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

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Oct 6, 2016 08:00:00 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is not on the Giants' roster for Wednesday's NL Wild Card game against the Mets.

It's not a big surprise, as Nunez suffered a right hamstring strain back on September 25 and was limited to a light workout Tuesday at Citi Field. Conor Gillaspie figures to fill in at the hot corner and obviously doesn't offer the same kind of speed against Noah Syndergaard. The Giants are carrying 14 position players and 11 pitchers for the die-or-die contest, including Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija.

Eduardo Nunez was limited to a light workout Tuesday and seems doubtful to start in Wednesday night's National League Wild Card Game.

Nunez jogged and then went right back into the visitors clubhouse at Citi Field, still limited by the right hamstring strain he suffered September 25 in San Diego. Look for Conor Gillaspie to start at third base Wednesday versus the Mets and Noah Syndergaard. Gillaspie did go 7-for-14 during San Francisco's season-ending homestand.
Tue, Oct 4, 2016 08:12:00 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will take swings and do some running on Tuesday.

Nunez hasn't played since September 25 due to a right hamstring injury. The Giants haven't officially ruled him out for Wednesday's Wild Card game against the Mets, but he sounds like a long shot right now.
Tue, Oct 4, 2016 03:40:00 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) remained out of the Giants' lineup Sunday.

He hasn't played since tweaking his right hamstring a week ago. Conor Gillaspie will fill in again a third base.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 12:36:00 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is questionable for this weekend's series against the Dodgers.

Nunez initially injured his right hamstring on a slide in Sunday's game against the Padres and subsequently underwent an MRI. While nothing major was discovered, there is obviously still some lingering discomfort. The newly-acquired Gordon Beckham could start in his place at third base if Nunez is unable to go this weekend. Conor Gillaspie is another option.
