Padres outfielder Kyle Blanks left this afternoon’s game against the Giants. He banged into the AT&T Park wall after making a great running catch on a Joaquin Arias fly ball. Jesus Guzman moved from first base to left field and Yonder Alonso entered the game at first base.

Blanks missed most of the 2012 season with a torn labrum and has missed at least 20 games on the disabled list dating back to 2010. He was enjoying some success at the plate, entering today’s game hitting .278 with a homer and an .864 OPS.

Update from MLB.com’s Corey Brock:

    Four stitches on his eyelid? Maybe that’s the injury you want to focus on here…

    Well hope he gets well soon.

      Yeah, I was watching this game here in NoCal. It looked pretty bad. I’m glad all he has is a cut to his eye. I thought he was out for a second.
