Here's a running list of injury updates around the Major Leagues: – A's outfielder Coco Crisp is likely headed to the Disabled List according to Jane Lee of MLB.com. Crisp missed seven games last month because of a virus and “on Tuesday he was out of the lineup again as a result of a sinus infection.” Yesterday he was taken out of the game after just seven innings. “He had to come out of the game, obviously, which we didn't envision at the start of the game,” manager Bob Melvin said. “We'll take the off-day and see where we go from here. We're probably less encouraged at this point with where we're going with him than earlier [Wednesday]. It's just been a struggle for him. For him to take himself out of the game means he was struggling.” Lee adds that Crisp will be evaluated today. – Third baseman Eric Chavez was taken out of the game yesterday during an AB because of a whiplash and according to the Associated Press he could also have a concussion. – Ernie Smith City Royals have placed infielder Yuniesky Betancourt on the 15-day Disabled List with an ankle injury according to Aaron Gleeman of NBCSports. – According to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Pablo Sandoval sustained a fracture in his left hamate bone and will be out for at least six weeks. We learned earlier today that Sandoval is scheduled to undergo surgery tomorrow. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License Agreement.

Marlins Sweep the Giants

On the day it was announced that Pablo Sandoval would miss the next six weeks with a broken hamate bone in his left hand, the Giants didn’t do much to raise spirits. In fact, these last three games against the Marlins have featured some pretty shoddy baseball on their part: The Giants scored five runs this series. They managed to strand 23 baserunners in this three-game set....

Pablo Sandoval Headed for the Disabled List

Led by Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, the San Francisco Giants offense has actually been decent this year. Their 95 wRC+ ranks them 8th in the National League, thanks in large part to the contributions of Buster Posey (.342/.400/.575) and Pablo Sandoval (.316/.375/.537). Melky Cabrera has been good, and the team has gotten production from the Brandon Belt/Brett Pill platoon when...

Bochy fears Sandoval has a serious hand injury

Postgame Wrap: Stomp Your Feet, And Let’s Make Some Noise

Thomas and I both had to work at game time Thursday, so this wrap is a bit delayed. It’s currently 12:30 am on Friday, and I’m watching the game on DVR, writing the wrap in the bottom of the fourth inning. Because that’s the kind of game this is going to be. Again. This Marlins series was never going to go well. Most of you may not remember when the Giants played the Marlins...

Scoring Hits the Breaks as Injuries Accelerate

The San Francisco Giants have apparently found a cure for run scoring fever. Apparently it involves getting a lot of rest during every half inning of every game, and making more frequent visits to the medical clinic.The numbers, as they often do, speak volumes: the first 16 games of the season saw the Giants scoring 4.44 runs per game, a full run per game higher than their disastrous...
