San Francisco Giants outfielder Jung Hoo Lee landed on the 10-day disabled list on Monday after dislocating his left shoulder on Sunday.

Lee, 25, injured his shoulder on the center field fence while trying to catch a first-inning drive by the Cincinnati Reds’ Jeimer Candelario.

The Giants are awaiting word on the severity of the injury after Lee underwent an MRI exam on Monday and met with team doctors. Manager Bob Melvin said the team will receive more clarity on Lee’s return timeteable in the near future.

More on Jung Hoo Lee

Lee joins fellow outfielder Michael Conforto (hamstring), along with left-hander Blake Snell (adductor), designated hitter Jorge Soler (shoulder), catcher Tom Murphy (knee) and shortstop Nick Ahmed (wrist) on the injured list. In addition, outfielder and Austin Slater is on the 7-day concussion list.

Catcher Patrick Bailey is dealing with cold symptoms and hasn’t played since coming off the concussion list on Saturday.

Lee, who signed a six-year, $113 million deal in the offseason, is batting just .262 with two homers and eight RBIs in 37 games but is excelling in center field.

“He’s very team oriented and wants to be out there for his team and therefore is disappointed,” Melvin said. “But there’s not much you can do about it. You make an all-out effort like that to catch a ball in the first inning.

“If you make that play it’s a huge momentum swing. Now all of a sudden our center fielder is down. … I’m sure he’s feeling it right now. He wants to be out there for his team.”
