Eduardo Nunez went 0-for-3 in the loss to the Royals on Wednesday.
Even with Denard Span sitting out and a lefty on the mound for Kansas City, Nunez was left in his usual sixth spot in the lineup tonight, while Aaron Hill led off. Nunez has been useful in fantasy leagues thus far, with a .286 average and five steals, but batting sixth means he's going to have to keep running a bunch to maintain his value. He currently has just five runs scored and four RBI through 15 games. Apr 19 - 10:55 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in Thursday’s loss to the Rockies.

Nunez did loft a sacrifice fly against Adam Ottavino in the seventh inning, but his was otherwise a relatively quiet day at the office. Relatively quiet days at the office are something of a rarity for Nunez these days, as he has already notched four multi-hit games, including one three-hit showing and one four-hit performance. Through his first 39 at-bats, he is hitting .359. That average is unlikely to sustain itself. Nunez has never hit higher than .288 in a full season of work.
Apr 14 - 5:20 AM

Eduardo Nunez had four hits in five at-bats Tuesday, pushing his average up to .389.

He also swiped his fifth base. Nunez is making his case to move up in the order, but the Giants still had him batting sixth Tuesday even with Buster Posey, Denard Span and Brandon Crawford all out of the lineup. One would think he should have at least been hitting ahead of Aaron Hill (batting fourth) and Nick Hundley (batting fifth). If Nunez had been hitting cleanup tonight, rather than Hill, the Giants might have won. As it was, Nunez never scored after reaching base four times tonight.
Apr 12 - 1:38 AM

Eduardo Nunez (shoulder) is back in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Nunez has been dealing with soreness in his right shoulder all camp and had a cortisone shot Wednesday. He's in the designated hitter spot Sunday but hopefully should be ready to resume third base duties soon. Nunez is optimistic he'll be ready to go on Opening Day, but it probably can't be considered a given.
Mar 26 - 11:32 AM

An MRI on Eduardo Nunez's right shoulder determined that surgery won't be necessary.

Nunez's right shoulder has bothered him all spring but at least he won't need surgery. He had a cortisone shot on Wednesday, which should dull the pain, at least temporarily. Nunez's goal is to be ready for Opening Day against the Diamondbacks on April 2. That gives him 10 days to get healthy.
Mar 23 - 6:45 PM

Eduardo Nunez (shoulder) had a cortisone shot and is expected to be out for the next 2-3 days.

Nunez has been bothered by right shoulder soreness throughout the spring. That has not alleviated yet. The 29-year-old infielder will take a little time to try to rest up before the final stretch run of spring training. Should this issue continue to linger, it could put Opening Day at risk. For now, rest.
Mar 22 - 7:09 PM

Eduardo Nunez (shoulder) has been cleared to play third base.

Nunez has been limited to designated hitter duties early on due to soreness in his right shoulder, but he's starting at third base against Puerto Rico on Wednesday. He should be fine moving forward.
Mar 8 - 9:52 AM

Eduardo Nunez (shoulder) will test out his right arm Tuesday in hopes of being cleared to play defense.

Nunez has been limited to five games at designated hitter this spring because of soreness in his right shoulder. It doesn't appear to be anything to be overly concerned about, but obviously it would be encouraging if he could get the clearance on Tuesday.
Mar 6 - 6:31 PM

Eduardo Nunez will be limited to DHing while he deals with a sore right shoulder.

He started feeling some tightness during a recent weight room session. Nunez said the injury isn't serious and insisted he'd be fine to play third base if it were the regular season. The Giants tentatively expect him to return to the field sometime next week. Nunez also said he needed five weeks to recover from a hamstring injury after last season but claims his hamstring is back to 100 percent.

Giants and INF Eduardo Nunez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.2 million contract.

It's the 29-year-old's final year of arbitration eligibility. Nunez is slated to handle third base for the Giants this season.
Jan 13 - 3:11 PM

Giants general manager Bobby Evans said he likes Eduardo Nunez as an everyday player.

Evans added, however, that he's not completely dismissing the acquisition of a new starting third baseman. Nunez, who's played all around the diamond in his career, slashed .288/.325/.432 with 16 home runs, 67 RBI, and 40 stolen bases in 141 games this season between Minnesota and San Francisco. He was limited to pinch-hitting in the NLDS because of a hamstring injury. 2017 will be Nunez's final season under contract.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) and Angel Pagan (back) may have to be placed on the disabled list.

Nunez has been bothered by hamstring troubles for nearly three weeks, but the Giants put him on their postseason roster in the hope that he might be able to contribute off the bench in the best-of-five NLDS. Nunez is 0-for-3 so far in three pinch-hitting appearances against the Cubs and has struggled to get down the first-base line when he puts the ball in play. Pagan was scratched from Game 2 with back spasms and remains out of the lineup Tuesday night. If the Giants survive Game 4 on Tuesday, look for some changes to the roster ahead of Game 5.
Tue, Oct 11, 2016 05:28:00 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will be available to pinch-hit against the Cubs Saturday in Game 2 of the NLDS.

Bochy admitted he was "concerned" after seeing Nunez limp down the first-base line in a pinch-hitting appearance on Friday. However Nunez will still be available off the bench for Game 2. Including tonight, Nunez has been out of the starting lineup for eight straight games. Conor Gillaspie will draw another start at third base on Saturday.
Sat, Oct 8, 2016 05:56:00 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is on the Giants' NLDS roster.

Nunez won't be ready to start in Game 1 on Friday, but obviously the Giants feel that he'll be well enough to contribute at some point during the series. He hasn't played in nearly two weeks due to a right hamstring injury. Cole Gillaspie should start Game 1 on Friday. Ty Blach also earned a spot for the Giants, knocking Steven Okert off the roster.
Fri, Oct 7, 2016 11:18:00 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will not be ready to start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Cubs.

Nunez wasn't on the Wild Card roster due to a lingering hamstring injury. It's still possible he'll be on the roster for the NLDS, but the Giants want to see how he gets through a workout on Thursday. Wild Card game hero Conor Gillaspie will continue to fill in for now.
