Buster Posey riding pine for Giants against Arizona
San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Zac Gallen and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Posey is only playing about two-thirds of the Giants' games at this point in his career but he's slashing an impressive .337/.411/.586 with 12 homers through 190 plate appearances. Curt Casali will catch Kevin Gausman on Thursday and bat sixth. Donovan Solano has been bumped up to the second spot in the order.
numberFire’s models project Casali for 7.6 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Thursday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Giants have an implied total of 4.0 runs. Gallen is registering a 27.8 strikeout percentage and 12.2 walk percentage this season.
