Giants' Conforto hits IL; Jung Hoo Lee injures shoulder

The San Francisco Giants placed outfielder Michael Conforto on the 10-day injured list Sunday, a day after he strained his right hamstring in a game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Shortly after the move, the Giants lost another outfielder, Jung Hoo Lee, to a left shoulder injury in the series finale against the Reds.

Lee, who signed a six-year, $113 million deal with the Giants in the offseason, slammed into the center-field wall at Oracle Park while chasing a long drive off the bat of Jeimer Candelario. Lee remained on the ground holding his left arm, which hit the top of the wall as he attempted to make a jumping catch, and eventually he needed assistance of Giants personnel to exit the field.

He was replaced in center by Tyler Fitzgerald in what was ultimately a 6-5 win in 10 innings.

"Not great," manager Bob Melvin said when asked how Lee was doing after the game.

Melvin described Lee's shoulder as "separated," though a Giants spokesperson later clarified the injury as a "dislocated" shoulder. Lee will get an MRI on Monday.

"When he hit the wall and went down and didn't get up, I didn't have a great feeling about it," Melvin said.

The Giants are razor-thin in the outfield because of injuries.

Conforto, who leads the team in home runs (7) and slugging percentage (.490), exited in the fourth inning Saturday after making a hard turn at first base following a one-out single. He appeared to grab at the back of his right thigh before leaving the field.

In his second season with the Giants after seven with the New York Mets, the 31-year-old Conforto is hitting .280 with 20 RBIs after going 1-for-2 on Saturday. He is a career .254 hitter with 154 home runs and 474 RBIs.

His injury came one day after center fielder Austin Slater left a game in the second inning with concussion symptoms after hitting an outfield wall while trying to make a catch. He remained out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds.

In Sunday's corresponding roster move, the Giants recalled outfielder Luis Matos from Triple-A Sacramento.
