Mike Leake’s return from the disabled list has been delayed

Mike Leake was slated to come off the disabled list and rejoin the Giants’ rotation tonight against the Cardinals, but those plans have been canceled because his hamstring strain remains an issue.

That means Ryan Vogelsong will start in his place and Matt Cain will pitch Wednesday, with Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com reporting that Leake will “continue to get treatment for the strain” while “the plan is to have him back in the rotation this weekend in Pittsburgh.”

Leake made just one start for the Giants after they acquired the impending free agent from the Reds at the July 31 trade deadline for minor leaguers Keury Mella and Adam Duvall.
