San Francisco Giants Injury News: Outfielder to undergo MRI after groin injury; 3-time All-Star remains on track to return to lineup soon

The San Francisco Giants have had bad injury luck to start the 2022 season but have been one of the top teams in the MLB despite those injuries. Nine-year veteran Joc Pederson recently suffered a groin injury that will require an MRI to determine the severity. Evan Longoria is four weeks removed from finger surgery and should be returning to the lineup soon.

The team and its fans are waiting with bated breath for news on Joc Pederson, who has been scorching hot to start the season with a batting average of .353 and six home runs. Any time away from the team is unfortunate, but hopefully his absence will be limited to just a few days, so he can get back to doing what he does best.

Gabe Kapler, manager of the San Francisco Giants, provided an update on Joc Pederson’s injury to the media, posted by NBC Sports on Twitter.

Evan Longoria has been recovering from finger surgery for the last four weeks and has been steadily improving. The timetable for the return of the three-time All-Star was initially set at 4-6 weeks, so he is perfectly on pace for where he should be.

Danny Emerman reported on Evan Longoria’s status via a tweet.

The return of Evan Longoria to the San Francisco Giants should elevate their stellar offense even further.
