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.

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.
Mar 18 - 12:02 AM

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.
Jan 24 - 2:17 PM

Andrew Baggarly reports that the Giants have signed catcher Nick Hundley.

Baggarly reports that Hundley has passed his physical, but we're still waiting on an official announcement from the team. It's expected to be a major league deal worth $2 million. The 33-year-old batted .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers in 83 games for the Rockies last season and will serve as Buster Posey's backup in San Francisco.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that Nick Hundley is the Orioles' "Plan A" as they look for a catcher.

He says Hundley is "Plan B" for "several clubs," but Baltimore is apparently higher on the backstop. Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com reported earlier Monday that the O's had interest in Hundley, who played for the Orioles for half of the 2014 season. He batted .260/.320/.439 with 10 homers for the Rockies last season.

According to Dan Connolly of BaltimoreBaseball.com, the Orioles have shown interest in reuniting with free agent backstop Nick Hundley.

The Orioles have a glaring need behind the plate with Matt Wieters expected to leave as a free agent this winter and Caleb Joseph coming off of an extremely disappointing 2016 season. With top prospect Chance Sisco penciled in as the catcher of the future, the O's are looking for a short-term fix and Hundley, who spent the 2014 season in Baltimore, could be their man.

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Hundley, a free agent to be, figures to lose at-bats this month with Tommy Murphy up and Tony Wolters also looking for extra playing time. Still, he made his case to stay in the lineup tonight. The slam was his ninth homer of the year.

Nick Hundley had a nice day at the dish in Friday's loss to the Nationals, going 3-for-4 with a homer, double and four RBI.

Hundley tied the game at 2-2 in the fifth inning with an RBI double. He then tagged Shawn Kelley for a three-run blast in the ninth inning, pulling the Rockies to within three runs at 8-5. The hard-hitting backstop is now batting .251/.322/.421 with seven homers and 37 RBI on the season.

Nick Hundley hit a three-run double in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

Hundley's bases-loaded double capped a six-run third inning for the Rockies. The 32-year-old had to breathe a bit of a sigh of relief after the big knock, as he has just seven hits in 32 at-bats since coming off the disabled list on June 3. Hundley is batting .250/.374/.434 with two homers and 12 RBI overall.

Rockies activated C Nick Hundley from the 15-day disabled list.

Hundley will return to the Rockies starting lineup on Friday, hitting eighth against Colin Rea and the Padres. Before landing on the shelf, the veteran backstop was hitting .273/.407/.523 with two homers and seven RBI in his first 17 games.
