Carlos Beltran out of Giants’ lineup for third straight game

Giving up a prospect as good as Zack Wheeler for Carlos Beltran was costly enough for the Giants when they thought they’d have him for 60 games, but a wrist injury has him out of the lineup today for the third straight game.

Beltran hit just .244 with a .616 OPS in 11 games for the Giants before spraining his right wrist Sunday afternoon. Nate Schierholtz, who had been subbing for Beltran, is also banged up, so today’s outfield is Aaron Rowand, Andres Torres, and Cody Ross.

San Francisco has tomorrow off, so the Giants are hoping he’ll be healthy enough to rejoin the lineup Friday against the Marlins. And if not, a disabled list stint might be required.

    When does the word “overrated” become part of Carlos Beltran headlines…kinda like how it was a part of the headline for another, much much much more successful trade that happened around the deadline?

    just saying…….

    Did the Dwarves get a receipt for that transaction? Or are they looking to pull a Leake next time they’re in Queens?

    Ohhhhhhhhhhh i get it. You switched “Giants” to the opposite of “Dwarves.”

    In all seriousness, are we 5 years old?

      Nope. (By the way, Dwarves is not the opposite of Giants—assuming that is what you were trying to say. 😛 )
