Nunez (hamstring) may be activated as soon as he is eligible, which will be Friday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. An MRI on Nunez's hamstring found no structural damage, but the Giants didn't want to go without the extra infielder on their roster as they waited for the inflammation to go down. Look for him to be back in the lineup as the Giants begin a series in Pittsburgh against the Pirates on Friday.
Nunez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The move is retroactive to June 20, meaning Nunez may miss as little as a week. An MRI only found inflammation in Nunez's hamstring as opposed to a strain or other structural damage, so it's possible he'll be back as soon as he is eligible June 30.
Nunez (hamstring) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Braves, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. As expected, Nunez will be held out of Thursday's contest in order to rest his ailing hamstring. He plans to test it out before Friday's series opener against the Mets, at which point he could end up on the disabled list if he is still feeling discomfort. Kelby Tomlinson is starting at third base in his place Thursday.
Nunez's (hamstring) MRI came back clean Wednesday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Thankfully the MRI only showed inflammation in Nunez's ailing hamstring, although he's not out of the woods yet. He plans to test it out Friday, and if he feels any discomfort at that point, he could end up landing on the disabled list. This likely means he'll miss Thursday's contest but could return in time for Friday's series opener with the Mets if everything checks out. In the meantime, Aaron Hill and Kelby Tomlinson would be in line to pick up starts in his stead.
Nunez (hamstring) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Braves, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Nunez was able to play Monday's contest after sitting out all weekend with hamstring tightness, but it seems that the issue is still lingering enough to keep him out Wednesday. The results of the MRI taken on his ailing hamstring still haven't been revealed, although a timeline for his return should become clearer once the severity of his issue is known. Consider him day-to-day for now. Aaron Hill will man the hot corner to replace him Wednesday.
