Sun Aug 1515:31Buster Posey On The Bench Sunday
San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey is getting a day off on Sunday. The Giants will take on the Colorado Rockies and right-handed starter Jon Gray but will do so without arguably their best hitter.

He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Curt Casali, who is hitting seventh against Gray.
