the Giants winning three World Series in this decade curse continues:

Lincecum is dealing with a blister on his right middle finger, slowing down what was going to be an already tight schedule to make the Opening Day roster.

He was signed on March 7 and has thrown just two live batting practices since arriving in camp. Lincecum was supposed to pitch Friday against the Padres but scratched because of the blister.

"It's not bad today," Lincecum said. "Definitely desensitized. Just because it's feeling better one day doesn't mean it's 100 percent ready to go. Kind of rebuild that callus over the hole and then take the next step."

The next step will be to return to Texas with the Rangers, resume his throwing program and then go on a medical rehabilitation assignment to Double-A Frisco. The Rangers have no timetable on when he'll be able to rejoin the team.

Nelson Cruz slipped on the dugout steps after hitting a home run Saturday against Cleveland and was removed from the game. While his X-rays were negative, he'll also be having an MRI Sunday, so there remains the possibility that the issue is more than a minor one. The severity of the issue should become clear when the results of the MRI are released.

The Padres placed Wil Myers on the disabled list with nerve irritation.

9:55am: Molina will miss at least four weeks after suffering a “pelvic injury with traumatic hematoma,” the Cardinals announced (Twitter links via Joe Trezza of MLB.com). They’ve placed him on the DL and recalled Kelly. The club also recalled reliever Mike Mayers, who will take Dominic Leone’s place. Leone is headed to the DL with “right arm upper nerve irritation.”

8:11am: Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina underwent surgery Saturday after being hit in the groin by a foul tip, president of baseball operations John Mozeliak confirmed to Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Cardinals are now expected to go without Molina for at least a month.

Cardinals' Weaver misses start after cutting finger on food tray

Luke Weaver's fight with dinner prevented him from taking the mound Sunday.

The St. Louis Cardinals right-hander was scratched from his start against the Kansas City Royals after slicing the index finger of his pitching hand on aluminum foil that was covering a tray. The team attempted to glue the wound to allow him to pitch, but it would not hold.

"He cut it on the piece of the topping," Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said, according to ESPN.

"It's on his right index finger. He probably could have started, but it just made sense to not push it and have him throw 90 or 100 pitches. We didn't want him to miss another start."

Tyson Ross filled in for Weaver and allowed two runs over six innings while striking out four.

They say it's possible he could play the outfield next year even after TJ? I'm not sure how that would work -- outfielders still have to throw.

gleyber torres had TJ in late june last year, was hitting at the beginning of spring training and playing shortstop no later than the first week of april. so it seems like if he had the surgery now, he might not miss all that much time as a hitter next year. throwing in the upper 90s might be a good bit longer, tho

other AL contenders are reportedly upset about the donaldson trade to clevo -- the jays certified him as major-league healthy and only healthy players can go through waivers (which i didn't know), so his immediate DL-ing and rehab stint should have been unnecessary
