July 31, 2022
Walton (undisclosed) was placed on Triple-A Sacramento's injured list earlier this week, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
ANALYSIS
Walton's injury in the minors comes at a tough time for the major-league squad, which is now down Brandon Crawford (knee) and Thairo Estrada (head). The nature of Walton's injury is unknown, and he won't be able to return until the latter part of next week at the earliest, though it's unclear if the Giants will still have a need at shortstop once he's healthy.
