Christian Arroyo Headshot

Arroyo was placed back in the Giants' Thursday lineup after Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) was scratched, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Arroyo was given a break as he's enduring a slump, but Nunez's hamstring injury continues to bug him, so Arroyo's day off is cut short. He'll square up against the Cubs' Eddie Butler to try to right his season (.196/.248/.313 in 121 plate appearances).

Scott Wedgewood Headshot

Wedgewood (shoulder) served as the backup netminder for AHL Albany in their three overtime defeat to AHL Toronto.

Wedgewood was expected to miss six months, but was able to get clearance to at least serve as the No. 2 for Albany in the final two games of its Calder Cup run. The 24-year-old failed to crack New Jersey's lineup this season, but could replace Keith Kinkaid as the backup to Cory Schneider next year as Kinkaid will be an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Eduardo Núñez Headshot

Nunez (hamstring) was scratched from Thursday's lineup, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Christian Arroyo will slide back in at third base and bat eighth. Nunez, meanwhile, will need more time to recover from his hamstring injury, which could linger for at least a few more days.

Stephen Strasburg Headshot

Strasburg will start Saturday against the Padres, Mark Zuckerman of MASNsports.com reports.

The Nationals confirmed the right-hander's specific assignment for the weekend against the lowly Padres. Strasburg will match up with San Diego southpaw Clayton Richard.

Eduardo Núñez Headshot

Nunez (hamstring) is back in the Giants' lineup Thursday, batting sixth and playing third base, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's good news for Nunez, who's back in action after he tweaked his hamstring Wednesday. The versatile glove slides over to third base to spell the struggling Christian Arroyo. Nunez has delivered an acceptable follow-up to his breakout 2016 with a .277/.298/.370 performance with two home runs and 12 stolen bases over 45 games.
12:07 pm (EST)
Justin Ruggiano Headshot

Ruggiano is batting seventh and playing right field Thursday, Alec Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Ruggiano sneaks in a start with Christian Arroyo resting against the Cubs right-hander Eddie Butler. This year, Ruggiano has typically hit lefties (.308/.357/.308) better than righties (.214/233/.464) in his short 2017 sample size, which just about corresponds to his career trends.
