SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — San Francisco Giants outfielder Andres Torres has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left Achilles’ tendon and might not return this season.

Torres said the injury has lingered since the start of 2011 after he helped the Giants win a World Series championship the previous fall. He is scheduled to get a second opinion and be examined by specialist Dr. Robert Anderson next week in North Carolina and hopes to avoid surgery — though an MRI exam showed bone spurs in the area.

Manager Bruce Bochy didn’t rule out Torres’ season ending, especially with the reigning World Series champions out of the playoff race and planning to try out many young players over the season’s final month. Bochy said “there’s no rush to get Andres back.”
