SF Giants have two frustrating injury developments for free agent signings

Starting with Jung Hoo Lee, the center fielder crashed into the wall in Sunday's game against the Reds and dislocated his shoulder. The play did not look pretty in the moment and it seemed more than likely that Lee would be out for a while. Those fears were confirmed on Tuesday.

According to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area, it was announced that Lee sustained structural damage to his left shoulder. It is not clear as of right now what that means for when we may see him on the field again, but it is not a great sign.

We will see a lot of Luis Matos filling in for Lee in center field as he will likely be out for a good chunk of the year. It will be interesting to see Matos get an extended look, but losing Lee. is a big gut punch as he was one of the few. exciting players to watch on the team.

Turning to Jorge Soler, his injury setback thankfully appears to be not as serious. Soler went on the IL due to a shoulder strain that was not seen as serious. However, as he took batting practice on Tuesday as he tries to rejoin the team, he fouled a ball off that hit the batting cage and then hit him in the head. Thankfully, it is reported that Soler is okay after the freak deflection.

Nonetheless, the injury developments with Lee and Soler just seemed like evidence that the Giants are cursed right now. Seemingly everyone is getting hurt and they are struggling to win games.

It is still fairly early in the season, but the Giants need to turn things around quickly if they want to get their season back on track.
