Hello and happy Sunday.

On Saturday, the San Francisco Giants released some not so great news. Outfield prospect Alexander Canario dislocated his left shoulder at the Fall Instructionals, and suffered a torn labrum in the process. He underwent surgery to repair the shoulder, and will rehab in Arizona.

That’s certainly bad news, but there are some silver linings. Canario is a right-hander, so the surgery will be on his non-throwing arm. And this is at least near the start of the offseason, so he’ll have many months of rehab prior to next season.

It’s still bad news of course, but hopefully Canario gets back on the field quickly. Fangraphs ranks the 20-year old as the ninth-best prospect in the Giants system, with a future value of 45. He received high praise from players and coaches alike for his performance at the Alternate Training Site in 2020.

Elsewhere in Giants news, catcher Tyler Heineman signed a contract with his hometown team, the St. Louis Cardinals. Heineman was unlikely to play a role on the 2021 Giants, so it’s great to see him catching on elsewhere.
