SF Giants Rumors: Culberson Injured, Vogelsong Sick, Wilson On Track, And Burrell To Be Back In Uniform

Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via twitter), infielder Charlie Culberson dropped a weight on the tip of his finger and broke it. He’s out indefinitely, says Baggarly.
In another tweet, Baggarly says Ryan Vogelsong was sent home today with an illness. Vogelsong seems to have bad luck as he’s already out with a back injury. Manager Bruce Bochy says it’s best to get it all out of the way now.

Jaymee Sire of CSNBayArea.com says (via twitter) closer Brian Wilson is on track to pitch in the 2nd week of Spring Training games.

That’s really good news as some Giants fans were a little worried about Wilson since he was shut down early towards the end of the 2011 season.

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says Pat Burrell could be back in a Giants uniform as an instructor down in Scottsdale like Will Clark, Robb Nen and Shawon Dunston.

What’s your thoughts on Culberson’s injury, Vogelsong’s bad luck, Wilson on track to pitch the 2nd week of Spring Training games and Burrell back in uniform as a coach?

    Pat’s back, and that’s good news.

  • fast freddie says:

    Great to see Pat back…now all the Giants need to do is sign Pat and Will Clark as co-batting coaches and we got it made…dump
    “wimp” “wimp”

    Another side …Trade Wilson while he is
    still able to pitch. If Hembree doesn’t do it Rome can.

    Once more…Trade “Fragile Timmy” A.S.A.P
    “Fragile Timmy” and “Gut Wrencher Brian” will get us all the power we need plus some pitching….Oh to Dream.
