Arias exits after getting hit by pitch
SAN FRANCISCO -- Giants third baseman Joaquin Arias sustained a left forearm contusion when he was hit by a pitch in the fourth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Colorado Rockies.

X-rays taken of the injured area revealed no fracture and Giants manager Bruce Bochy termed Arias' playing status as day to day.

"Good news on the X-rays," Bochy said, hinting that Arias could be in Wednesday's lineup. Arias, batting with one out, couldn't dodge an inside fastball thrown by Rockies starter Jeremy Guthrie. Bochy and athletic trainer Anthony Reyes examined Arias, who was in obvious pain and left the game immediately. Arias was replaced as a baserunner by Charlie Culberson. One inning later, Emmanuel Burriss moved from second base to third while Culberson occupied second.

Since the Giants purchased his contract from Triple-A Fresno on April 25, Arias has started 15 of San Francisco's last 19 games -- seven at third base, six at shortstop and two at second base.
