MLB.com: Giants place [Andres] Torres on DL, recall Belt

The Giants placed outfielder Andres Torres on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a contusion in his lower right leg. Brandon Belt was recalled from Triple-A Fresno to take Torres’ spot on the roster.
...
The 23-year-old Belt was hitting .309 with eight homers and 32 RBIs in 49 games with the Grizzlies. The Giants’ top prospect has spent time at first base and the two corner outfield positions.

This marks the fourth time Belt, who was the Giants’ Opening Day first baseman, has been with San Francisco this season. In 31 games, he has a .218 average with two homers and seven RBIs. Two of his 20 starts this year have come in left field.

“He’s going to come up and help,” Bochy said. “When you have a young player, you want to get him in there as much as you can, but at the same time, you have your veterans you still believe in. I will say I’ll do all I can to get his at-bats in there, because I think we need some help, and now it’s going to be up to Brandon to handle this well and get off some good at-bats.”

Two home runs today! He had better stay in the lineup.

Wow, Andres Torres has sucked a big one this year, hasn't he?
