Nady's hamstring strain mild, but return uncertain
SAN FRANCISCO -- An MRI on Xavier Nady's injured left hamstring confirmed a strain, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said before Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Nady sustained the injury while attempting to catch a seventh-inning double against the D-backs on Wednesday, and Bochy said that though the injury isn't serious, the Giants remain unsure how long the 33-year-old veteran will be sidelined.

"It's hard to say how long," Bochy said. "It could be four to five days or it could be seven to 10 days. He feels that he can be sooner than later. He's done it before, and he said it feels a lot better than the last time he did it."

Nady had briefly become the go-to option in left field after joining the team from Triple-A Fresno, and Bochy said Wednesday the team will need to "get creative" to replace Nady in left field, starting with Brandon Belt getting the start there Friday.
