Giants’ Affeldt out

San Francisco Giants lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt will be sidelined up to six weeks after he strained his left groin Saturday, feeling and hearing a pop on a pitch against Arizona. Affeldt was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. Affeldt, who already missed time with a strained right oblique muscle, said he had experienced some discomfort in the groin for a couple of weeks and might have “cost” the team some games by pitching through it. He said it’s possible the two injuries are related. “Sometimes being a tough guy doesn’t always work out too well,” Affeldt said. “Sometimes you’ve got to learn when not to be one.” Affeldt, a graduate of Northwest Christian High School, is 1-4 with a 3.51 ERA in 38 appearances and 33 1/3 innings this season. – AP
