SAN DIEGO -- The San Francisco Giants have placed veteran utilityman Mark DeRosa on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with nerve inflammation in his left wrist.

To take his roster spot, the club recalled infielder-outfielder Eugenio Velez from Triple-A Fresno.

Velez was batting .186 following an 0-for-17 slide when he was demoted on May 7. He hit .292 in six games with Fresno.
