Giants place Mike Yastrzemski and Keaton Winn on IL, recall Luis Matos from Triple-A

Giants’ outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and pitcher Keaton Winn were placed on the injured list, the team announced on Saturday. 

San Francisco recalled outfielder Luis Matos and third baseman David Villar in corresponding moves. Tyler Fitzgerald was optioned to Triple-A. 

Yastrzemski left Thursday’s Rickwood Field game in the fourth inning and the team has diagnosed the 33-year-old with an oblique strain. He has been placed on the 10-day IL. 

Winn pitched 2 ⅔ innings and gave up five earned runs on Thursday. The Giants placed Winn on the 15-day IL with right elbow inflammation. 

The Giants could have some arms back in the clubhouse soon. Pitchers Robbie Ray and Blake Snell are scheduled to play in a rehab game with the Sacramento River Cats tomorrow. 

Ray hasn’t played yet this season since arriving in a trade with Seattle in January. He made one start in 2023 with the Mariners, but had to undergo Tommy John surgery, ending his season. 

Snell suffered a left groin strain earlier this month. He has struggled in his first season with the Giants, going 0-3 and recording a 9.51 ERA. 

LaMonte Wade Jr. will also be playing in a rehab game tomorrow in Sacramento. He strained his left hamstring in May.

Wade and the Giants put in a special request for the first baseman to come off the injured list early to play in Thursday’s Rickwood Field game, but MLB denied the team’s ask. 

Both Villar and Matos will get the start in today’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Matos won National League Player of the Week in mid-May, but struggled after as he hit .224 when he was optioned back to Triple-A in early June. 

In five games with the River Cats, Matos hit .321 and had five home runs.
