San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - As expected, the San Francisco Giants placed right-hander Ryan Vogelsong on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
Vogelsong fractured two bones and sustained a dislocated joint in the pinkie finger of his right hand while swinging at a pitch in the Giants' 8-0 victory over the Washington Nationals on Monday.
The 35-year-old veteran was unable to finish the at-bat, as pinch-hitter Nick Noonan replaced him and grounded out to end the fifth inning. He was scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss four to six weeks.
Vogelsong is 2-4 with a 7.19 ERA in nine starts this season.
The club also placed right-hander Santiago Casilla on the DL due to a painful cyst in his right knee, which has limited him to just two appearances since May 8.
Casilla is 3-2 with one save and a 1.89 ERA in 21 games this season.
To fill the roster spots, the Giants recalled pitcher Sandy Rosario and first baseman Brett Pill from Triple-A Fresno.
Rosario was 1-1 with a 3.33 ERA in 16 relief appearances for Fresno this year. The right-hander threw just three pitches in a game for San Francisco on April 30, picking up his first big league victory in the process.
Pill played in three games last week for the Giants, going 2-for-6 with an RBI. He was hitting .365 with nine homers and 47 RBI in 35 contests for Fresno this season.
