Giants of Jung Hoo Lee suffer shoulder in win vs Reds

The San Francisco Giants celebrated a 6-5 10-inning walk-off victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Mother's Day, but their celebration was dampened after the game's opening free-agent signing Jung Hoo Lee.

Lee sprained his left shoulder in the first inning while jumping for a double by the Reds' Jaime Candelario. Lee's hand hit the wall while jumping for a ball hit over the right-center field wall, and he caught it with immediate discomfort.

Lee, in his first MLB season after signing a six-year, $113 million contract with the Giants last winter, was carted off the field after sitting for several minutes in the outfield dirt with a trainer holding his left wrist.

When manager Bob Melvin asked Lee how he was doing after the game, he said, “Not great.”

Melvin described Lee's shoulder as “dislocated” although a Giants spokesman later explained the injury as a “dislocated” shoulder. Lee will have an MRI on Monday.

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

Lee recorded a .262 batting average with two home runs, eight RBIs and a .641 OPS in 36 games this season while serving as the Giants' primary center fielder.
