Giants | Jeremy Affeldt to DL

The San Francisco Giants placed RP Jeremy Affeldt (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list. RP Jean Machi was recalled in his place.

Fantasy Tip: This cements Santiago Casilla, at least for now, as the primary backup to closer Sergio Romo, whom the Giants may rest more in the coming weeks because of his furious early-season workload. Casilla isn't a bad deep-league grab, but his SV contributions will be infrequent without a Romo injury. Casilla's erratic peripherals might not be worth putting into your lineup unless you're in a daily format and the incumbent's workload piles up.
