SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - San Francisco left-hander Javier Lopez will miss up to a week after a warmup pitch hit him on the top of his left hand during practice.
Lopez, who was catching for fellow left-hander Madison Bumgarner at the time, showed off the injury Wednesday, two days after the injury. The seams of the baseball were clearly visible on his hand.
Giants manager Bruce Bochy was not too concerned about it and did not think it will put Lopez behind schedule.
