San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (finger) saw a hand specialist on Wednesday, June 12, for the tendon injury in his pinkie that resulted from being hit by a pitch on Tuesday, June 11. He was told that surgery wasn't required for his case of "mallet finger" and that he didn't have to rule out a return to action once the swelling and pain subside, in a couple of days. The usual treatment options for this injury -- complete immobilization with a splint or the insertion of a pin -- wouldn't work if he tried to play, however. He's wearing a modified splint for the time being. If he doesn't keep the finger straight for four to six weeks, it would become deformed permanently. "I want to play. I also want to have a good finger. I don't want to live with a finger like this," said Scutaro. Manager Bruce Bochy is leaving it up to the player.
Fantasy Tip: Bochy seems to hope that Scutaro decides to gut it out, but the safe thing, perhaps even for his performance, would be to put him on the DL, even though he thinks how he grips a bat won't be affected. Fantasy owners will know more in a few days.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro (pinkie) said he hopes to be able to play as soon as the pain and swelling subside in his pinkie. Scutaro said the hand specialist gave him two options to fix the injury now, which would have meant he could miss a few months. The doctor also said Scutaro could play once the swelling and pain goes away and have the injury repaired after the season. He is talking with trainer Dave Groeschner and manager Bruce Bochy about his options.

San Francisco Giants 2B Marco Scutaro has something called "mallet finger," something that can sideline a player for six to eight weeks. There's a small chance that he can play through it, so the organization hasn't made a decision about its course of action yet. Manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that the infielder has a problem with a tendon and plans to discuss Scutaro's options with him.
Fantasy Tip: According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' Web site, it's also called "baseball finger" and occurs when the extensor tendon in a finger is damaged and causes a deformity. Scutaro has been quite a help in the batting average category, although not much else, this season, and this would be a somewhat significant blow to the team's offense. Nick Noonan and Tony Abreu appear to be the short-term options. Perhaps the Giants will consider calling up Kensuke Tanaka from Triple-A Fresno. The 22-year-old has posted a .316/.377/.396 slash line and 14 stolen bases through 53 games and would merit a look in NL-only leagues, at least.
