The Giants have been unfortunate to lose several key position players as well. Let's see how they are doing.

LaMonte Wade Jr.

Losing Wade Jr. really hurt for the Giants. He has been such a key contributor on offense with his ability to get on base and deliver clutch hits. He also is underrated with his abilities on defense. He is currently nursing a hamstring injury. He has begun his rehab in Arizona and has begun to throw and hit. The Giants are hopinng they can get him back towards the end of June or in early July.

Nick Ahmed

The Giants have cycled through a lot of different shortstops since Ahmed injured his wrist. While Ahmed does not do much with the bat, he is. certainly the best defensive shortstop that the team has. He has resumed full baseball activities in Arizona so we may see him back in the big leagues not too far from now. As of right now it seems like Casey Schmitt would be the most likely candidated to be sent down to make room for him.

Marco Luciano

One of the players the Giants had replace Ahmed was Marco Luciano. He struggled defensively and eventually injured his hamstring. He is currently continuing all baseball activities, but it is fair to wonder when we will see him in the big leagues again. His shaky showing this season may make the Giants keep him in the minors to develop further.

Tom Murphy

Catcher Tom Murphy injured himself in a rainy and sloppy game in Philadelphia. He is continuing to rehab from that left knee sprain, but the Giants are probably content with their catching combo right now of Patrick Bailey and Curt Casali so they may not rush him back.

There are the injury updates for the Giants. Let's hope they can get some of these guys back soon.
