Hundley entered Thursday's contest against the Rockies after Buster Posey had to be removed with an ankle injury. The backup went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a 10-9 loss.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was the veteran backstop's second of the season. With Posey expected to miss at least two games, Hundley gains short-term value while he fills in during the Giants' current series in the hitter's paradise that is Coors Field.

Hundley is hitting .244 with 10 doubles in 86 at-bats during his first season in San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Playing second fiddle at catcher behind All-Star Buster Posey, Hundley has not received many chances to prove he's the same guy who hit .301 in 2015 with Colorado. He's only had 21 hits this season, but about half of those have gone for extra-bases with his 10 doubles and one home run. With the calendar turning to June, there's always a chance the Giants will try to give Posey some off days to keep him fresh and healthy. If they do, it would give Hundley more chances to show his worth, but his stats to this point suggests he might not be able to do much with more playing time even if he got it.

Hundley is in the Giants' Thursday lineup against the Dodgers behind the plate, batting sixth, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Buster Posey is sliding over to first base, and Brandon Belt is shifting to left field. Considering San Francisco's struggles in left, this could wind up being a semi-regular occurrence, especially against southpaws like Los Angeles' Julio Urias, so Hundley could sneak in a few more at-bats per week. That'd make him somewhat valuable in two-catcher NL-only fantasy setups.

Hundley is not in the lineup Thursday against the Rockies, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hundley, serving as the Giants' primary catcher, will get the day off after playing in three straight games (starting two). Tim Federowicz will take over behind the plate, though Hundley will continue to get the bulk of reps at catcher with Buster Posey (head) out.

Hundley went 1-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Wednesday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Hundley, assuming primary catching duties for the injured Buster Posey (head), waited until his last at-bat to make an impact, but it ultimately provided some well-desired insurance for the San Francisco relief corps. The 33-year-old is now hitting .313 on the season and should continue to start behind the dish until Posey is ready for action again.

Hundley entered Monday's game against the Diamondbacks after Buster Posey was struck in the head with a fastball. He went 0-for-3 in a 4-1 win.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants' All-Star catcher said that felt fine after the game, but he will have to go through tests Tuesday before being cleared for the second game of the club's three-game series with Arizona. If Posey is unable to suit up, Hundley would get the start behind the dish against the left-handed Robbie Ray. The veteran backstop is just 1-for-7 so far this season, making him nothing more than a punt play in daily fantasy leagues should he get the nod.

Hundley went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran catcher was signed by the Giants this past offseason to serve as Buster Posey's primary backup. The Giants are known to move their All-Star catcher to first base against southpaws, so Hundley should get a start or two per week, slightly above the usual allotment for backup catchers. Still, it would take an injury to Posey for him to have any sort of fantasy value in standard one-catcher leagues.

Hundley signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The catcher has reportedly passed his physical, and is just waiting on the Giants to make a corresponding 40-man move to make it official. Hundley slashed .260/.320/.439 across 317 plate appearances with the Rockies last season and will serve as the backup to Buster Posey in San Francisco. The deal is expected to be a major league contract worth $2 million.

Hundley is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Rockies are using most of their left-handed options Wednesday against San Francisco righty Jeff Samardzija. With that, Tony Wolters will draw in behind the plate while Hundley gets the night off.

Hundley is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He will sit for the second time in three games, as the Rockies continue to rotate Hundley, Tony Wolters and Tom Murphy (Wednesday's starter) behind the plate. Hundley has hit safely in seven straight games with two home runs over that span, giving him double digit homers for the third time in his career.
