Giants' Austin Slater: Reaches base five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 2-for-2 with a home run, three walks, a stolen base, two runs and an RBI in a win over Colorado on Tuesday.

Slater came up big out of the leadoff spot in a crucial game for San Francisco, setting the table by reaching base in each of his five plate appearances. The 27-year-old began the home half of the first inning with a solo shot to left field and scored again following a single in the seventh. Slater has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign, slashing .324/.442/.592 with five home runs and eight stolen bases.

Giants' Austin Slater: Heads to bench vs. righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

After being reinstated from the injured list, Slater served as the Giants' designated hitter and leadoff man both of the past two days, going a combined 2-for-9 with a double and a run. Both of those starts came versus left-handed pitching, but he'll retreat to the bench with a right-hander (Zac Gallen) on the hill for Arizona in the series finale.

Giants' Austin Slater: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (groin) was activated from the injured list Saturday and will lead off and serve as the designated hitter against Arizona, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Slater wound up missing two weeks with a strained groin. He'd hit an impressive .347/.458/.653 over 59 plate appearances prior to the injury and should feature in the lineup on a regular basis if he can maintain anything close to that form, though it's worth noting that those numbers come with a .406 BABIP.

Giants' Austin Slater: Nearly ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (groin) has been swinging and throwing at the Giants' alternate training site and is nearly ready to return to action, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Slater was hitting .347/.458/.653 in 59 plate appearances before straining his groin in late August. A precise timeline for his return hasn't been offered, but it doesn't sound as though he'll miss too many more games.

Giants' Austin Slater: Beginning to ramp up in Sacramento
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Slater (groin) is "progressing nicely" and is set to "begin ramping up his baseball activities" Monday at the Giants' alternate training site in Sacramento, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater looks to have just about moved past the strained left groin he suffered Aug. 21, but he'll still likely need at least a few more days' worth of workouts before the Giants feel comfortable activating him. Before going down with the injury, Slater had been a sneaky source of power and speed in a part-time role, supplying four home runs and six stolen bases over his 59 plate appearances.

Giants' Austin Slater: Nearing baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (groin/elbow) will begin baseball activities this weekend, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

His right elbow flexor strain is doing well and he has continued to throw without issues. Slater has been receiving treatments the last few days on his mild left groin strain and is making progress. It sounds like he could return sometime next week if all goes well.

Giants' Austin Slater: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a mild left groin strain, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater left Friday's game without making it through the first inning. He has been a pleasant surprise for the Giants at the plate this season, hitting .347/.458/.653 with four home runs six RBI, and six stolen bases across 59 plate appearances. Although this is Slater's first trip to the injured list in 2020, the outfielder has already missed some time this season with a right elbow flexor strain.

Giants' Austin Slater: Dealing with left groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater suffered a left groin strain in Friday's win against the Diamondbacks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater exited Friday's game in the first inning, and the initial diagnosis is a left groin strain. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday that could help to determine the severity of the issue. It's unclear whether the 27-year-old will miss any additional time as a result.

Giants' Austin Slater: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater left Friday's game against the Diamondbacks in the bottom of the first inning with an apparent injury, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Slater recently returned from an elbow injury that left him sidelined for three contests. While the nature and severity of his new injury aren't clear, he appeared to have tweaked something in his lower body. Darin Ruf replaced him in Friday's contest.

Giants' Austin Slater: Goes deep in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Wednesday's win over the Angels.

Slater missed three games with a right elbow flexor strain, but he didn't show any lingering effects of the injury -- he notched his fifth multi-hit game of the campaign and also took Patrick Sandoval deep in the fourth inning for his fourth home run of the season. Slater, who is slated to remain as a DH for the next couple of days, is now hitting .333 with a 1.193 OPS, four home runs and four stolen bases in 13 games this month.

Giants' Austin Slater: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater (elbow) is starting at DH and hitting leadoff Wednesday against the Angels, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Slater is good to go after missing a trio of games with a right elbow flexor strain. The 27-year-old, who is hitting .317 with three home runs and five steals through 16 games, will face lefty Patrick Sandoval in his first game back. According to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area, Slater is still a few days away from receiving clearance to play the field.

Giants' Austin Slater: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater is day-to-day with a right elbow flexor strain, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Slater was diagnosed with the injury Wednesday, but he was able to return to the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup with Oakland. Despite this, it appears the issue is still bothering him enough to keep him on the bench for Monday's clash. It's unclear at this time whether Slater will be cleared to play in the second game of the series Tuesday against the Angels.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater was unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Astros due to right elbow soreness, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The 27-year-old was included in the Giants' original lineup Wednesday, but he was a late scratch because of the injury. Slater will have Thursday's scheduled off day to recover before potentially missing any additional games.

Giants' Austin Slater: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater was scratched from Wednesday's lineup for an undisclosed reason, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The Giants didn't provide a reason for Slater's late removal from the lineup, and it's unclear whether he'll miss any additional time. If his absence is due to an injury, he'll get an extra day to recover since the Giants have a day off Thursday. Hunter Pence will play right field with Wilmer Flores starting as the designated hitter.

Giants' Austin Slater: Homers and steals base in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Slater went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a stolen base, and a hit-by-pitch in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Astros.

Slater was hit by Astros starter Lance McCullers in the third inning and he would promptly pick up his fourth steal of the season. Slater also went deep off reliever Josh James to get the Giants on the board in the eighth. The right fielder has three homers, three steals, three RBI and four runs scored in his last four games.

The outfielder was also hit by a Walker Buehler fastball in the fifth, and he came around to score on Mike Yastrzemski's two-run single.
