The Giants have placed lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder, CSN Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic reports. Right-hander Michael Broadway has been recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take Affeldt’s place on the roster.

Affeldt, 36, was hit around for four runs on three hits and a walk in his most recent appearance on Thursday against the Padres. He was unable to record an out before he was lifted. It appears his ailing left shoulder was to blame. Even aside from that outing, it’s been a tough year for Affeldt, as he owns a 5.96 ERA with a 13/11 K/BB ratio in 22 2/3 innings.
