Chris Heston recalled by Giants, placed on 60-day disabled list
The San Francisco Giants recalled pitcher Chris Heston from Triple-A Sacramento and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with an oblique strain.
This is merely a formality to open up a 40-man roster spot to allow a spot for infielder Ruben Tejada. Heston suffered the oblique injury in a start for Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Heston had a 3.77 ERA, 15.5 percent strikeout rate, and 8.3 percent walk rate across 71 2/3 innings pitched (12 starts) since being dropped down to the minors near the end of April.
