MLB: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

Hello and happy Saturday. I hope you’re not feeling too wiped out after spending all night partying and celebrating the San Francisco Giants thrilling win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants released two injury updates on Friday, and one is good. Unfortunately, the other is bad.

The good is that Wilmer Flores is progressing nicely, and is likely to be activated today.

The bad is that Darin Ruf, who exited Wednesday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, has a Grade 2 hamstring strain. He won’t be able to return for about a month.

Ruf has been one of the Giants best hitters this year, so that’s a pretty big hit, especially if Brandon Belt is out for an extended absence. But Flores returning could potentially help an offense that hasn’t been too exciting lately.
