Update: Zito was experiencing soreness in his neck and upper body as a result of the accident and was scheduled to have an MRI on Thursday morning, Giants spokesman Jim Moorehead said.
The early word is that Zito, who is scheduled to make his regular-season debut Sunday, didn’t appear to be seriously hurt.
Lt. Ana Brackpool said officers are investigating the accident and that Zito is listed on the report as a “party to” the accident, which means that the officers did not deem him to be at fault.
With Jeff Suppan having been released, the Giants are dangerously short of starting pitching depth should they lose a hurler. Ryan Vogelsong would likely be the choice to step in if Zito requires a stay on the disabled list.
