Giants boss Bruce Bochy confirmed that the 29yr old was on the disable list with 10-day recovery after undergoing a surgery on the pinkie finger of his right hand. This could lead to the recall of Pierce Johnson from Triple-A Sacremento in a corresponding move. Bochy who have been faced with many injury crisis this season wasn’t delighted to add Strickland to the list. Bochy confirmed that baseball player Mark Melancon who began the season with elbow injury is yet to have return date while citing that either Sam Dyson or Tony Watson as the possible candidates to play in Strickland.
