Alex Reyes allowed one run on two hits with one strikeout to take the loss against the Rockies on Sunday. Reyes entered the bottom of the ninth inning in a tie game hoping to send it to extra-innings. He got Brendan Rodgers to ground out, then struck out Ryan McMahon to start start the inning. Joshua Fuentes singled and made it to second on a wild pitch before Elias Diaz walked it off with a base hit. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 5-3 record while going 20-for-20 in save chances. He has an impressive 0.89 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts over 40 1/3 innings.

Buster Posey is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a left thumb contusion. Posey was hit on the thumb by a foul ball during Sunday night's gam against the Diamondbacks, forcing his early exit in the sixth inning. Fortunately for the Giants -- and for fantasy managers -- the National League's starting catcher in the upcoming All-Star Game was able to avoid significant injury. Giants manager Gabe Kapler said that he won't start on Monday, but may be available off the bench.
