Nate Schierholtz fouled a ball off his right foot Sunday and an MRI exam Monday revealed a fracture, but the Giants outfielder is apparently going to play through the injury.
Schierholtz told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that his foot felt much better yesterday and doctors have assured him there’s no further risk of injury, so he’s hoping to be available again after taking a couple more days off.
Schierholtz had been playing nearly every day as the Giants’ primary right fielder, but with Carlos Beltran finally healthy again his role was going to be significantly diminished even before the fracture.
