San Francisco Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro is out indefinitely with an injury to the pinkie finger on his left hand.

The finger took a direct hit from a fastball by Pittsburgh's Tony Watson while batting in the seventh inning of an 8-2 loss on Tuesday night. X-rays were negative. Scutaro said Wednesday he has some ligament damage near the tip of the finger. He was replaced in the lineup by Tony Abreu.

Manager Bruce Bochy said the team will wait a few days to see if Scutaro's injury responds to rest and treatment. There is a chance Scutaro could attempt to play this weekend when the Giants are in Atlanta.

The 37-year-old is batting .332 with two home runs and 15 RBIs in 58 games.
