Giants Infielder Placed On Injured List

The San Francisco Giants have been dealt some bad news, as Brandon Crawford has been placed on the 10-day injured list with knee inflammation. 

Crawford suffered his injury earlier this week, but originally avoided the IL. However, it has become too much of a burden, so the veteran infielder will be missing some time. 

It's been a bit of a slow year for Crawford, however, as he has five home runs, 30 RBIs, and a low .224 batting average. However, even with the rough campaign, he is still a very valuable piece of the Giants' roster, so his absence will be noticeable.
