Giants' Sam Delaplane: Moves past forearm injury
Delaplane (forearm) has given up six runs on five hits and eight walks while striking out six over 2.2 innings at Single-A San Jose since being transferred to the affiliate May 13 after being activated from Triple-A Sacramento's 7-day injured list.
Delaplane missed the entire 2021 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and made only four appearances in the minors in 2022 while dealing with a related forearm issue that carried over into 2023. After missing the first five weeks of the current season, Delaplane received the green light to debut earlier this month, but he's struggled to find the strike zone thus far in his four outings. The 28-year-old right-hander will likely continue to make appearances in the lower levels of the minors until he shows improved control.... See More ... See Less

Giants' Sam Delaplane: Shut down again with forearm strain
The Giants have recalled Delaplane from Single-A Jose and placed him on the 60-day injured list with a right forearm strain, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Delaplane underwent Tommy John surgery in April 2021 and was non-tendered by the Giants in the offseason and later re-signed on a minor-league deal before he was added to the 40-man roster earlier this month. The 27-year-old began his rehab assignment at San Jose on May 28 and was expected to eventually settle at Double-A Richmond or Triple-A Sacramento, but that didn't come to fruition after he suffered an apparent setback with his surgically repaired elbow following his fourth rehab outing with the Single-A affiliate. He'll now be on the shelf for at least the next two months, and it's possible the Giants choose to shut him down for the season.... See More ... See Less
