Happy weekend, baseball fans.
The San Francisco Giants made a flurry of moves on Friday. You’re used to that. Some of these moves were sad, though. Namely that outfielder Steven Duggar was placed on the 60-day Injured Last after injuring his oblique during Thursday’s loss to the New York Mets.
We knew Duggar, who had been a near everyday player in LaMonte Wade Jr.’s absence, was going to the IL. But we didn’t know it would be of the 60-day variety, and that’s a bummer.
We didn’t, however, know that Anthony DeSclafani was headed to the IL, but he is, though just the standard 10-day variety.
Taking their places on the roster were right-handed pitcher Jakob Junis and left-handed hitting outfielder Luis González. Duggar’s placement on the 60-day IL opened up a spot for González, who was not previously on the 40-man roster.
The Giants made the following roster moves today:— SFGiants (@SFGiants) April 22, 2022
• RHP Anthony DeSclafani placed on the 10-day IL
• OF Steven Duggar placed on the 60-day IL
• RHP Jakob Junis recalled from Triple-A Sacramento
• OF Luis González selected from Triple-A Sacramento
Heal up, Duggar and DeSclafani. And welcome, Junis and González.
