Banged-Up Giants Put OF Beltran, RHP Romo On DL

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) – The World Series champion San Francisco Giants have placed outfielder Carlos Beltran and right-hander Sergio Romo on the 15-day disabled list.

Beltran went on the DL retroactive to Aug. 8 with a strained right hand, while Romo is on the DL retroactive to Aug. 10 with inflammation in his right elbow.

The Giants activated infielder Miguel Tejada off the DL earlier than expected. He was supposed to go on a minor league rehab assignment after missing 25 games with a lower abdominal strain, but San Francisco decided to bring him back earlier because of Beltran’s injury.

Left-hander Dan Runzler was called up from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday.
