Torres, DeRosa activated
Tuesday, May 10
SAN FRANCISCO — As anticipated, the Giants activated center fielder Andres Torres and utilityman Mark DeRosa from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday.
Both were immediately installed in the lineup for the series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks at AT&T Park. Torres, recovered from a strained left Achilles tendon, returned to the leadoff spot. DeRosa, who overcame inflammation in his left wrist, was to bat seventh and start at third base.
The return of Torres and DeRosa had inevitable ramifications for other position players, since some had to be benched.
Still in, at least for one night: Cody Ross,right field; Aaron Rowand, left field; Mike Fontenot, shortstop.
Benched, at least for one night: Outfielders Pat Burrell and Nate Schierholtz, infielder Miguel Tejada.
