The absolute disaster that is Bengie Molina at the plate has been a drain on the Giants all season. Their playoff chances are up to 31% after tonight's win against the Phillies, but they have carried a catcher who totaled a line of .261/.281/.437. That's 12 walks in 448 PA for a 2.6% walk rate.
They have a chance now with a lingering quadriceps strain to find some at bats for prospect Buster Posey to get a shot. Let's look through his minor league numbers to see what he has shown so far since being promoted to Triple-A for 146 PAs.
K% - 18.3%
BB% - 11.9%
Line - .310/.384/.508
First up is what type of playing time can you count on? Unfortunately the Giants continue to fail at lineup selection and according to Bruce Bochy he will not be starting. Late innings replacement, double switches and pinch-running?
It looks like Posey is nothing more than a add in keeper leagues, but most should have had him added already. If your in a single league there is no reason to add him for 2009. Looking to 2010 though expect him to be a potential starter and a huge sleeper.
