Hello and happy Tuesday.

According to a report from Marc Delucchi, San Francisco Giants outfield prospect Hunter Bishop recently suffered a setback to his injured left shoulder. Delucchi reports that Bishop was nearing a return to the High-A Eugene Emeralds when he re-aggravated his shoulder strain in a rehab game. The timeline for his return is unknown.

It’s been a tough start to his professional career for the 2019 first-round pick, as he lost the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, and only played in three games with the Emeralds before suffering the injury. The future is still bright for him — he was voted as the team’s No. 4 prospect in our Community Prospect List — but has only 161 Minor League Plate appearances after being drafted nearly two years ago.

Here’s hoping he’s back on the field soon.
