Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Placed on 10-day IL
Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day injured list with a low back strain Saturday.
Gonzalez left Friday's game early due to a back injury, and he'll be forced to miss at least a week and a half. He'll be eligible to return during the Giants' final regular-season series, although it's not yet clear whether he'll be activated at that point since the team is unlikely to make the playoffs. Ford Proctor was recalled to take Gonzalez's place on the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Plays through back issue
Gonzalez (back) went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday's 5-0 loss to the Dodgers.
Gonzalez accounted for one of the Giants' three baserunners in the game. He missed one game with back soreness, but it's evidently a minor issue as he was able to replace LaMonte Wade (side) for Friday's game. Gonzalez has gone 5-for-20 (.250) across his last eight games, but he'll likely be limited to the strong side of a platoon in right field. He's slashing a middling .252/.322/.361 through 93 contests.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Enters lineup Friday
Gonzalez (back) will start in right field and bat ninth Friday against the Dodgers, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 27-year-old has been battling back soreness this week, but he'll join the lineup Friday after LaMonte Wade was scratched with side tightness. Gonzalez has a .189/.268/.243 slash line in 14 games since he was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in late August.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Dealing with stiff back
Gonzalez isn't starting Wednesday against Atlanta due to a stiff back, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gonzalez started the last four games, and manager Gabe Kapler said that the 27-year-old would have been in Wednesday's lineup if he was healthy. It's not yet clear whether Gonzalez will be available off the bench Wednesday, but he'll be able to rest Thursday since the Giants have a scheduled day off.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Heads to bench Wednesday
Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Gonzalez will rest in the series finale after he went 2-for-9 with a walk and an RBI while starting each of the past four games. Though he still looks like the Giants' fourth outfielder behind Joc Pederson, Mike Yastrzemski and LaMonte Wade, Gonzalez should continue to get the opportunity to play semi-regularly while Wade often makes cameos at first base....

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Resting against southpaw
Gonzalez isn't starting Friday against the Cubs.
Gonzalez has started against a pair of left-handed pitchers since the start of September, but he'll head to the bench Friday with southpaw Drew Smyly on the mound for the Cubs. Mike Yastrzemski is starting in right field and batting sixth.... See More ... See Less

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Sits versus lefty
Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Rookie outfielder Bryce Johnson will take Gonzalez's place in right field, batting ninth.... See More ... See Less

Gonzalez (illness) is starting in right field and batting eighth Monday against San Diego, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Gonzalez was held out of Sunday's series finale against Minnesota while tending to an illness, but he's since received clearance to return.

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Dealing with illness
Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins while tending to an illness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Gonzalez is expected to serve as a fourth outfielder during his latest stint with the big club, but he likely would have been in line to start Sunday with left fielder Joc Pederson (groin) day-to-day with an injury. Instead, Gonzalez will wind up joining Pederson on the bench while he's under the weather, resulting in Austin Slater picking up a start alongside LaMonte Wade and Mike Yastrzemski in the outfield....

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Called up from Triple-A
Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Gonzalez spent the last week and a half in the minors and went 4-for-17 with three runs, an RBI, five walks and seven strikeouts over five games at Sacramento. However, he'll rejoin the major-league club Saturday, and it's possible that he carves out a role in the short side of a platoon in the outfield after Bryce Johnson was sent down.... See More ...

Gonzalez was sent to the minors in mid-August, and he went 4-for-17 with three runs, an RBI, five walks and seven strikeouts over five games during his time at Sacramento. The 26-year-old should provide outfield depth and will likely be in the lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Twins.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Sent to Triple-A
Gonzalez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
Gonzalez had been playing nearly everyday in the outfield for the Giants, but his playing time slipped over the past couple weeks while mired in a 1-for-30 slump. The 26-year-old has a .256/.326/.374 slash line with four home runs, 32 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 78 games this year, and he could return to the majors down the stretch if San Francisco requires outfield depth....

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Swipes bag Saturday
Gonzalez went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Pirates.
Gonzalez got aboard on an error and stole second in the sixth inning, but he was left there after LaMonte Wade and Austin Slater struck out. It's been a rough August for Gonzalez, who is hitting just .139 (5-for-36) with three RBI, two runs scored, a steal and a double through 11 contests this month. The prolonged slump has dropped his slash line to .260/.331/.380 with four home runs, 10 steals, 32 RBI and 26 runs scored through 284 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Records steal in win
Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Cubs.
Gonzalez is batting .273 in 10 games since the All-Star break, and he's added a home run, two doubles, three RBI and four runs scored in that span. The outfielder appears to be the Giants' top option in left field while Joc Pederson (concussion) is on the injured list. Gonzalez is slashing .280/.347/.416 with nine steals, four homers, 29 RBI and 24 runs scored in 66 contests overall.... See More ... See Less

Gonzalez had gone 0-for-8 in his previous two games before breaking the slump in his second at-bat Saturday. He took Cubs starter Drew Smyly deep to right field in the fourth inning. Gonzalez is up to four homers, 29 RBI, 24 runs scored and eight stolen bases while slashing .281/.346/.419 through 65 contests. The 26-year-old should have a consistent spot in the lineup against right-handed pitchers while Joc Pederson (concussion) is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Empty line in return
Gonzalez (back) went 0-for-5 in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Cubs.
Gonzalez missed Thursday's game with a back injury, and he wasn't able to do anything in his return to the lineup. With Joc Pederson (concussion) on the injured list, Gonzalez will have less competition for playing time over the next week. The 26-year-old will still need to take advantage of it -- he's gone 7-for-25 (.280) in eight games since the All-Star break, and he's slashing .282/.348/.408 with three home runs, 27 RBI, 23 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 64 contests overall....
