San Francisco Giants left fielder Jarrett Parker injured his right shoulder after making a brilliant leaping catch, crashing against the wall, to end the fourth inning.
After Parker made the catch, he fell to the ground and grabbed his right shoulder. From the look on his face, the injury seemed serious. Later, the Giants confirmed it was serious, as it has been announced he has a broken clavicle.
He was immediately taken out of the game and replaced by Aaron Hill, who then moved to third as Marrero came in to play left.
The Giants figure to go with Chris Marrero in the lineup, since Parker has to go on the disabled list. They might expedite Melvin Upton Jr. to the big league club, who they just signed to a minor-league deal. But he’s expected to start in AAA Sacramento.
