Susac's leadoff solo home run in the ninth inning was his second in as many games. The Oregon State product homered in back-to-back games for the first time since June 28-30 of last year at Erie with Double-A Richmond. He currently is hitting 6-11 (.545) with two doubles, two homers and five RBI over three games since returning from the disabled list on May 8.

2014 sickels prospect report:

He’s tapping into his power more effectively and there seems less concern about his hitting mechanics with the most recent reports. Note the combination of walks with a reasonably low strikeout rate. He’s also sharpening up his defense, throwing out 40% of runners in Double-A while lowering his error and passed ball rates. Despite his progress, Susac seems to be overlooked this winter. I think the problem here is that people are still thinking about 2012 and not adjusting enough for conditions in the Eastern League, where he really hit quite well, .256 average aside. His SEC was .363.

and how's a backup catcher going to be relevant?

His situation is really only relevant to Buster Posey, with the possibility of him playing 1B, but Susac won't have stand alone value in almost any league.

Belt out. Duvall is terrible so far. Buster getting the snot beat out of him behind the plate. I could see the kid getting some PT. The Giants farm leaves a lot to be desired. I don't see him making an impact

I'm thinking if Posey ever moves to 1B full-time like Mauer, Susac could have some sneaky value as a catcher. But that's a big IF.

Probably not happening for another year or two...Can Posey play 3B? That was always the combo, was Catchers would play some 3B too...don't see it as much these days. Thinking they are going to give Belt another year at 1B, unless they move Belt to LF because that seems to be a revolving door position each year for them...will they re-sign Sandoval, who isn't putting up a monster season, but its enough someone will throw big money at him this winter.

But you are right, if Posey moves out of C, Susac has some appeal in your standard size 2-catch leagues.

Bochy said Susac will get a ton of time behind plate for now. Posey to see a lot of 1B, but may catch Bumgarner tomorrow.
