PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The San Diego Padres placed second baseman Marcus Giles on the 15-day disabled list because of a left knee sprain Saturday.
Giles was injured Friday during the Padres' 14-3 victory when Philadelphia's Carlos Ruiz barreled into the infielder trying to break up a double play. Giles was visibly upset and confronted Ruiz immediately after the play. Both benches cleared but there were no punches thrown.
The team recalled infielder Craig Stansberry from Triple-A Portland and was in uniform Saturday night game against Philadelphia. Geoff Blum started at second for San Diego.
Stansberry was hitting .273 with 14 homers and 75 RBIs at Portland.
Giles was hitting .229 with four homers and 38 RBIs in 107 games.
