Parker (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Parker isn't close to a return after requiring surgery to repair a broken clavicle bone earlier in April, so the Giants decided to send him to the 60-day DL to free up a 40-man roster spot for Mike Morse. He'll be out until early-June at least, though a firmer timetable should become available as his rehab progresses. Gorkys Hernandez should see some reps in left field during his absence, though the Giants could also slot Mike Morse or Brandon Belt out there if needed.
Parker successfully underwent surgery to repair his broken clavicle, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Parker broke his clavicle while making a catch in Saturday's game, and had a procedure to repair the injury just a day later. The timeframe for his return is still unknown, but it should clear up as his rehab progresses. While he's out, look for Chris Marrero and Gorkys Hernandez to spend time in left field.
Parker was placed on the 10-day DL on Sunday due to a fractured right clavicle.
Parker sustained the injury while running into the outfield wall Saturday, so it was only a matter of time before he landed on the disabled list. Left-handed pitcher Steven Okert was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move to take his roster spot.
Parker has been diagnosed with a broken right clavicle after crashing into the outfield wall during Saturday's loss to the Rockies, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Parker hit the wall relatively hard and was immediately writhing in pain. The injury will likely send Parker to the DL, though the duration of his absence still isn't known. With the Giants outfield already depleted, his absence could open the door for recently signed Melvin Upton Jr. to earn playing time.
Parker appeared to injure his shoulder or collarbone after crashing into the outfield wall while making a spectacular catch Saturday.
There's no word yet on the specific injury, let alone its severity, but upon initial glance it looked really painful. The Giants are already shorthanded in the outfield, so a DL trip could open the door for to give someone like Melvin Upton Jr. a chance to play.
