SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco Giants have placed outfielder Justin Christian on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left wrist and called up Francisco Peguero to the majors for the first time.
The Giants made the moves before opening a four-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday. All-Star catcher Buster Posey also was out of the lineup for the second straight game because of tightness in his right hamstring.
Christian injured his wrist during Wednesday night's 8-4 win at the Los Angeles Dodgers. He ran full speed toward the left field corner and robbed Juan Rivera of extra bases with a diving catch on the warning track in the seventh with a runner on first base.
Peguero has batted .272 with five home runs and 68 RBIs for Triple-A Fresno.
