Giants OF Michael Conforto (hamstring) on IL; Jung Hoo Lee hurt

Michael Conforto

San Francisco Giants oufielder Michael Conforto landed on the 10-day IL before outfielder Jung Hoo Lee left Sunday’s game with a separated left shoulder.

Conforto was injured in Saturday night’s 5-1 win over the visiting Cincinnati Reds, exiting in the fourth inning with a right hamstring strain. The Giants recalled outfielder Luis Matos from Triple-A Sacramento to fill Conforto’s roster spot.

Pursuing a first-inning drive by Jeimer Candelario, Lee slammed into the center field wall and remained on the ground after hitting his left arm on the top of the wall. Lee, who was unable to make the grab, was assisted off the field by Giants personnel. Tyler Fitzgerald replaced Lee in center field.

San Francisco manager Bob Melvin said Lee will undergo an MRI exam.

In his second season with the Giants, Conforto, 31, was slashing .280/.331/.490 at the time of his injury with seven homers and 20 RBIs in 38 games. The 2014 first-round pick of the New York Mets has hit .254 with 154 homers and 474 RBIs with the Mets (2015-21) and Giants (2023-24).

The 25-year-old Lee is in his first season with the Giants after signing a six-year, $113 million deal in the offseason. In 37 games this season, he has hit .262 with two homers and eight RBIs.
