Athletics Place Wuertz On 15-day DL, Recall Ross; Giants Activate Brian Wilson

TORONTO (AP) — The Oakland Athletics placed right-hander Michael Wuertz on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Wednesday and recalled right-hander Tyler Ross from Triple-A Sacramento.

Wuertz was injured while working out before a recent game and had been unavailable for the past few days, manager Bob Geren said. Wuertz’s only appearance this season was a scoreless inning against Seattle on opening day. The move was retroactive to April 2.

Ross went 1-4 with a 5.49 ERA in 26 games with Oakland last season, his first in the major leagues. He pitched in five games during spring training, going 1-0 with a 0.59 ERA, giving up one run and striking out 10 in 15 1-3 innings.

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS–Activated RHP Brian Wilson. Placed RHP Santiago Casillo on the 15-day DL, retroactive to April 1
