Affeldt goes on disabled list with left knee injury

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The San Francisco Giants placed left-hander Jeremy Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday after he sustained a left knee subluxation while playing with his children a day earlier.

Affeldt is 2-2 with a 5.46 ERA in 44 games this season. The Giants announced the move before their game against the Chicago Cubs.

The Giants recalled right-hander Mike Broadway from Triple-A Sacramento to take Affeldt's place. Broadway appeared in six games with the team earlier in the year, recording a 3.68 ERA.
