Affeldt goes on DL with left shoulder strain; Broadway recalled


SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco Giants have placed left-hander on the 15-day disabled list with a strain in his pitching shoulder.

The Giants made the move before Friday night's game against the Colorado Rockies.

On Thursday, Affeldt did not retire any of the four hitters he faced against the San Diego Padres.

Giants manager said it was a gradual thing and Affeldt has been battling it for a while.

Right-hander Mike Broadway was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take Affledt's place on the 25-man roster.

Giants outfielder was to get an MRI on his bruised left knee and was not in the starting lineup.
