Joaquin Arias Leaves Game With Arm Injury, X-Rays Negative

The San Francisco Giants have had to deal with plenty of injuries this season, and they saw yet another player go down on Tuesday night as they took on the Rockies at AT&T Park. Joaquin Arias has filled in at third base over the last week with Pablo Sandoval on the disabled listed with a broken bone in his wrist. Arias was hit in the wrist area by a pitch and left the game immediately.

Fortunately for the Giants, they received some good news following x-rays.

No timetable is given for his return, although it appears that Arias should return to the field sooner rather than later. Wrist injuries can always give a hitter issues as he attempts to regain full control of the bat, but the fact that there were no fractures in the area is great news for the team. I'd expect him back in the lineup within a day or two assuming there are no more setbacks.
