Basabe was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain Wednesday.
Basabe exited Tuesday's game with an injury, and he'll be sidelined for the remainder of the regular season. He'd be eligible to return in early October if the Giants make a run in the postseason, although the severity of his injury isn't yet known. Steven Duggar was recalled by the Giants to serve as outfield depth.
Basabe left Tuesday's game against the Rockies with an apparently leg injury, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 24-year-old hit a grounder in his first at-bat Tuesday and appeared to tweak something as he was thrown out at first base. Brandon Crawford entered the game at shortstop while Daniel Robertson shifted to the outfield. Basabe should be considered day-to-day until more is known on the injury.
Basabe went 1-for-4 with an RBI single, a stolen base, a run scored and a walk in Sunday's 14-2 win over the Athletics.
Basabe drew a walk in the third inning, stole second and scored on Chadwick Tromp's homer. In the ninth, Basabe's single knocked in Mauricio Dubon. All three of Basabe's non-successful plate appearances were strikeouts. The 24-year-old is now 2-for-10 with four runs scored, an RBI, two stolen bases and three walks in seven games played.
Basabe went 1-for-2 with two walks, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Giants' 6-4 victory over the Mariners on Thursday.
Basabe came in for the injured Mike Yastrzemski (calf) and contributed across the box score. There could be at-bats available for Basabe if Yastrzemski is forced to miss additional time.
Basabe was recalled from the alternate training site Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 24-year-old made his big-league debut as a pinch runner Aug. 27 while serving as the 29th man for a doubleheader, and he'll rejoin the active roster. Basabe could receive his first major-league at-bat in the coming days.
The Giants optioned Basabe to their alternate training site Friday.
Basabe made his MLB debut in the second half of last Thursday's doubleheader with the Dodgers, entering the contest as a pinch runner but making no plate appearances. Since he joined the Giants as the 29th man for the twin bill, he was demoted a day later as San Francisco reduced its roster to the normal 28.
Basabe was added to the Giants' active roster as the 29th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.
Basabe was acquired by the Giants earlier in August after being designated for assignment by the White Sox, and he'll be available for the major-league club Thursday. However, he'll likely return to the alternate site following the twin bill.
Basabe was acquired by the Giants from the White Sox on Sunday in exchange for cash considerations.
The 23-year-old was designated for assignment by Chicago on Tuesday, but he'll now receive a chance on San Francisco's 40-man roster. Basabe was ranked among the White Sox's top-20 prospects and should garner a similar ranking with his new team. He had a .246/.324/.336 slash line in 69 games last season at Double-A and will report to the Giants' alternate training site.
Basabe was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Tuesday.
The move creates a spot on the 40-man roster for the White Sox to select Brady Lail's contract. The 23-year-old outfielder is at least a moderately interesting prospect and could generate interest on the waiver wire, though his profile is considerably less impressive to teams that don't think he can stick in center field, something that appears questionable despite his speed. He posted an unimpressive .246/.324/.336 slash line in 69 games for Double-A Birmingham last season.
Basabe suffered a bruised right foot in camp, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
It's unclear exactly when or how Basabe suffered the injury, but he's considered day-to-day as he recovers, and Luis Gonzalez was brought up from the team's alternate camp to take his place in his absence. Basabe was no lock to make the major-league roster, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the team use extra caution in the coming days to protect his long-term health.
The White Sox announced Monday that Basabe will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.
Though Basabe will join the big club when it resumes workouts Friday, he's unlikely to see more than a handful of at-bats with the White Sox in 2020, assuming the team's outfield stays reasonably healthy. The 23-year-old switch hitter struggled during a repeat season at Double-A Birmingham in 2019, batting .246 with three home runs and nine steals over 291 plate appearances.
Basabe was optioned to Double-A Birmingham, Lamond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports. He hit .267 (4-for-15) with three walks, an RBI and four runs scored during his time in major league camp.
Basabe's career has stalled at Birmingham. He's spent 130 games with the Barons over the past two seasons and posted a .695 OPS while successfully stealing 18 bases on 26 attempts. Injuries have played a role, but solving pitchers at the upper level of the minors has also proven to be a challenge. Even with an improved BABIP, Basabe's batting average has stagnated while his power has diminished since he advanced to Double-A. The 23-year-old switch hitter needs to put together a full year with good results, or he'll fall off the prospect radar come 2021.
Basabe (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday.
Basabe wound up missing 10 days with quadriceps tightness. He'll be looking to improve upon his unimpressive .227/.312/.268 slash line in his return to action.
Basabe was placed on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Birmingham with left quad tightness Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The assignment was made retroactive to June 1, so Basabe will be eligible to return as soon as this Saturday. It's unclear if he's expected to do so. The 22-year-old has hit .227/.312/.268 in 26 games for the Barons this season after missing the beginning of the year while recovering from a broken hand.
Basabe (hand) has gone 1-for-8 with one walk, two strikeouts and one RBI in two games with Double-A Birmingham since his return from the 7-day injured list.
The 22-year-old outfielder played in five rehab games with Low-A Kannapolis, going 5-for-20 with one extra-base hit and four walks against seven strikeouts. Basabe played in 61 games with Birmingham last year and was 11 percent better than league average offensively despite a 28.1 percent strikeout rate. He will need to make more consistent contact as he moves up the ladder in order to let the tools shine through.
Basabe (hand) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Kannapolis on Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Basabe, one of the White Sox's top prospects, underwent surgery in late February to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left hand. Once fully healthy, he will report to Double-A Birmingham.
Basabe (hand) was optioned to Double-A Birmingham.
Not only does Basabe need more development in the minor leagues, but he will also be out until at least May while he recovers from a broken hand. It is possible he could finish the year at Triple-A.
Basabse (hand) will undergo surgery Monday, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Basabe fractured the hamate bone in his left hand while swinging a bat earlier this week. Surgery had been scheduled for Wednesday but was pushed back to Monday of next week. The White Sox anticipate being without him for three months, and he could feel the impact of the injury beyond his return in terms of power. The 22-year-old outfielder began tapping into that power last season, when he launched a career-high 15 home runs between High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham.
Basabe suffered a broken hamate bone in his left hand and will be sidelined for approximately 12 weeks, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Basabe apparently suffered the injury during batting practice earlier in the week. He's scheduled to have surgery in Chicago on Wednesday, during which his hamate bone will be removed. If everything goes as planned, the 22-year-old will resume baseball activities in 4-to-6 weeks, putting him on track for a return to game action around mid-May. Once healthy, Basabe will likely report to Double-A Birmingham.
Basabe was promoted to Double-A Birmingham on Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
After making stops at High-A Winston-Salem in each of the past three seasons, Basabe will finally get his first taste of Double-A ball. The 21-year-old hit a solid .266/.370/.502 with nine homers and seven stolen bases in 58 games with the Dash before being rewarded with a promotion.
