59 RBI on the season.

Buster Posey (hip) will be back in the Giants' starting lineup on Thursday against the Cubs.

Advice: The Giants first have to finish out a suspended game and then will play a full nine innings after that. Posey, who sat out Wednesday after experiencing some discomfort in his left hip, is expected to participate in both.

Buster Posey is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Cubs after his left hip flared up.

Advice: The issue affected his at-bats on Tuesday, so he has been getting treatment all day Wednesday. He's available off the bench and the hope is that he'll be ready to go Thursday. Consider him day-to-day.
