Longoria (hand) is expected to resume taking swings in about a week, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria has seemingly progressed as anticipated after undergoing surgery June 19 to repair his fractured left hand. He'll likely first start taking dry swings, then move on to hitting off a tee and in the cage before finally facing live pitching in batting practice. The third baseman was handed a 6-to-8-week recovery timeline after undergoing surgery, putting him in line for a return from the disabled list in early-to-mid August.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said "all went well" Tuesday when Longoria underwent surgery to repair a fractured left hand, Martin Oppegaard of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria will head to the Giants' spring training facility in Arizona before returning to San Francisco over the weekend to begin his rehab, which is expected to last around 6-to-8 weeks. With Longoria likely on the shelf until at least early August, Pablo Sandoval and Alen Hanson are expected to share duties at third base.

Longoria (hand) will undergo surgery Tuesday to address his fractured left hand, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The typical recovery timetable is 6-to-8 weeks, which could have Longoria back around the start of August, but he apparently plans to work towards a quick return just after the All-Star break, which ends July 20. Regardless, specifics are unlikely to be available until he begins the rehab process post-surgery.

Longoria was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured hand Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria was hit in the left hand by a pitch Thursday against the Marlins. He's expected to miss at least six weeks and could miss over two months if surgery is required. Alen Hanson started in his place Friday, though Pablo Sandoval could slide over from first base once Brandon Belt (appendicitis) returns from the disabled list, which is expected to happen Saturday.

Longoria (hand) will see Dr. Steven Shin for an evaluation of his fractured hand Saturday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants and Longoria will be hoping that Dr. Shin doesn't recommend surgery, in which case a return within six weeks may be a possibility. If surgery is required, though, Longoria may miss upwards of two months, which would push his return date deep into August. Either way, expect Longoria to be officially placed on the 10-day disabled list soon.

Longoria sustained a fractured fifth metacarpal of his left hand during Thursday's game against Miami, Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Giants have yet to release a timetable for Longoria's injury, but it's expected that the third baseman will miss approximately six weeks, which was a similar timeframe to that of Josh Harrison and Madison Bumgarner, who each suffered the same injury earlier this season. Longoria was removed from Thursday's contest a short time after getting struck by a pitch in the fourth inning. Going off the six week timeline, Longoria will likely be sidelined until late-July/early-August, though a better gauge of his eventual return will come into focus in the coming weeks. In his absence, look for Pablo Sandoval to remain a regular contributor even with the return of Brandon Belt (abdomen) on the horizon. Alen Hanson could also see an uptick in playing time.

Longoria was removed from Thursday's game with an apparent left hand injury, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria was initially able to stay in the game after taking a pitch off his left hand in top of the fourth inning, but he was ultimately replaced by Alen Hanson before the bottom half of the frame. Specifics regarding the injury remain unclear at this point, though more should be known after he's further evaluated following the conclusion of Thursday's series finale. Longoria struck out in his only other at-bat prior to exiting.

Longoria is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Nationals, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Longoria started the last 28 games at third base for the Giants, with Friday providing a good option to take a day off as manager Bruce Bochy stacks the lineup with left-handed bats against Stephen Strasburg. Alen Hanson will bat sixth and start at third base for the Giants on Friday.
