SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jonathan Sanchez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list for the San Francisco Giants with tendinitis in his left biceps following a recent string of erratic starts.

The Giants made the announcement before Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Indians. Fellow left-hander Barry Zito was activated and could start during a doubleheader Tuesday at the Chicago Cubs.

Sanchez allowed three runs on two hits but walked six in 4 2-3 innings Friday night. He also hit Cleveland’s Shin-Soo Choo with a pitch, breaking the right fielder’s left thumb.

Sanchez has failed to make it out of the fifth inning in his last two starts and has only one win since May 12.

Zito hasn’t pitched in the majors since he sprained his right foot on April 16 fielding a bunt.
