 SAN DIEGO (AP) -The San Francisco Giants placed infielder Rich Aurilia on the 15-day disabled list Saturday night with a strained right hamstring that he hurt three nights earlier at Dodger Stadium.
The club waited until minutes before the first pitch of its game against the San Diego Padres to announce the move, which is retroactive to Thursday. General manager Brian Sabean said he was still evaluating options and needed to see how Aurilia came out of his pregame on-field work. A couple of hours earlier, Aurilia had said he was ``getting better every day.''
``As of right now, this is the cleanest for us,'' Sabean said. ``We had to wait to see how he responded to what he did before the game. He hasn't played since Wednesday and wasn't sure about playing next week, and there's no time to fool around.''
The Giants had to clear roster room for starting pitcher Pat Misch, the rookie left-hander recalled from Triple-A Fresno to face the Padres in the second game of San Francisco's weekend series.
San Francisco is in the middle of a stretch with 31 games in 30 days, which includes a makeup doubleheader at Pittsburgh on Aug. 13 before series in Atlanta and Florida. Sabean said he might even need to add a 13th pitcher. Right-hander Russ Ortiz was slated to make his final rehab start for Fresno on Saturday night and will probably be activated soon, perhaps to start Thursday afternoon's home game against the Washington Nationals.
``If he passes that (test Saturday), we'll be anxious to get him up here,'' Sabean said.
Misch, who turns 26 on Aug. 18 and is in his second stint in the big leagues this season, made his first major league start. He had six relief appearances in July.
This is Aurilia's second stint on the DL this year after being shelved from June 18 to July 1 with a neck strain.
