Nick Hundley ended up 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and a walk with two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's road win against the Angels.
It was Hundley's first two extra-base hits of the 2018 campaign, so don't get terribly excited about his fantasy prospects. While he is one of the better backup hitting backstops in the majors, his fantasy appeal is still rather low unless something happens to force Buster Posey out for a long period. Apr 21 - 1:40 AM

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, driving in five total in a lopsided win over the Rockies in Cactus League play Sunday.

Hundley smashed a two-run double in the third inning before swatting a three-run homer off new Rockies reliever Bryan Shaw in the seventh. The ball was certainly flying as if they were in Coors Field, as his was one of four homers the Giants hit on the afternoon. Hundley remains one of the better-hitting backup catchers in the league.

Giants re-signed C Nick Hundley to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reported the contract details. Hundley batted .244/.272/.418 with nine homers and 35 RBI in 101 games as an active backup to Buster Posey this past season and will serve in a similar role in 2018.

Nick Hundley is interested in returning to the Giants next season.

Signed to a one-year, $2 million prior to spring training, Hundley has served as an active backup to Buster Posey this season while batting .251/.281/.434 with nine homers and 34 RBI over 290 plate appearances. He doesn't rate highly in regard to framing, but he has thrown out 30 percent of attempted basestealers and the Giants like the way he has worked with the pitching staff. He's unlikely to find a starting job at this point in his career, so a return is possible. "I think he knows how much we think about him," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy. "He’ll have some choices, but … I’ll sit down with him in the next day or two."

Nick Hundley had a three-run homer, an RBI single and a walk Monday as the Giants thrashed the Diamondbacks 9-2.

Hundley had gone his last eight starts without driving in a run before hitting a three-run homer off Zack Godley tonight. It was his ninth homer of the year, bringing him closer to his usual total; he finished with exactly 10 in both 2015 and 2016.

Nick Hundley cracked a walk-off solo homer to defeat the Cardinals 2-1 on Saturday.

He led off the bottom of the tenth by shooting a Ryan Sherriff pitch over the right field wall to send the fans home happy. The backup catcher finished the game 1-for-4 and the team as a whole could manage only four hits all afternoon. Hundley now owns a .260 batting average with six home runs and 25 RBI on the season.

Nick Hundley posted a double and a two-run home run with a walk across five at-bats in Tuesday's 10-4 victory in Oakland.

Hundley was serving as the designated hitter in the American League park, and he didn't waste any time getting started. His two-run shot in the opening frame helped set the tone in the lopsided interleague road win, one of three homers by the Giants.

Nick Hundley went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Hundley took a Kyle Freeland offering deep for a two-run ride in the fourth inning. The dinger was his third of the season. The backup catcher is hitting .244/.269/.409 in 47 games.

Nick Hundley went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

Hundley took Mike Dunn deep for a solo home run in the eighth inning. The dinger was his second of the season. In 106 at-bats this season, the veteran backstop is hitting .236/.239/.396 with 13 extra-base hits.

Nick Hundley finished 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's game against the Braves.

Hundley has answered the bell lately when given the opportunity to play, going 9-for-25 (.360) with a double, home run and four RBI over the past nine games, raising his average from .207 to .253 just since May 6. Still, he doesn't play frequently enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of deeper NL-only leagues.

Nick Hundley went 1-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Hundley has been on something of a two-bagger tear of late. Sunday's double was his seventh of the season and that hit marked his fourth game in a row with such an extra-base knock. He is still looking for his first home run, though, after bopping 10 in each of the last two seasons.
Sun, Apr 23, 2017 06:11:00 PM

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's Cactus League date with the A's.

A's starter Andrew Triggs got into trouble in the fourth inning when he loaded the bases with nobody out. Hundley was kind enough to unload them, rocking a home run to drive in all parties. He does not figure to have many chances for these kinds of heroics during the season, but should do a nice job while serving as backup to Buster Posey. Barring an injury to Posey, there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Nick Hundley slugged two home runs in the Giants' 5-3 Cactus League win over the Padres on Tuesday.

Hundley had a solo shot off Padres starter Trevor Cahill in the bottom of the second and a three-run bomb against reliever Kevin Quackenbush in the bottom of the seventh. San Francisco's new backup catcher is batting .323 with a .986 OPS in 39 plate appearances this spring.

Nick Hundley plated the Giants' lone run in a Cactus League loss to the Rockies on Friday.

Hundley went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles and an RBI against his former club. He's having himself a nice spring, hitting .308 (8-for-26) with three RBI. With Buster Posey entrenched as the starting catcher, it's hard to envision Hundley playing enough to warrant fantasy consideration outside of NL-only leagues.

Giants signed C Nick Hundley to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Andrew Baggarly first reported details of the agreement. Hundley has logged significant playing time over the past two seasons in Colorado, but he'll shift into a backup role behind Buster Posey with his new club. Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Tuesday that he still sees Posey catching around 120 games in 2017, so there's not much room for Hundley to carve out fantasy value.
