Victorino jammed his thumb on an awkward fall in center field against the Blue Jays on July 3. He’ll be eligible to return during the second series following the All-Star break.
Victorino was awarded the final spot on the National League roster yesterday by winning the All-Star Final Vote balloting, but now Giants manager Bruce Bochy will be tasked with naming a replacement. Andre Ethier finished in second place with the fan vote, so he’s the most logical choice here, though I wouldn’t complain if Andrew McCutchen got his just due. Ah, who am I kidding, he’ll probably take Barry Zito.
