Giants outfielder Pat Burrell has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a bone spur in his foot. As a corresponding move, the Giants have recalled Hector Sanchez, not hyped prospect Brandon Belt (Extra Baggs on Twitter).

Upon casual glance, Burrell going down wouldn't seem like a big deal. With the Giants, though, this matters. Only the Padres have a worse slugging percentage in the National League, so the Giants need all the offensive punch they can find. Burrell has nine homers, seven doubles and is slugging .419. Of the Giants' regulars, only Pablo Sandoval and Nate Schierholtz have better slugging percentages.

Sanchez, 21, is a catcher who swings a good bat. He was hitting .305 with a .370 on-base percentage in 25 Triple-A games. Since Buster Posey was lost for the season, the Giants have gotten basically no production on offense from their catchers.

As a giant fan im tired of the injuries but i think the Twins have lost more players to injuries then the giants,hell they  lost mauer, Morneanu, span, kubel, and young,,,,allll  damn good players, and yes i cant spell half those names, anyway, dont understand why we brought up a 3rd catcher? I heard hes gonna catch zito and possibly MadBum since he caught them last yr and zito this yr in minors. Unless they brought him up to possibly trade him to another team. but we need to do something soon

Bochy cursed

How is it even possible to be in the race with this team and all of these injuries?  Has any team in the Majors this year suffered more losses to the emergency ward?
