Other news: Jeremy Affeldt is shut down for the rest of the season.
Affeldt likely done for the year, Bochy said. Felt more groin soreness in his outing at LA. Bochy met with him yesterday. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) September 18, 2013
Marco Scutaro should be, he’s done a lot for the team this year and despite issues with his back and mallet finger, has not been on the DL.
Scutaro’s MRI showed inflammation in finger. He wants to play again. Maybe in another day or two. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) September 18, 2013
