San Francisco Giants place LHP Jeremy Affeldt on 15-day with left oblique strain

San Francisco Giants left-hander Jeremy Affeldt has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

San Francisco recalled right-hander Joe Martinez from Triple-A Fresno to take Affeldt's place.

Affeldt was injured while warming up in the bullpen Friday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks. An MRI showed a slight tear of the oblique, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy hoped he'd be able to return after the 15 days was up.

Affeldt is 2-3 with a 4.11 ERA and three saves this season, and has not allowed a run in 12 of his last 13 outings. Without him, the Giants don't have a left-hander in the bullpen.

Martinez was 0-1 with a 4.00 ERA in three games in one previous stint with the big-league club this season.
