The Giants have placed starter Tim Hudson on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder, per Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News. The move creates roster space for Mike Leake, acquired from the Reds just after midnight on Friday.
Hudson, 40, was on the disabled list between June 27 and July 19 with a strained shoulder and made only two starts before winding up back on the shelf. In 17 starts overall this season, the veteran has a 4.80 ERA with a 53/26 K/BB ratio in 101 1/3 innings.
Leake will debut for the Giants on Sunday in Texas against the Rangers.
