Manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that he hopes to rest Posey more this season, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fatigue seemed to come into play for Posey late last year (.651 OPS in September), and Bochy seems intent on having Posey catch fewer games this season with the hope that he will be more fresh for the stretch run. Even with a possible dip in playing time, Posey still projects as one of the top fantasy catchers in 2017. Posey's home run total declined again last season, but his hard-hit rate was the best of his career and the plate skills remain firmly intact as he enters his age-30 season.

Posey will play for the United States in this year's World Baseball Classic, CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With nothing to prove in spring training, Posey will represent his country and headline a stacked Untied States squad. The former MVP is still 29-years-old, so he should have the endurance to not be affected negatively by participating in the tournament. Posey remains a top fantasy catcher heading into the regular season.

Posey went 3-for-5 with three RBI in Sunday's wild card-clinching win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

He's coming off a weak .238/.299/.352 September performance, but Posey might be finding his batting stroke again just at the right time as the Giants head into the postseason. Posey's .288/.362/.434 slash line on the year is a little below his usual standards, but he did score a career-high 82 runs in 2016 to go along with 14 home runs and 80 RBI.

Posey went 1-for-3 with two walks, a homer, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rockies

EDGE Analysis

Posey is doing his best to salvage what is considered a "down" year for him, collecting seven RBI over his last four games. While his numbers are down across the board; his .288 average, 14 home runs and 75 RBI are more you could hope for from your catcher slot.

Posey went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's loss to the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Posey took a fastball that was out of the strike zone and hammered it to left center, narrowly missing a home run and driving in two in the process. You've heard this before, but that ball would have been a home run in almost any other ballpark. The cool San Diego night kept the ball in the park for what could have been Posey's 14th homer of the season. So is life batting in the NL West. This wasn't the first, and will not be the last time a hitter is robbed of a home run by Petco Park, AT&T Park or Dodger Stadium. The two RBI brought Posey's total to 70 on the season, a mark he has reached in five straight years. With the Giants' playoff hopes on the line, look for the All-Star catcher to be the centerpiece of the lineup for the team's remaining eight games.

Posey will be held out of the lineup Sunday against the Cardinals, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Bruce Bochy was adamant that it's just going to be a rest day for Posey, who will still be available off the bench in the series finale against St. Louis. Posey is catching and batting third Saturday -- his fourth straight start behind the plate and 11th straight start overall (one start at first base).

Posey went 3-for-4 with a homer, two runs and four RBI in Friday's 8-2 win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Posey paced San Francisco's victory with a trio of hits, including his 13th homer of the season -- a two-run shot off Jaime Garcia in the fourth. The long ball was his first since July 16, snapping a 37-game homerless streak for the All-Star backstop. Despite his recent power outage, Posey has been swinging the bat well over the past couple weeks, batting .340/.358/.400 in his last 11 games. Posey's collected seven hits in his past two contests to lift his season line up to .294/.367/.449.

Posey went 4-for-5 with a double and a run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants scored six runs, and yet Posey's four hits out of the three-hole didn't result in many counting stats. This has been a bit of an underwhelming season the 29-year-old's standards, as his current .290 average and .804 OPS are five-year lows. He's still been a productive fantasy backstop, but owners who spent early picks on Posey can't be happy with his drop-offs in average and power. That said, Posey may simply be suffering from bad BABIP and HR/FB luck; he remains one of the top few fantasy catchers, mostly thanks to leading the position in runs scored with 76.

Posey went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Posey bounced back after going 0-for-6 in Friday's extra-inning win over these same Diamondbacks. It is hard to complain about a .285/.361/.434 slash line from a catcher, but the All-Star has seen his numbers dip across the board this season. While the homers (12) and RBI (63) are not where his owners would like them to be, Posey has already surpassed last year's totals in doubles (30), triples (two) and stolen bases (six).

Posey is not in the lineup Monday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

EDGE Analysis

Posey will get the day of after struggling mightily in the Giants' four-game series against the Cubs, in which he went just 1-of-16 at the plate. The Giants will go with Trevor Brown behind the plate Monday.
