Posey is out of the lineup Friday against the Padres, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Posey will get a seat Friday following a 2-for-2 night at the plate Thursday with an RBI and two runs scored. Despite the Giants' loss Thursday, they managed to clinch a playoff spot with the loss by the Brewers. The clinching may have contributed to the decision to sit Posey on Friday.

San Francisco continues to stalk the division-leading Dodgers, and now trail their rivals by just three games, while holding the top wildcard spot in the standings.

Posey continues to have a monstrous month of September, slashing a ridiculous .472/.488/.750 in 36 at-bats this month. He is rewarding owners who stuck with him through his lackluster months of April and May. With a .309 batting average to compliment 20 homers and 82 RBI, Posey is making a case for being the best catcher in fantasy baseball.
