Weekend BP: Michael Conforto to avoid x-rays

Good injury news!

Happy weekend, San Francisco Giants fans.

The Giants started the second half of the season in style, winning a thrilling 6-4 game over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night to kick off an 11-game road trip. One of the stars was right fielder Michael Conforto, who had two hits, reached base three times, had a huge two-run single, and stole a base.

But he also gave us cause for concern. Conforto led off the ninth inning by getting hit by a pitch, and was replaced by pinch-runner Brett Wisely. With Thairo Estrada and Mitch Haniger both on the Injured List because of getting plunked, it was fair to start to worry.

Thankfully it seems that everything is fine. After the game, the Giants revealed that Conforto won’t be getting x-rays, which suggests there’s nothing serious going on.

It wouldn’t be surprising if Conforto gets a day off to fully heal up, but it looks like he should be good going forward.

What time do the Giants play this weekend?

The Giants conclude their series against the Pirates this weekend with a Saturday game at 4:05 p.m. PT and a Sunday morning game at 9:05 a.m. PT.
