The San Francisco Giants on Sunday announced they have placed right-handed starter Jeff Samardzija on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. Taking his place on the roster is infielder Kelby Tomlinson, called up from Triple-A Sacramento for the third time this season.

Samardzija, who missed more than a month with shoulder tightness, struggled in a 4-3 loss to Oakland on Saturday, his second game since returning from the first DL stint. After the game, he told reporters he had trouble keeping his shoulder loose during the outing. In his two starts in July, Samardzija, 33, has pitched a total of nine innings, giving up five runs and 10 hits as his team lost both times.

Tomlinson, 28, is batting .221 in 48 games with the Giants, with just five extra-base hits in 113 at-bats.
