CF - SF - IL60
Giants center fielder Steven Duggar is continuing to rehab from the oblique strain he suffered on April 21st.
Duggar was placed on the 60-day IL after an MRI revealed a moderate oblique strain. He is not eligible to return until June 20th at the earliest, but is progressing toward that goal.
An MRI revealed that Giants outfielder Steven Duggar suffered a moderate oblique strain in Thursday's game.
Duggar is expected to miss at least a couple of months, as he is not eligible to return until June 20th. San Francisco called up Luis Gonzalez to take his place on the 40-man roster.
Giants OF Steven Duggar is dealing with a left oblique injury that will require a trip to the injured list, according to Giants manager Gabe Kapler. Duggar left Thursday's game against the Mets after appearing to injure himself swinging the bat.
If word comes out almost instantly that a player is headed to the injured list, then it's fair to assume the injury is at least somewhat significant. Through 11 games to start the season, Duggar is batting .200 with 2 R, 0 HR, 4 RBI, and 4 SB. Austin Slater and Mauricio Dubon will both likely see time in the outfield in Duggar's absence.
Giants centerfielder Steven Duggar drove in the lone run on a double in a 2-1 loss to the Marlins.

Outfielder Steven Duggar went 1-for-4 with a two-run triple and a strikeout as the Giants took out the Dodgers 6-4 on Sunday.
Duggar was back with the Giants on Sunday after getting recalled from Triple-A Sacramento. He was optioned back in early August in order to add some depth to the San Francisco bullpen. He delivered a big hit on Sunday, slicing a two-run triple off Walker Buehler in the bottom of the second inning to put the Giants up 3-1. The 27-year-old outfielder is now slashing .267/.339/.448 with seven home runs, 30 RBI, and six stolen bases over 221 at-bats. He should remain with the team for as long as Austin Slater (concussion) is on the IL.
