Not surprisingly the gruesome-looking finger injury that Marco Scutaro suffered last night turns out to be pretty serious, as the Giants announced that he has tendon damage called “mallet finger.” Seriously, there’s a Wikipedia page about it and everything.

The typical recovery timetable is 6-8 weeks, but Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that the Giants have yet to place Scutaro on the disabled list because there’s some hope that he can play through the injury.

In the meantime Tony Abreu is starting at second base and batting second in the Giants’ lineup tonight.

    Could he play through the injury? Sure, Scutaro seems like a tough guy. Could he play well? That’s the real question. As the Nats learned with Danny Espinosa, sometimes just because a guy can play through an injury doesn’t mean he should.

    Our depth really sucks.

    He can play through it, if by that you mean shooting it up so he can stand putting a glove on. The real question is his bat. The little finger on your “off” hand is what you lead the bat with.

    Wow, on the D.L, once that happens the ballot stuffing SF fans will vote this mediocre player to the all star game without issue…….

      Yeah, those damn balloting stuffing SF fans sure screwed up the game last year for the N.L. Oh wait, that’s right-the N.L. shutout the A.L. 8-0. Cabrera was the MVP, Cain was the winning pitcher, and Sandoval broke the game open in the first driving in 3 runs of of Verlander. Certainly wouldn’t want any of that to happen again if you’re an N.L. fan……
