Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey is just a .177 career hitter versus Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Insight: Can you blame him? Kershaw is the best left-handed pitcher since Randy Johnson. Posey is 11-for-62 with one home run against Kershaw. If there is a better option at catcher out there, go with that on Tuesday, but if owners want to stick with Posey, that is understandable as well. He was the No. 1 catcher taken after all.

4/8/2015 9:19:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey showed on Tuesday why he is the top option at catcher this season.

10/29/2014 9:27:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey continues to struggle in the 2014 World Series.
Insight: Posey hit with the bases loaded and one out in the third inning. San Francisco had just allowed Kansas City to score seven runs in the second, so any kind of run would have meant a slight swing in momentum. Instead, Posey grounded into a double play to end the inning. Posey is batting just .190 since the start of the NLCS and doesn't have an extra base hit the entire postseason.

Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey was 0-for-4 with an RBI in Game 3 of the World Series.

10/22/2014 11:01:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey will be facing Royals' starter Yordano Ventura for the first time on Wednesday night.

10/12/2014 11:00:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey is 4-for-6 lifetime against Cardinals' starter Lance Lynn.
Insight: The most at-bats a Giants' player has against Lynn, is Hunter Pence with nine. Posey has had success in limited at-bats, as he has one homer and four RBI against St Louis' Game 2 starter. Posey is a strong daily play.
 
10/11/2014 9:59:00 AM
Description: Giants catcher Buster Posey is just 2-for-11 (.182) versus Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright.
Insight: Posey may not have good numbers against Wainwright, but he had a terrific September and was 9-for-23 (.391) in the NLDS against Washington.
