is out with a strained thumb ligament for the best-of-three playoff series that starts Tuesday night.

Late Tuesday afternoon, manager Lenn Sakata confirmed Parker’s thumb injury.

“It happened on a swing that first night in San Jose,” Sakata said. “It’s day-to-day but it’s not getting any better. “We can’t risk any further injury so it’s been decided that he’ll sit out the first round and we’ll decide where he’s at after that.”
