San Francisco Giants reserve infielder Joaquin Arias exited yesterday's contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers after straining his left hamstring, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com. Arias suffered the injury while scoring the team's only run. He reached base on a fielder's choice and scored on Andres Torres' two-out double. After scoring, Arias was removed from the game in the second inning, as he was replaced by regular shortstop Brandon Crawford. Following the game, Arias told reporters that his injury was "not too bad." Manager Bruce Bochy agreed, terming the ailment "mild." The skipper said Arias would be reevaluated today, but he's expected to only require a couple of days to recover. Arias has appeared in 58 games for the Giants this season, manning first and third base as well as shortstop. He's been used as a right-handed bat, as he was last night against Dodgers southpaw Hyun-jin Ryu. Over 114 plate appearances the 28-year-old has hit .276/.297/.305 with one double and triple.
