There was no appetite for instant replay … in Mayberry

Rick Chandler takes us back 46 years to Mayberry, North Carolina. A time and a place where, like major league baseball in 2012, there was no appetite for instant replay of controversial baseball calls.

But hey, even if they covered it all up, at least it was used!

Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Giants pitcher Dereck Rodriguez has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring. Rodriguez apparently suffered the injury during Tuesday’s altercation with the Dodgers which featured Yasiel Puig and Nick Hundley.

Rodriguez, 22, has been having an outstanding rookie season, posting a 2.25 ERA with a 65/19 K/BB ratio in 80 innings across 12 starts and two relief appearances.

Casey Kelly will start in Rodriguez’s place against the Reds on Friday.
