Jeremy Affeldt (knee) will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday.

Apr 15 - 7:41 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Saturday that Jeremy Affeldt will need more than two minor league rehab appearances before he's ready to rejoin the Giants bullpen.

That means that it could be the end of next week, as opposed to April 9 when he's first eligible, that Affeldt returns to the Giants. He'll return to his usual setup role upon returning.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Jeremy Affeldt (knee) is on track to return on April 9.

Mar 31 - 7:54 PM

Giants placed LHP Jeremy Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list with a strained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

Affeldt was slowed by a groin injury to start camp and sustained the MCL sprain just days before the team broke camp. He'll miss another week to 10 days, but the Giants are hoping to have the reliever back by mid-April.
Mar 29 - 6:14 PM

Jeremy Affeldt will miss 10 to 14 days due to a strained medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

The left-hander will start the season on the disabled list as a result of the injury. It's a tough blow, as Affeldt missed two months last year due to a strained left groin. The Giants signed him to a three-year, $18 million contract last winter are hoping to have him back by mid-April.
Mar 26 - 7:39 PM

Jeremy Affeldt (groin) is scheduled to pitch an inning in Monday's Cactus League contest against the Padres.

The veteran left-hander missed the final two months of the 2013 regular season with a strained left groin, and has been brought along cautiously in his rehab. He still has sufficient time to get himself game-ready before the start of the regular season.
Mar 2 - 6:18 PM

Giants general manager Brian Sabean said Monday that Jeremy Affeldt (groin) is nearing 100 percent.

Affeldt missed most of the last two months of the season due to a left groin strain, but it doesn't sound like he'll be behind at all in spring training. The veteran left-hander posted a 3.74 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 33 2/3 innings this past season.
