Marco Scutaro on his finger: “It was all bent. It was like a snake. It looked pretty bad”

Marco Scutaro left last night’s game after taking a pitch to his left hand. It doesn’t sound like he’ll be back for a while. At first he thought it was broken. It’s not, X-rays were negative. But it’s not right. He described it thusly:

Scutaro said that the inability to straighten his finger may be caused by a damaged tendon on the top side of the finger.

“You try to pull it straight and it goes back down,” he said, mimicking a snapping movement with his other hand. “It was all bent,” he said. “It was like a snake. It looked pretty bad.”

So, yeah, ick. Also: tendons can take longer to heal than bones, so this can’t be good news for the Giants.
