Dan Runzler’s Shot At Being On The Opening Day Roster In Trouble

By Bryan Rose

It wouldn’t be Giants baseball without injuries, right?

According to John Shea, Dan Runzler is set to have his left shoulder examined after lingering pain:

"#SFGiants off day, but there’s news: LH Dan Runzler being examined for shoulder ailment. Was to challenge RH Clay Hensley for last pen spot."

As Shea noted, Rev Runz wasn’t guaranteed anything in terms of a roster spot, especially with both Javier Lopez and Jeremy Affeldt handling the “loogy” qualifications – but a setback is the last thing he or the Giants needed.

More detailed reports on the injury should be available tomorrow.
