Injury report: Jung Hoo Lee placed on 10-day IL with dislocated shoulder



A day after Giants center-fielder Jung Hoo Lee left Sunday’s game in the top of the first after crashing into the center-field wall, the Giants provided more clarity on the rookie’s injury status. The team reported on Monday afternoon that Lee suffered a dislocated shoulder, and has been officially placed on the 10-day injured list. Catcher Jackson Reetz has been recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in his place.

Lee is just the latest Giants starting position player to go down. He joins the undesirable list populated with the likes of Michael Conforto, Austin Slater, Blake Snell, Jorge Soler, Nick Ahmed, Tom Murphy, and the recently activated Patrick Bailey, who won’t play for a second straight game tonight as he recovers from a viral illness. The Giants enjoyed relative health during the first six weeks of the season, but are now stretched extremely thin as they welcome the Dodgers to Oracle Park this week.

Lee will be missed more than his numbers indicate. The rookie center fielder is hitting .262 with a pair of home runs and eight runs driven in, but advanced metrics show that those results were due for a change for the better. Expect some combination of Mike Yastrzemski, Tyler Fitzgerald, Luis Matos and Heliot Ramos to make up the outfield in the coming week.
