  • Giants' Joc Pederson: On bench against lefty

    Pederson will sit against lefty Austin Gomber and the Rockies on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Pederson hasn't made a single start against a southpaw this season. Considering his career 67 wRC+ against lefties and the Giants' affinity for platoons, that setup is unlikely to change any time soon. Austin Slater will get the start in left field.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Remains out Sunday

    Pederson (groin) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Nationals, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    It's the third straight game on the bench for Pederson, who was diagnosed with a Grade 1 adductor strain after leaving Wednesday's game versus the A's. Pederson will now have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially missing additional time.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: Diagnosed with Grade 1 strain

    Pederson was diagnosed with a Grade 1 adductor strain Friday but will avoid the injured list for now, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Pederson underwent an MRI on Thursday after leaving Wednesday's game against Oakland with right groin tightness. While the test did reveal a strain, it's not a particularly severe one. The Giants will wait to see how the injury responds over the next few days, so he'll likely miss at least two or three games, but he may not wind up missing any more time than that.

  • Giants' Joc Pederson: MRI on tap, could hit IL

    Pederson (groin) will undergo an MRI on Thursday, and manager Gabe Kapler said a trip to the injured list could be necessary, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Pederson experienced groin tightness while breaking for second base on a ground ball during the third inning Wednesday, and his availability for the near future is now in question. The 30-year-old will have Thursday's scheduled off day to be evaluated, so the Giants have some time to determine whether a trip to the injured list is necessary. The team is already short-handed in the outfield with LaMonte Wade (knee) on the 10-day IL and Mike Yastrzemski (illness) on the COVID-19 IL.
