The Giants have placed outfielder Mike Tauchman on the 10-day injured list with a right knee sprain. In a corresponding move, Jaylin Davis was promoted to the majors.
Tauchman has been a valuable member of the NL-best Giants ever since being traded from the Yankees earlier this season. Specifically, he has made numerous key plays defensively. His offense hasn't been as tremendous, though, as he's slashing just .180/.292/.295 through 52 games in San Francisco.
San Francisco outfielder Mike Tauchman will undergo an MRI on his knee on Wednesday after exiting Tuesday's game early with a mild right knee contusion.
Tauchman made a fantastic catch in right field in the second inning of Tuesday's game, robbing Walker Buehler of extra bases. He got twisted around while tracking the ball but was able to recover for the catch near the warning track. He was slow to get up afterward and eventually left the game in the fourth inning with was described as a "mild right knee contusion" but manager Gabe Kapler told reporters that it could be a sprain as well. The Giants, who are already missing Mike Yastrzemski, will eagerly await the results of Tauchman's MRI on Wednesday.
Outfielder Mike Tauchman went 1-for-6 with a three-run homer and five strikeouts as the Giants took down the Angels 9-3 in extra-innings on Wednesday.
Tauchman was really struggling in this game, notching five strikeouts over his first five at-bats of the game. He finally got things together and put a bow on the game with a three-run shot off of Junior Guerra to put San Francisco up 9-2 in the top of the 13th inning. The 30-year-old now owns a disappointing .173/.279/.287 with four home runs, 15 RBI, and three stolen bases over 150 at-bats between the Yankees and the Giants. He holds no fantasy value at this point in time.

Tauchman stepped up to the plate in the top of the eighth inning with two outs, the bases loaded, and the Giants trailing 4-2. He took a Josh Sborz offering barely over the wall in right field to notch the grand slam. The wall scraper was just his third homer of the season. Tauchman has been a disappointment this season, slashing a meager .190/.310/.298 with three home runs, 12 RBI, and three stolen bases across 121 at-bats between the Yankees and the Giants. There's no fantasy value to be had here.
