The Giants announced on Monday afternoon the club has placed third baseman Evan Longoria on the 10-day injured list due to plantar fasciitis. Pitcher Ray Black has been recalled from Triple-A Sacramento.

Longoria, 33, exited Sunday’s game against the Brewers after five innings due to discomfort in his left foot. Across 83 games this season, he’s hitting .241/.318/.446 with 13 home runs and 39 RBI in 311 trips to the plate.

Pablo Sandoval will handle third base in Longoria’s absence. Sandoval has had a career rebirth, posting an .860 OPS with 11 homers in 203 plate appearances
