Nick Hundley hit a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

Hundley got the start post-dish and hit the three-run shot off Bucs reliever Richard Rodriguez in the sixth inning. It was his only hit on the afternoon. With Buster Posey getting frequent rest and also spending time at first base on occasion, Hundley has found his way into 24 games thus far and has produced when given the opportunity, batting .290/.333/.548 with four homers in 62 at-bats.

Nick Hundley went 4-for-5 with a homer and three runs batted in on Wednesday in a 9-4 win over the Padres.

Hundley also had two doubles and scored four times in the rout. This comes two days after the backup backstop hit a game-winning two-run single in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Padres on Monday. He's having a nice week, and he's having a great 2018 season as seen in his .326/.367.609 line. It's very hard to imagine that this will keep up based on what he's done over his career, but at some point, the Giants might want to find a way to get Hundley's bat in the lineup more often if this keeps up.
May 2 - 6:49 PM

Nick Hundley hit a pinch-hit two-run single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Giants a 6-5 win over the Padres on Monday.

Hundley pinch-hit for Pierce Johnson with the bases loaded and two outs, and his single scored Buster Posey and Evan Longoria to gives the Giants the come-from-behind victory. It's been a decent start to the season for Buster Posey's backup, and his line of .268/.318/.463 is solid for a second catcher.
May 1 - 1:40 AM

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 and cracked a solo homer in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He went yard off Josh Fields in the eighth inning long after the blowout game had already been decided. Hundley is serving as Buster Posey's backup at catcher this year. He has a .260 batting average with two homers and four RBI on the season.
Apr 28 - 8:28 PM

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.
Mar 19 - 1:07 AM

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.
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 02:11:00 AM

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.
Sat, Sep 2, 2017 08:41:00 PM

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.
Wed, Aug 2, 2017 02:20:00 AM

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.
Wed, Jun 28, 2017 07:48:00 PM

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.
Fri, Jun 16, 2017 12:54:00 AM

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.
