Tommy La Stella will receive an MRI of the left hamstring and “may be down a bit“With an injury, Giants manager Gabe Kapler told The Athletic Andrew Baggarly and other reporters after today’s 7-1 win over the Padres. La Stella pulled up as he ran home to score on an RBI grounding from Wilmer Flores in the fifth inning and he was replaced in the field in the lower half of the inning.
It brought a sour ending to one of La Stella’s best days in a Giants uniform, as the second baseman was 2-for-3 (single and triple) with two RBIs and two points scored. When La Stella signed a three-year $ 1
Unfortunately, he appears to be returning with a visit to the 10-day injury list that is participating Donovan Solano as another Giants infielder in order. A right-wing trunk put Solano back on April 21, and Kapler did not yet have a timeline of when the infielder could be back in action.
However, the manager’s pregame chat with journalists (including John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle) provided more positive updates about a few wounded giants, such as another name on the field in Brandon Crawford. Shortstop is still day-to-day after suffering a bruised left calf when hit by a pitch at Friday’s game, and although Crawford did not play in today’s game, Kapler indicated that Crawford was an option to be used as a late game under This indicates that Crawford may be ready to roll as early as Monday when the Giants begin a road series against the Rockies in Denver.
Mike Yastrzemski perhaps not far behind, as Kapler believes the outfielder may return from IL after a 10-day minimum. Yastrzemski suffered a mild oblique strain on April 25, but the team was initially hoping he could completely avoid the injured list before finally sending him to IL with a back dated April 26. If “Yaz” is really capable of returning as soon as possible, he would be eligible for the Giants’ 7. May match against Padres.
The news is not so good for Reyes Moronta, who is undergoing examination after feeling tight in his forearm on Saturday. Moronta warmed up as part of his rehabilitation from a fairly flexor strain, and after missing the entire 2020 season due to shoulder surgery, Moronta hit just four games in 2021 before being sidelined again. Moronta has shown some promise when he has been able to pitch, and has sent a 2.65 ERA and 29.5% knockout rate over 132 1/3 innings out of the San Francisco bullpen since the start of the 2017 season .
