  • Giants' Austin Slater: Notches homer, steal in finale

    Slater went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Monday's 8-1 victory versus the Padres.

    Slater enjoyed a nice end to his season, swatting his seventh homer and swiping his 12th bag in the win. The veteran outfielder wrapped up 2022 with a .264/.366/.408 slash line over 125 games. He worked mostly in a platoon role this season and could do so again next year.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Homers as pinch hitter

    Slater went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks.

    Slater entered the game as a pinch hitter for LaMonte Wade in the seventh inning, and the switch paid off. Slater went yard to give the Giants a short-lived 2-1 lead. The outfielder has gone 4-for-8 with a homer and a double across his last four games, though he's slipped back into a short-side platoon role down the stretch after returning from a hand injury. He's slashing .265/.368/.403 with six homers, 33 RBI, 48 runs scored and 11 stolen bases through 315 plate appearances this season.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Back in action

    Slater (hand) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Monday's game against Colorado, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Slater has spent the last few weeks on the IL due to a left hand sprain, but he ramped up baseball activities over the weekend and has since been activated. He figures to serve as outfield depth down the stretch for San Francisco.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Resumes baseball activities

    Slater (hand) has resumed hitting and fielding fly balls, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Slater landed on the 10-day injured list with a left hand sprain in early September, but he said Saturday that he hopes to return during the Giants' upcoming road trip, which begins Monday. While it's not yet clear which day he'll be activated, he's certainly trending in the right direction.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Heads to 10-day IL

    The Giants placed Slater on the 10-day injured list Monday with a left hand sprain.

    He suffered a dislocated left pinkie finger early last week, and while he played in some games since then as a defensive replacement and pinch runner, he hadn't logged any at-bats. Perhaps Slater sprained his hand in one of the games he appeared in off the bench, or his pinkie injury was re-diagnosed. Slater will be eligible to return Sept. 14 against Atlanta.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Still out Monday

    Slater (finger) remains out of action Monday against the Dodgers.

    While Slater isn't an everyday player, he starts against most lefties, so it's notable that he is sitting with southpaw Andrew Heaney on the hill for the Dodgers. Lewis Brinson is getting the start in center field and leading off.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Still not starting

    Slater (finger) isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

    Slater is out of the lineup for a third consecutive matchup, but he's come off the bench in the last two games. It wouldn't be surprising to see him available in a depth capacity once again Saturday.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Remains out of lineup

    Slater (finger) isn't starting Friday against the Phillies, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Slater dislocated his left pinky finger Tuesday against the Padres and will be held out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. His availability off the bench isn't yet clear, but Mike Yastrzemski will start in center field and bat second.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Ruled out for Wednesday

    Slater will get an MRI on his dislocated left pinky finger Wednesday and won't start in the series finale versus the Padres, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    The Giants have an off day Thursday, so Slater's unlikely to be back before Friday's series opener versus the Phillies. His availability for that game will likely be determined after the results of his MRI come back. Mike Yastrzemski will likely handle center field in Slater's absence.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Suffers dislocated finger

    Slater was diagnosed with a dislocated left pinky finger after leaving Tuesday's game against the Padres, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Slater walked during the opening frame and was caught off first base on a pickoff, and he dislocated his pinky on a head-first slide into second base. The 29-year-old should be considered day-to-day heading into Wednesday's series finale versus San Diego.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Registers 10th steal

    Slater went 1-for-2 with two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 7-4 loss to the Rockies.

    Slater provided the Giants' last two runs of the game with a pinch hit two-run single in the seventh inning. He stole second but was left on base, and he struck out in the ninth to end the contest. The outfielder has hit safely in three of his last four games, but he's batting just .167 (7-for-42) with four RBI, three runs scored and four steals in 16 games in August. For the season, he owns a .267/.371/.396 slash line with 10 steals, five home runs, 28 RBI and 39 runs scored through 264 plate appearances. He'll likely remain limited to a short-side platoon role in the Giants' lefty-heavy outfield.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Doubles, swipes bag

    Slater went 1-for-2 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and an RBI in a 6-4 win Sunday in Oakland.

    Slater pinch hit for Joc Pederson in the fifth inning and drove in a run with a double. He also walked in the ninth and stole second. He is now 9-for-9 in stolen-base attempts and 40-for-43 in his big-league career. The double was just his second hit this month, as he's 2-for-21 in six appearances. He has a well above-average 12.6 percent walk rate this season and a .372 OBP.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Logs eighth steal Saturday

    Slater went 0-for-1 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Athletics.

    Slater entered the game as a pinch hitter, drew a walk, stole second and scored in the sixth inning. With a stolen base in each of his last two games, Slater is up to eight thefts without getting caught this season. He's maintained a .267/.369/.406 slash line with five home runs, 24 RBI and 37 runs scored in mainly a short-side platoon role.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Swipes bag in Thursday's loss

    Slater went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Dodgers.

    Slater has started six straight games, but he hasn't made the most of the uptick in playing time by going a meager 3-for-26 (.115) in that span. The Giants have faced five left-handers in that span, accounting for much of Slater's extra time in the lineup. The speedster is up to seven stolen bases while adding five home runs, 24 RBI, 36 runs scored and a .269/.368/.408 slash line through 85 contests.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Gets sixth straight start

    Slater will start in left field and bat leadoff in Thursday's game against the Dodgers.

    The righty-hitting Slater will stick in the lineup for a sixth consecutive game, though it's worth noting that the Giants have faced five southpaws during that stretch. Even with Joc Pederson (concussion) on the injured list and with Darin Ruf having recently been traded to the Mets, Slater is still expected to serve largely as a short-side platoon option in the outfield for San Francisco.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Back on bench versus righty

    Slater is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Slater had started in center field in all but one of the Giants' first six games out of the All-Star break, going 2-for-17 with three walks over that stretch. He benefited from the Giants facing a heavy slate of left-handed pitching, but Slater will be on the bench Wednesday against a right-hander (Zac Gallen). Expect Slater to continue filling a short-side platoon role in the outfield while lefties Joc Pederson, Mike Yastrzemski, Luis Gonzalez and LaMonte Wade all slot in ahead of him in the pecking order versus right-handed pitching.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Remains in short-side platoon role

    Slater is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Slater closed the first half by starting in five of the Giants' last six games, but he benefited from the team opposing three left-handed starting pitchers in that stretch. With all of Joc Pederson, Mike Yastrzemski, Luis Gonzalez and LaMonte Wade healthy and available heading into the second half of the season, Slater will remain stuck in a short-side platoon role.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: On base four times Sunday

    Slater went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and two runs scored in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Brewers.

    For the second time in three games, Slater got aboard four times. He's hitting .455 (20-for-44) in July, and the strong hitting has allowed him to snag a couple of starts against right-handed pitchers in the last week. The outfielder's surge has his season slash line up to .303/.406/.461 with five home runs, 22 RBI, 32 runs scored, six stolen bases, five doubles and two triples this year. Manager Gabe Kapler is still likely to platoon Slater, though he could push for more playing time if LaMonte Wade and Luis Gonzalez continue to struggle after the All-Star break.

  • Giants' Austin Slater: Continues strong month

    Slater went 4-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 8-5 win over the Brewers.

    All four of Slater's hits were singles. He's now logged six multi-hit efforts in July, and he's added three stolen bases this month, giving him six thefts on the year. The outfielder owns a .297/.398/.455 slash line with five home runs, 22 RBI and 30 runs scored through 171 plate appearances this season. Friday was just his seventh start of the year against a right-handed pitcher -- he's regularly hit leadoff against southpaws and often appears as a pinch hitter or defensive replacement in games he doesn't start.
