Giants left-handed reliever Jeremy Affeldt was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday. The veteran pitcher is dealing with left knee subluxation. Affeldt missed time on the DL earlier this season due to a shoulder strain. Affeldt was told he has a torn ligament in his knee, but he is not expected to need surgery, and should be able to pitch again this season. To replace him on the roster, the Giants recalled right-hander Mikel Broadway from Triple-A Sacramento.
A week after promoting right-handed reliever Mike Broadway from Triple-A Sacramento, the Giants have demoted him and brought up southpaw Josh Osich from the same team, per the San Francisco Chronicle. Broadway struggled after a decent start with San Francisco. He allowed three runs on five hits in his last 5 1/3 innings. Osich, who pitched just twice for Sacramento after his promotion from Double-A, has been tearing it up. He has 19 saves in 20 chances and has surrendered just one run in his last 13 innings.

Machi pitched in four games for Triple-A Sacramento before his recall and hurled five shutout innings with six strikeouts. To open up a spot on the roster, the team sent pitcher Michael Broadway back to the River Cats. He performed well in his short time with San Francisco, allowing one run in 4 2/3 innings.
