Marco Scutaro injury update, plus Wednesday’s lineup

Posted By Thomas Todd On June 12, 2013 @ 1:12 pm In Giants,injury,Lineup | No Comments

Marco Scutaro left Tuesday’s game against the Pirates after being struck on the hand by a 94 MPH fastball in the seventh inning. Now, he has “mallet finger” in his pinky according to Alex Pavlovic of the Merc [1]. Mallet finger is damage to a tendon and if you know what’s good for you, you won’t Google it.

The Giants will talk to Scutaro and discuss their options. Pavlovic mentioned there is a small possibility that Scutaro could play through the pain and avoid the disabled list, where the Giants are forming an All-Star team. Ryan Vogelsong, Pablo Sandoval and Angel Pagan are all currently out, meaning if Scutaro is out the Giants are missing a starting pitcher and their 1-2-3 hitters. Eesh.

After a slow start, Scutaro has begin to justify the contract he got from the San Francisco Giants in the off-season. The second baseman is hitting .332/.388/.444 for an OPS+ of 141. Continued success at that rate this year would nearly match his career high OPS+ of 144, which he logged in 2012 at the age of 36. Whoa. He’s getting better.

Here’s the lineup for Wednesday against LHP Francisco Liriano (4-2, 1.75 ERA):

LF Torres

2B Abreu (???)

C Posey

RF Pence

3B Arias

1B Belt

CF Perez

SS Crawford (!!!)

LHP Zito (4-4, 4.06 ERA)
