Marco Scutaro will be re-evaluated to determine the extent of his hip injury.

X-rays on San Francisco Giants shortstop Marco Scutaro’s injured hip came back negative, but the results of an MRI taken last night haven’t been released yet, reports Alex Pavlovic of the Mercury News:

Scutaro sustained the injury in the top of 1st inning, as St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday came in hard with a slide. In his attempt to break up a double play, Holliday took out Scutaro. The infielder remained on the ground following the impact, and he was removed from the contest in the 6th inning.

While base runners generally come in harder during a slide when there is the chance of a double play, the Giants feel Holliday’s slide was illegal and dangerous. You can see the sequence here.

If Scutaro is forced to miss time due to the hip injury it would be a huge blow to the Giants. After coming over from the Colorado Rockies this summer the infielder hit .362/.385/.473 during the regular season and is 7-for-28 in the playoffs, including a 2-for-3 effort last night.
