Affeldt goes on DL with groin strain

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Giants lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt will be sidelined up to six weeks after he strained his left groin Saturday, feeling and hearing a pop on a pitch against Arizona.

 

Affeldt was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, while San Francisco recalled right-hander Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno to take his place.

 

Affeldt, who already missed time with a strained right oblique muscle, said he had experienced some discomfort in the groin for a couple of weeks and might have "cost" the team some games by pitching through it because he altered his delivery and pitch selection.

 

In April 2011, he sprained his right knee after reaching out to catch his son. On Sept. 8, 2011, he sliced his non-throwing hand nearly to an artery separating frozen hamburgers.
