Giants place pitcher Blake Snell on 15-day injured list with left adductor strain

San Francisco Giants left-hander Blake Snell was scratched from Wednesday’s scheduled start against the New York Mets and placed on the 15-day injured list because of left adductor strain.

Giants manager Bob Melvin called him a moderate strain. There were no immediate details on the timetable for Snell’s return.

“(The injury happened) the other day while he was throwing his bullpen,” Melvin said. “And then it kind of shut down. The next day he came out and threw a little more on it, tried to lean on it a little bit. … Obviously losing it for, we don’t know how many yet time, it’s not great.

Snell, the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner with the San Diego Padres, went 0-3 with an 11.57 ERA in his first three starts after signing a $62 million contract. dollars over two years with the Giants last month. The 31-year-old allowed 15 earned runs and 18 hits in 11 2/3 innings, with 12 strikeouts and five walks.

Snell is one of seven pitchers in MLB history to win Cy Young Awards in the National League and American League. He won the 2018 AL Cy Young Award with the Tampa Bay Rays.

In 194 starts between the Rays, Padres and Giants, Snell is 71-58 with a 3.30 ERA.

San Francisco recalled right-hander Landen Roupp from Triple-A Sacramento and announced that right-handed reliever Ryan Walker would open Wednesday’s series finale against New York.

The Giants won the first two games of the series and will look to earn their first home sweep against the Mets since June 6-8, 2014.

Left-hander Sean Manaea, who pitched for San Francisco last season, will start Wednesday’s game for New York.
