2021 Fantasy Outlook
Posey appears to have had a last hurrah in 2017 as a plus-plus offensive catcher. The defense remains top notch, but his offensive numbers began to look rather pedestrian in 2018. Sure, he has outstanding plate discipline and contact skills, but the power has faded away as the years of excessive playing time behind the plate have caught up with him. He opted out of 2020 with two new adopted babies at home, so it will be interesting to see if a year away from the game has helped the 34-year-old backstop to recover some zip in his swing. Older catchers sometimes show one final career bounce, and 2021 could be that for Posey as it is the final guaranteed year of his current deal. The Giants control the 2022 option, and a repeat of 2019 would make it very tough for the Giants to pick up that option. Read Past Outlooks
