Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt is reportedly heading to the disabled list after suffering a right oblique strain.
An MRI confirmed the injury after Affeldt told the team on Monday he was experiencing pain on his right side. It’s still unclear how the left-hander suffered the injury. We think it’s safe to say frozen hamburger patties weren’t involved.
In a related move, the Giants called up right-hander Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno.
