LF,CF,RF - SF - IL10
Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski, who has been on the 10-day injured list for over a week with an oblique injury, is "on track" to make his return this weekend against the Padres.
Prior to his injury, Yastrzemski was slashing .215/.303/.468 with four home runs, six RBI, 10 walks, and 29 RBI. The 30-year-old ranks 32nd among all outfielders in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings. He was brilliant last season, so there is optimism that he can return to his 2020 form once his IL stint comes to an end.
The Giants placed OF Mike Yastrzemski (oblique) on the 10-day injured list retroactive to April 26th.
Yastrzemski was diagnosed with a left oblique strain and placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. The move was retroactive to April 26th. Darin Ruff should see an uptick in playing time while Yastrzemski is sidelined. LHP Sam Selman was recalled in a corresponding move.
Giants outfielder Mike Yastrzemski has officially been diagnosed with a left oblique strain. The injury is not considered to be anything major. Giants manager Gabe Kapler commented on the matter, stating that he hopes Yaz will be able to avoid IL time. The expectation is for him to miss about a week's worth of games. If it heals quicker than expected, he could be back sooner.
Yastrzemski hasn’t exactly been raking this season. He currently holds a .215 batting average, 4 home runs, and only 6 RBIs. The expectation is that this injury won’t require him to miss a large period of time, and that Yaz will regain his 2020 form and heat up as the season goes on.
