Giants place OF Torres on DL

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - The San Francisco Giants placed outfielder Andres Torres on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a strained left Achilles tendon.

Torres sustained the injury during Wednesday's 12-1 loss at the hands of the Boston Red Sox.

The 35-year-old veteran is batting .250 with two home runs and 21 RBI through 103 games with the Giants.

San Francisco also optioned pitcher Michael Kickham to Triple-A Fresno, while recalling infielder Nick Noonan and outfielder Francisco Peguero from Fresno.

Kickham made his major league debut on May 28 and pitched to an 0-3 record with a 10.72 earned run average over six games, including three starts.

Noonan has appeared in 52 games with San Francisco this season, compiling a .213 average with two doubles and five RBI.

Peguero has recorded three hits in 16 at-bats over six games with the Giants this season.
