The San Francisco Giants have purchased the contract of second baseman Dan Uggla from Triple A-Fresno and put him in the starting lineup for the opener of a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants placed second baseman Marco Scutaro and infielder Ehire Adrianza on the 15-day disabled list before Friday night’s game. San Francisco also designated left-handed pitcher Jose De Paula and infielder Nick Noonan for assignment.

Uggla was playing second and batting seventh. He was released last week by Atlanta after hitting just .162 and losing his starting job. San Francisco signed him to a minor league deal Monday.

Scutaro returned to the disabled list with a strained lower back after playing just five games this season. Adrianza has a strained right hamstring.
