The Giants have placed second baseman Freddy Sanchez on the disabled list with a dislocated right shoulder.
The team signed utility player Bill Hall in the wake of the injury to Sanchez. Comcast SportsNet's Amy Gutierrez has been following the situation, and reports via Twitter that Hall will be wearing jersey No. 29, and is listed as available on today's lineup.Hall was released by the Astros on June 4.Hall was batting .224 in 147 at-bats and 46 games at the time of his release. He is an eight-year Major League veteran.Hall hit 18 homers in 382 plate appearances for Boston in 2010 but struggled at the plate this season.
Sanchez, the Giants' leading hitter, was batting .289 with three homers and 24 RBIs.
Warriors rookie Jordan Bell made an instant impact for the team this season. But as of late, his playing time has dwindled. In four of the Warriors' last five games, Bell has been inactive.
“It's just the life of a rookie,” Bell said to The Athletic. “That's what Steve Kerr always tells me. It's not because I'm playing bad. Just gotta be professional about it and stay ready. It's like being a freshman all over again.”
While Bell wants to be on the court with his teammates, what he appreciates most from Steve Kerr is his communication. Kerr is always honest about when he won't play Bell and he keeps the former Oregon Duck encouraged.
“He talks to me about it every time he sees me,” Bell said. “Lets me know I'm not going to be active. Keep doing what you're doing, you're doing good. But it still f------ sucks. You're playing well and it doesn't mean anything because you're younger. It sucks, but you got to be professional about it.”
Bell has played in 12 of the Warriors' 18 games this season. The 22-year-old is averaging 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game over 8.3 minutes per game.
The Warriors bought the 38th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft from the Chicago Bulls and selected Bell. On Friday night, the Warriors, and perhaps Bell, play the Bulls for the first time this season.
