Giants' George Kontos: Officially hits DL
Kontos (elbow) was officially placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
As expected, Kontos will hit the DL after he was diagnosed with a flexor strain in his throwing elbow earlier Tuesday. The 30-year-old, who's made eight appearances this season, has allowed one run on five hits through 5.2 innings. To beef up the bullpen in Kontos' absence, the team recalled both right-hander Mike Broadway and lefty Steven Okert from Triple-A Sacramento, while also optioning Chris Heston to Sacramento.
