The San Francisco Giants have placed left-hander Jeremy Affeldt 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 Bruce Bochy 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. Affeldt, a 14-year MLB veteran, is a graduate of Northwest Christian. The three-time World Series champion with the Giants has pitched 21 consecutive scoreless innings in the postseason, but struggled this season with a 5.96 ERA in 33 appearances. – AP
