Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his return to the Giants' lineup Tuesday versus the Astros.

McCutchen missed one game with a bruised knee. The veteran outfielder has an underwhelming .243/.348/.385 batting line with three home runs, 19 RBI, and three stolen bases through 46 games this year.

An MRI taken Tuesday on Khris Davis' right groin revealed a Grade 1 strain.

That's the least-severe type of strain, but it's still usually a multi-week injury and the 30-year-old slugger will almost certainly be placed on the disabled list Wednesday. Davis suffered the injury on a swing in Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays and hasn't played since, so the move can be made retroactive to May 21. He's sitting on an .805 OPS, 13 home runs, and 38 RBI in 47 games.

Jean Segura jammed his shoulder on a head-first slide into home plate on Tuesday.

Segura ran hard into Jonathan Lucroy's leg while scoring the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning. He was icing the shoulder in the clubhouse afterward and indicated to reporters that he might not be able to play Wednesday, though this doesn't sound like anything too serious. The 28-year-old shortstop is batting .315 with three home runs, 33 RBI, 11 stolen bases and 33 runs scored in 46 games this season.

Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs batted in on Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Desmond drove in his first run on a solo shot off of Brock Stewart in the second inning, and he also had an RBI single in the sixth to briefly give the Rockies a 3-2 lead. He now has eight homers and 23 RBI on the season in 47 games, and Desmond is slashing .180/.233/.377 in that time frame.
May 23 - 1:19 AM

Chris Taylor went 1-for-3 with a homer and a walk in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Taylor's homer was a two-run shot off of Bryan Shaw, and it gives him six on the 2018 season. The versatile Taylor is now hitting .242/.322/.432 over 47 games, and he's driven in 18 runs and stole two bases in the process.
May 23 - 1:16 AM

Kenley Jansen pitched a scoreless ninth against the Rockies on Tuesday to pick up his ninth save of the season.

Jansen did allow one hit -- a ground-rule double to Chris Iannetta -- but he was able to keep Iannetta from crossing and didn't allow any other runners. After his infamous struggles out of the gate to being 2018, Jansen now has his ERA down to 3.05, and his WHIP drops to 1.11 on the year.

Chad Bettis gave up two runs over five innings with four strikeouts in a no decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Bettis really struggled in the first inning, giving up an RBI single to Matt Kemp and then walking in a run when he gave Yasiel Puig a free pass. Over his final four innings he was excellent, and he kept the Rockies in the game. Bettis needs a quality defense behind him, but he does possess a 3.30 ERA on the season along with a 1.20 WHIP. We'll see him back on the mound on Monday against the Giants.
May 23 - 1:10 AM

Brock Stewart gave up two runs over four innings in a start against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Stewart allowed five hits and a walk and struck out just one, but he was able to limit the damage to just the two runs on 63 pitches; 40 of them for strikes. In three games with the Dodgers in 2018, Stewart has a 3.72 ERA along with a 1.45 WHIP and six strikeouts over 9 2/3 innings. It's not yet known when he'll pitch again, but the Dodgers don't have scheduled starters for May 28 or June 2.
