Matt Duffy was replaced in the sixth inning of Monday afternoon's game after getting drilled by a 96 mph fastball, but X-rays came back negative.
Duffy was batting with two outs and one on in the top of the sixth when a Mike Foltynewicz fastball rode up and in and hit him flush on the left wrist. Duffy took a couple of steps out of the box and then bent down in pain. Trainer Dave Groeschner ran out to check on the third baseman. When Duffy held his hand up, his wrist was shaking. Per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Bruce Bochy expects Duffy to miss a game or two.
Kelby Tomlinson came in on a double-switch in the bottom half of the inning. The Giants would go on to lose 5-3 to the Atlanta Braves
Duffy is batting .242 in his second full big league season. He has gotten off to a slow start, but felt he found a mechanical fix on the last homestand that could get him back to his old self.
The Giants have survived a couple of injury scares this season. Hunter Pence avoided the DL after straining his hamstring and Brandon Belt missed just one game after an ugly looking ankle sprain. Angel Pagan is currently on the disabled list with a hamstring strain.
