6/17/2014 9:38:00 AM
Description: San Francisco catcher Buster Posey left Sunday's game after taking a foul ball off his mask and is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox.
Insight: He went 1-for-2 before exiting in the fourth inning, saying his head "feels a little weird." Hector Sanchez (.226, 3 HR, 24 RBI) is his replacement option. It's only a matter of time before the Giants move their best hitter/player out of the catching position ... probably for the start of the 2015 season.

Insight: Posey has been struggling over the past month, batting just .219 over the last 18 games. Still, he's a top-tier fantasy catcher, who will eventually break out of the slump. Just not on Tuesday.
