Giants fan Bryan Stow, injured in an Opening Day attack in Los Angeles, underwent successful shunt surgery, his family announced on their website Tuesday.
According to the site, Stow's "surgery went smooth and the CT scan came back looking good." The family also reported that they saw Bryan and his eyes were open.
The Santa Cruz paramedic was attacked on Opening Day at Dodger Stadium and has been hospitalized since. Earlier this week his lawyers estimated that Stows medical costs would exceed 50 million.Louie Sanchez, 29, and Marvin Norwood, 30, are charged with mayhem, assault and battery in the attack on Stow.Prosecutors contend that Sanchez hit two of Stow's friends before chasing down Stow and punching him from behind in the side of his head.
Eduardo Nunez's time with the Giants is up as they have reportedly traded the third baseman to the Boston Red Sox.
Fox Sports was the first to report the news.
The Giants will acquire two minor league pitchers, according to USA Today.
Nunez was lifted for pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning Tuesday night and was seen hugging teammates as he left the dugout.
In 75 games with the Giants this season, Nunez hit .308/.334/.417 with 21 doubles, four home runs, 29 RBI and 17 stolen bases.
Nunez was acquired from the Twins last summer for two prospects.
